Comment on Indigenous marathon – the chosen few by Paul Parker.

Artists earning millions do not do this tax free, same for those on Centrelink benefits.
The Centrelink Fraud Tip-off Line is still 13 1524.
The Commonwealth needs to clarify responsibilities, not hide them in forests of legislation, clauses and sub-clauses, and worst of all, hidden elsewhere in exemptions, which most of us struggle to make sense of.

Re: Jason Posted January 8, 2016 at 12:50 pm
Whether any high income earners remain dependent on Centrelink, or without Centrelink income deductions, is a matter Centrelink needs be examined over.
Many artists are beneficiaries of the corporate Land Trusts, these Land Trusts were long term allowed to ignore their responsibilities as landlords.
Commonwealth exempts these Land Trusts from being held accountable.
Commonwealth obstructs attempts to resolve issues.
Commonwealth obstructs legal representation – courts require to progress towards judicial resolution of these issues.
Commonwealth protects these Trusts, their management, their agents and their employees from being held accountable in court.
This denial of judicial relief is part of the Commonwealth’s active support and promotion of apartheid.
Families are also victims of this apartheid, this segregation.
Many of the artists do have housing constructed using public funds on land they own through their Land Trusts. All this is created by the Commonwealth to promote apartheid.
Commonwealth is principal source of funds to construct housing, and other facilities, on lands owned by these ALR(NT) Land Trusts.
Commonwealth exempts these Land Trusts landlords from the requirement to issue reasonable tenancy leases.
Do banks lend money without security?
Why does Commonwealth NOT, and so guarantee such generous funds to all who do struggle, using their own savings, purchase a block of land, so they also can afford to build a house?
Why does NT Government not provide such generous financing?
Re education: Neither parents, nor public, nor media, find it easy to review schooling in these communities, other than NAPLAN which provides some reports.
So Yirara College management dances to tunes played by NT and Commonwealth, mostly to hide and protect Ministers.
Many youths, many adults, are distressed to discover feeling they are doing well. It is inadequate when tested whether in schools, NAPLAN tests, job interviews, arrested or in prison.
Suicide is far to common a reaction when they discover reality.
In the past four decades Mal Brough was the only Minister who seriously started to address structural causes of these problems.

‘Safe nuclear power known since 2009’
Australians mostly accept the existence of some nuclear benefits but they maintain opposition to wider nuclear development.
This means Australians may support replacement of our ageing Lucas Heights facility, when know where it will be.
Nuclear participants need STOP promoting activities wider than our existing Lucas Heights if it is to be replaced.
Replacement of our Lucas Heights facility will ensure our needs for various nuclear products will continue to be provided within Australia.
Replacement of our Lucas Heights facility enables continued production, training, and research with public education.
Australians involved in public discussions of other plans then may feel better prepared to discuss alternative facilities.
The Australian public needs to approve or reject other facilities in our wider community.

Warlpiri don’t want Zachary Rolfe murder trial to be in Darwin
More on the Rolfe Murder trial: “In the Northern Territory, persons charged with serious offences are tried by a Judge and jury in the Supreme Court. This ensures every person accused of a serious crime receives a fair trial, free from government or political influence.”
This is worth reading to understand the process.
In different state/territories the rules may permit Defendants to choose they be tried before a Judge only.

Street kids: What cops can do
Australians sought Federation to ensure all Australians shared same legal rights with same legal responsibilities.
Since Federation our Commonwealth government has ignored, enticed, persuaded, encouraged, or justified its own government actions or failures to act by abusively using the term “Aboriginal” claiming that was sufficient justification for the Commonwealth’s actions and inactions.
The Commonwealth refuses to accept ALL Australians hold equal legal rights with equal legal responsibilities.
Australian voters in the 1967 Referendum re-stated their Federation intention that ALL Australians share the same legal rights and legal responsibilities without qualification using racial identification.
We need to extinguish ALL Australian governments’ claims that racism upon Australians is lawful.
Racism is no justification for treating Australians, particularly children, differently.

Seeking equality as Indigenous distrust of government peaks
The cited “limitation of democracy” and “muffled voices” was ended when Neville Bonner was appointed To the Senate in 1971.
Consider his election in his own right by popular vote in 1972, 1974, 1975 and 1980.
Since Neville Bonner broke the ice, others have been elected.
Australians support equality of legal rights and legal responsibilities as Australians.
Australian voters’ silence is towards in-equality.
The Uluru Statement promotes in-equality, not equality.

Yuendumu murder charge update
Re: Psuedo Guru Posted November 15, 2019 at 8:15 am “Anarchy rules in Alice Springs.”
I doubt anarchy rules in Alice Springs.
These problems are not Alice Springs problems, they are Australian problems.
The problems relate to “racial tag” support from racists.
We need to end the Commonwealth’s ongoing promoting, enforcing, defending its wedging of Australians using “racial tags” to diminish our rights as Australians.
The Commonwealth needs to act for Australians in need of basic services, not racial wedging.
While “racial tag” wedging continues then yes, the racists are winning.
