Comment on The facts the Amnesty fact finder didn’t find by Confused Observer.

There are more questions than answers in all of these comments. It is always easier to focus on the gaps – but what about the movement forward that is occurring?
No one mentioned the work that is being done by responsible members of the communities to build innovative sustainable housing, maintain Centrelink contact, get their reluctant offspring to school through quiet determination and maintain an independent lifestyle that maintains survival in remote Australian deserts.
These series of comments belie the need for respect for difference and underlying judgementalism and does not improve the communities’ work. Are we ready to recognise the depth and complexity of needs that schools, health, government agencies and remote university campuses are attempting to meet? Or would the corresponding funding needed scare us too much?
