Comment on Pilger’s polemic fails Australia and Aborigines by Sonja Olsen.

Obviously in a two hour documentary, it is impossible to cover every aspect of a very complex situation. However, I think Pilger makes some very important points about ongoing issues that haven’t changed. Let’s start with the ignorance of a large percentage of the Australian general public. What I want to know is what do Aboriginal people need from the wider community both immediately and long term in relation to shelter, infrastructure, ongoing support, health and well being, employment opportunities, historical recognition, public awareness etc, ect.
I don’t think we should be relying on the government. This is a whole community issue and needs to be led by Aboriginal people. I don’t know what is appropriate housing etc for them. I want to hear from the Aboriginal people themselves!
