Comment on The plan to undermine the Land Rights Act by Paul Parker.

Re: Ian Viner.
Commonwealth racism strangles the communities, preventing them from developing themselves.
Commonwealth obstructs “Traditional Owners” and others from obtaining reasonable leases for small areas of land in these communities to enable development.
Mr Viner IMHO you deliberately mislead Australians suggesting a few thousand quarter acre blocks required for developments in these communities, will result in loss of hundreds of thousands of square kilometres of land which these Commonwealth created Land Trusts own.
Mr Viner, you appear still NOT prepared to address issues and difficulties arising.
Commonwealth prevents these Commonwealth created corporate cowboys from being held accountable, while these Commonwealth created corporate cowboys refuse to manage their lands, refuse to maintain housing, refuse to provide their tenants with reasonable tenancy leases.
These Commonwealth corporate cowboys refuse to provide otherwise basic services provided by other landlords, they act as irresponsible landlords, but you ignore these issues.
Mr Viner, you and Commonwealth support these corporate entities ordering racial segregation of these communities.
You and Commonwealth support these corporate entities ordering racial segregation of families, even segregation of “Traditional Owners” from their families.
You support denial to people living upon these lands of their rights as Australians.
You support denial to people living upon these lands of their opportunities as Australians to do things to help themselves.
Rather than addressing fellow Australians as fellow Australians, you support and promote the use of racial tags.
Central to your approach is qualification of our rights as Australians using racial tags.
Such was and remains racist behaviour.
Such racist behaviour caused the ongoing disadvantage, such racist behaviour is NOT part of the solution.
Commonwealth considers seeking voters endorsement for their imposing apartheid upon Australians.
The Commonwealth supports, promotes and practices segregation of Australian families using racial measurements.
Australians at Federation and again in 1967 voted to ensure NO segregation, NO racial tagging to qualify our rights or responsibilities as Australians.

Expect little public difference if we had 100% of the world’s nuclear materials.
Many regard the main issue to consider with nuclear energy is nuclear waste, including nuclear side-products.
Most IMHO do not accept these as safe, nor reliable, nor affordable.
Until clearer explanations, more details, greater education, concerning nuclear wastes and side-products are available, particularly these with long-term-lives, expect little change in public sentiment.
Public concern grows with political decision-makers dumbing down the public, exhibiting little interest in public involvement or consideration.

Racism is about dividing people into separate groups, identifying them as different due ancestry, social behavior, innate capacities, and other, frequently using these to exclude or include them for “special treatment” whether this by advantage or disadvantage, also to rank then as inferior or superior.
The term “racial discrimination” means any distinction, exclusion, restriction, or preference based on race, colour, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life.
The Commonwealth continues to seriously infect the Northern Territory with its racism.

Jacinta Price spits dummy
Jacinta, your response to Erwin Chlanda of Alice Springs News is a great disappointment.
I have know Erwin Chlanda over 40 years, his work and commitment as a journalist is exceptional.
Apologise with grace, or shame yourself further.
IMHO Erwin Chlanda is well overdue for recognition by the NPC.

Horses starve, rotting carcasses near homes
Around Australia corporate or natural persons as land owners, managers or others are prosecuted, found negligent and penalties are applied.
Other than racial prejudice, why are these relevant corporate land-owners (Land Trusts), their relevant corporate property managers (Land Councils), their relevant executive management boards, or other relevant individuals not prosecuted?
Frequently applied is the legal principle that ignorance of the law is no excuse.

News cycle: It’s all over in a day
None may claim surprise, the Commonwealth long conducting “racial profiling” since it took over the Northern Territory from South Australia.

Commonwealth promotion of “racial profiling” and apartheid is easier to recognize in the NT.

Commonwealth cares little for equal legal rights and equal legal responsibility which our Constitution offers all Australians.

Puzzle is why so many content to ignore denial of their equal rights, thus opportunity, for a few silver coins…

As Pastor Martin Niemöller explains it:

First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me.
