Comment on Dylan Voller’s mistreatment started in Alice Springs by Phil Walcott.

@ Evelyne: Thanks for the reminder that Restorative Justice is a positive conduit aiming for repairing the harm rather than punishing the person.
This model has been used in some schools and juvenile justice system in Alice Springs very effectively over time. I know because I introduced it into the schools in which I worked.
It should be adopted across all schools and within the community justice systems for younger people and adults.
The models are out there; no need to re-invent any wheel.
Go ahead … just do it!

Jacinta Price: 4 year commitment lasted 18 months
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.

Pretty obvious this is a blatant political move by the Feds. They back their own team in SA to the detriment of the opposition team in the NT.

Just throwing a conversation starter into the mix, Sharpie.
