Haasts Bluff is part of a privately owned rural fiefdom.
Being a privately owned fiefdom responsibility to provide services rests with the corporate owner, in this case the Haasts Bluff Land Trust.
The shareholders (aka Traditional Owners) of Haasts Bluff Land Trust with their private corporate ownership must accept that their shared ownership means it is their responsibility to provide their services.
Australians are entitled to certain levels of support.
Levels of support depends on population and levels of need.
Private landowners like Haasts Bluff Land Trust first need service themselves, using their own resources.
They may seek support for some services. Such support is assessed in terms of need, proportionally shared contributions.
If Haasts Bluff Land Trust, as a private property owner, is not prepared to provide basic services itself, nor provide reasonable security of tenure and leases, is unlikely there should be much support, whether from private or public moneys.
With clear security of tenure, and access, service providers determine levels of support they may then provide, as deemed appropriate to need and cost-benefit requirements.
Can John Paterson and AMSANT explain the levels of support they seek with clear comparisons to equivalent services received in similar sized communities around Australia?
Can the corporate owners of Haasts Bluff Land Trust, and their corporate realty agent, the Central Land Council, explain what they are doing to provide themselves these basic services ?
Around Australia most small towns equivalent in size to Haasts Bluff private village, neither have nor need permanent police presences. Their police often several hours away.
Indeed when we organised our move from Papunya to Kintore we knew our nearest police were several hours away.
Are John Paterson and AMSANT implying an excessive level of crime is occurring in the privately owned closed corporate village of Haasts Bluff?
Can John Paterson’s explain why lack of a police presence makes providing health services at Haasts Bluff fail to comply with occupational health and safety laws?

Care to identify some remarkably consistent patterns ?
Most easily to accept are possible various disruptions of services in regional / remote communities may be part of a deliberate policy to move a population.
Many suspect governments make considerable effort to avoid providing details, which reinforces conspiracy theories.
Frequently there are other reasons, like late submissions, essential details missing.
Like most assumptions, to actually prove them requires far more detail, which requires more open governments.

Racism is about dividing people into separate groups, identifying them as different due ancestry, social behavior, innate capacities, and other, frequently using these to exclude or include them for “special treatment” whether this by advantage or disadvantage, also to rank then as inferior or superior.
The term “racial discrimination” means any distinction, exclusion, restriction, or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.
The Commonwealth continues to seriously infect the Northern Territory with its racism.


Jacinta Price spits dummy
Jacinta, your response to Erwin Chlanda of Alice Springs News is a great disappointment.
I have know Erwin Chlanda over 40 years, his work and commitment as a journalist is exceptional.
Apologise with grace, or shame yourself further.
IMHO Erwin Chlanda is well overdue for recognition by the NPC.


Horses starve, rotting carcasses near homes
Around Australia corporate or natural persons as land owners, managers or others are prosecuted, found negligent and penalties are applied.
Other than racial prejudice, why are these relevant corporate land-owners (Land Trusts), their relevant corporate property managers (Land Councils), their relevant executive management boards, or other relevant individuals not prosecuted?
Frequently applied is the legal principle that ignorance of the law is no excuse.


News cycle: It’s all over in a day
None may claim surprise, the Commonwealth long conducting “racial profiling” since it took over the Northern Territory from South Australia.

Commonwealth promotion of “racial profiling” and apartheid is easier to recognize in the NT.

Commonwealth cares little for equal legal rights and equal legal responsibility which our Constitution offers all Australians.

Puzzle is why so many content to ignore denial of their equal rights, thus opportunity, for a few silver coins…

As Pastor Martin Niemöller explains it:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.


Public may pay for government fake news: Opposition
The Chief Minister Michael Gunner and his government adopting principles of Dr Goebbels [Adolf Hitler’s propaganda minister – ED]:
“If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it. The lie can be maintained only for such time as the State can shield the people from the political, economic and/or military consequences of the lie. It thus becomes vitally important for the State to use all of its powers to repress dissent, for the truth is the mortal enemy of the lie, and thus by extension, the truth is the greatest enemy of the State.”

Every MLA is part of the NT Government, their is role to draw public attention to serious failings and disgraces.
