Comment on Stop Easter footy carnival in Alice: Liddle by Christine Holding.

The impact of football carnivals along with other types of events is negative in so many ways.
The behaviour in Alice has been dreadful, but it also impacts on things like attendance at work, children not going to school and overcrowded housing creating social difficulties.
Community people coming into town and for a variety of reasons unable / unwilling to return immediately after the event. It is quite sad to see how this affects local communities.

It also seems that lots of issues are not addressed at all until there is a high profile expose occurs from media that makes it an issue – why is that?

Prof Gerritsen in Alison Anderson’s cheer squad: Bess Price’s husband after the coup
Bess seems to be the quiet achiever, I have a lot of respect for her.
Head down and just getting on with things. Indigenous issues are a hard gig for anyone, but perhaps particularly difficult for Bess in those times when other Indigenous public figures are attempting to undermine or destroy any gains that can be achieved.
