Comment on MLA Bess Price on ‘the killing of our women, abuse of our kids’ by Paul Parker.

I support Alice Springs News enabling anonymity of contributors to discussion, where anonymous is to other readers.
I accept legal reasons for good media like Alice Springs News Online being able to identify their contributors prior to publication, with credit for their ongoing efforts to maintain all our contributors’ privacy.
I acknowledge many still each day suffer consequences from vicious revenge and abuse of authority, arising from being identified, whether correctly or incorrectly, for promoting equality, from defending those not able to defend themselves, from providing evidence, from challenging barriers within our status quo, then seeking egalitarian opportunities for all.
Darkness remains preference of those who promote ignorance and bigotry, who obstruct others’ ability to learn, clear visible are the consequences with created problems, delayed improvements, so many clearly continue to suffer.

MLA Bess Price on ‘the killing of our women, abuse of our kids’
Mal Brough and Jenny Macklin applied Commonwealth racist policy theories through the “The Intervention” experiments to resolve social and legal problems arising from earlier Commonwealth racist policy experiments.
Problems created by racism will not be resolved by continued racism.
Apartheid was not resolved by apartheid policy, rather by ending apartheid policy.
Resolving these problems requires Commonwealth to end its purported claim of legal right to implement racist policy upon Australians.
Unfortunately our Commonwealth keeps purporting needs for it to maintain racist policies.
Treating everyone as fellow Australians, sharing the same rights and same responsibilities in accordance with our Constitution is the only solution.
The Commonwealth’s ongoing qualification of all our rights and responsibilities by racial testing maintains the problems.
Exclusion of refugee landings on mainland Australia from being considered as arrivals in Australia for immigration purposes is similarly futile.

MLA Bess Price on ‘the killing of our women, abuse of our kids’
When human rights clash with racial / religious / other-rights, only defend human rights, or your support is for bigotry.

Boy from The Centre to address UN Human Rights Council
Australia’s governments originally contributed, promoted, and supported the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Article 2
Everyone is entitled to all the rights and freedoms set forth in this declaration, without distinction of any kind, such as race, colour, sex, language, religion, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status.
Furthermore, no distinction shall be made on the basis of the political, jurisdictional or international status of the country or territory to which a person belongs, whether it be independent, trust, non-self-governing or under any other limitation of sovereignty.
All Australians need their governments to constantly demonstrate their commitments to the clear meanings and purposes set out in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
