Comment on Liddle resigns as chairman of Lhere Artepe by Perrurle.

It’s always entertaining to see your messages ‘Kemarre’. I love how you talk about having “cultural PHDs,” in effect comparing yourself to the old people who looked after this apmere in the proper sense before white people came to central Australia. To this I may say, the comparison is laughable. The fact is that without someone like Michael, or other leaders with political and cultural know-how, people like you will run an organisation like Lhere Artepe into the ground because of your petty games and self destructive ways.

Kemarre, you have changed the goal posts again. Read the headline to this article. You’re focus on language now and inability to be answerable has left a stench of desperation on this conversation. Do you plan on being accountable or do you take pleasure in portraying yourself so foolishly? I’ll happily wrap this up, but just a message to the wide audience of Arrernte people and others reading this. Read the entire conversation. People like Kemarre are a sad reflection of the negativity that exists in our community, and are a true reflection of where Arrernte people are at today. If we want Lhere Artepe to be a prominent, respected organisation in Alice, these “types” need to step aside. It shows us the kinda of crap a chairman has to deal with trying to get the organisation back on its feet.
Vote yourself off the island Kemarre, hate will rot your guts 😉
Game, set, match Perrurle.

Arrangkwe Arrernte angkeme! We don’t need to write in Arrernte ‘Kemarre’ because as you and I know, not many people can read our language and I’d like to show everyone how foolish you’re continually being in your posts!
You know everything? So you’re a tracker, and can navigate at night through traditional astrology (ill translate astrology if you need?).
You would compare your knowledge to the ingkatas of the Arrernte people from the 1870s? If you know everything about land and stories then how come your not running Lhere Artepe? It needs a good leader at the moment, the position is vacant!
I don’t come on here talking about my cultural knowledge as I believe truly wise people never stop learning … and as others have tried to tell you previously, this is not the forum. Your comment in Arrernte saying you talk Arrernte while I don’t bother to learn, or basically that I know nothing shows again how off track you are.
So give us a straight answer, how does your ranting and raving on this site accusing every person (not just me) of having no knowledge and growing up “white” justifying your means? What are you hoping to gain? You have continuously accused everyone who has a problem with your comments of the same things “growing up in town, not having anything to do with full blood people” etc.
Can you give the Arrernte people who read this some clarity on what Lhere Artepe needs going into 2013 and beyond? How are we going to protect culture, have our language spoken for generations to come, and ensure the health and well being of our kids? How will Lhere Artepe become the major stakeholder it should be in this town? How will we protect our Ameke-meke sites?
Ill tell you how we will not. By having bitter, worthless, online fueds with people such as yourself who have no interest in progress, but would rather see us fight and argue with each other. Thank you for blessing us with more of your mindless brain spasms.
Kale mwerre.

Aha! Well let me know if you need a copy of “A Changing Race” (not “the”). That documentary should make things very clear to you. If you need “research” then perhaps big noting your cultural know-how on here is contradictory? Good luck though!! 😉

Cattlemen ask: Where’s our drought aid?
All evidence points to animal agriculture as having a direct influence on increasing drought conditions.
Cattle require huge amounts of water to keep alive and noxious weeds (buffel) to feed.
What exactly are we doing running huge numbers of cattle in the desert?
Most stations are now monocultures of buffel grass or bulldust and eliminate other potential economic activity because of the sheer size of these stations.

Cattlemen ask: Where’s our drought aid?
Drought aid: reduce stock numbers.
Q for Mr Manicaros: How many litres of water per beast, per year?

Now that the Rock can’t be climbed, visiting it will cost more
Tourists have been dropping off for years.
It costs a fortune to get here, hotels charge like wounded bulls and are fit with late 70s decor, WiFi connectivity is dodgy AND you have to pay for it, there are no pools with day parties raging with dance music and cheap booze (see Bali), our national parks are full of cattle and buffel grass that breed up the fly-swarms, lack of tourism products coupled with often poor customer service in retail, and social issues and safety act as a deterrent.
Is the closure of The Rock climb or gate entry price hikes really causal to our tourism woes? In the big scheme of things, likely not.

Council cemetery: Seven years of planning, no conclusive result
Sad to see the state of the Memorial Ave Cemetery. Un-kept and decrepit, no shade or space for people to hide from the sun… Something needs to be done.
Can’t the town council at least manage the weeds and prickles so one can walk through without getting a 4 inch burr through their shoe?

How hard is it to keep cattle out of a small conservation reserve?
Parks and Wildlife are merely concerned about Tourism numbers, economics, encouraging small tourism enterprise, cleaning bbq’s etc yet they present visitors with Parks that are overrun with cattle, buffel grass and noxious weeds, destroyed by wild fire and feral and invasive species… What tourist or day to day punter from Alice wants to see parks with no conservation values, nor activities taking place?
“Hey tourists, come check out our beautiful reserves, full of the Territories’ own 3 meter high buffel grass clusters and feral cats the size of adult lions!”
