Comment on Indigenous business shows way to camel profits by Phil Walcott.

What a great good news story! A terrific venture bound by connection to culture. It’s always about relationships … how we grow them and how we respect them.
Let’s see this industry thrive for all the right reasons. Building social capacity in tandem with fiscal sensibility will always be a winner.

Indigenous business shows way to camel profits
@ Once was Conservative. Great to see you acknowledge the tremendous work continually being achieved through the dedicated, hard work of Jimmy Cocking and his team at ALEC.
I made the decision over 12 months ago to make a monthly donation (albeit a small one) to the organisation when they had their funding so ruthlessly cut by the incumbent NT government.
ALEC presents a perceived threat (as it should) to the mistruths and collusion perpetrated by the oil and gas industries in cohort with the NTG.
Trying to de-fund them out of existence can’t work whilst ever there are community member sponsors. An intelligent and passionate young leader, Jimmy achieves so much at the Territory and national environmental stages. He and his team are to be congratulated for so much of the work they do often on a pro-bono basis.
Perhaps, you too might consider becoming a Desert Defender sponsor? All donations are tax deductible.

Prediction: If Jacinta is not successful in winning Lingiari in four weeks and Josh Burgoyne doesn’t win the second Senate seat (which won’t happen because the Senate roles are ‘fixed’ at one CLP: one NTALP), they’ll both contest the August 2020 NT Legislative Assembly in Braitling (Jacinta) and Araluen (Josh).

First Aboriginal doctor: Gordon Briscoe AO, BA (Hist), MA, PhD
A terrific read … great acknowledgement of a man who looks like having significantly contributed to many generations of Aboriginal people, both locally and around the country.
Always good to learn of such accomplishments from those of us who had a difficult beginning.
Happily shared on some social media. Thanks for being, Gordon.
