For goodness sakes – you mob are going to court …

Comment on Jurrah Trial, Day 3: Witness lied to police “under pressure” by Fed up with this.

For goodness sakes – you mob are going to court for fighting and wanting to kill each other and there you go again, this time in front of the court house! Have you no respect for the law at all or for the people who have to witness this crap all the time. Go back to your own country and do this, don’t come to my home town and put all of us “blackfellas” in the same category as you mob. No wonder the “whitbellas” are leaving Alice in droves … they are even more sick of you mob! Go Home!

Anzac precinct art gallery: Native title issues unresolved
Oh look, for goodness sake, can we not now get into this?
As long as the “right” Aboriginal people are consulted can we leave it at that before it becomes about naming family groups?
Can’t we do it for all Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people who live in Alice?!

Flag on the Hill: When No became Yes
Hey Scotty, pull your head in mate! I am one of those 25,000 Arrente people in Alice Springs. Who do you think you are putting us all in one bucket, labelling us all the same!
My family and I have worked all our lives in this town, our town.
We educated our children, teach them respect and our kids don’t walk the streets at night vandalising property, bashing innocent people etc.
“WE” are not all sitting at the front of Centrelink, “out bush doing nothing” or even incarcerated, a lot of us work for our money.
How do you think we feel with what’s going on in our town, we feel exactly like everyone else!
This is our home! If you don’t like what’s happening here go back to your home!

Gallery: Gunner sticks with ANZAC Oval
Why even have a consultation process, Mr Gunner, if your just gonna put the gallery where you want it!! You could have saved a lot of money on this so called consultation process and just said that’s where YOU want it to go in the first place!
You won’t be getting my vote in the next election!

24/7 youth centre: bridge between us and them?
In response to James T Smerk: “People with something to say need to get involved – don’t wait for a personal invite to rock up on your door. I’m tired of hearing about people not being consulted when there are public forums all over the place.”
Please give some respect to Aunty Doreen. While Im sure she wasnt’ waiting for a “personal invitation” why couldn’t someone give her a call.
I’m pretty sure Aunty Doreen wouldn’t have access to the internet and read Alice Springs News Online or other forms of social media so how was she going to hear about this meeting?
A simple phone call to her advising her of the meeting would have been easy and then she could have passed it on to the other “grandmothers” and other people by word of mouth – simple. I think you would have had a lot more “interested Aboriginal people” at the meeting if this happened. Just saying!

Police clash with protestors
Re “no to Police violence”.
How do you know that their name tags where not on them at the start of the protest?
Any thought that their name tags quite possibly got ripped off them during the “scuffle”.
How do you know it was a “deliberate attempt by them to escape accountability?
Why didn’t you go up to the police officers and ask them their name/s if you were that concerned that they didn’t have their name tag on?!
