Comment on Let’s have an Australia Day when we are ready for it by Kathy.

Australia Day to me is the first landing of the Britsh setting foot on to Australian land.
A coming together of all people of Australia to celebrate how far we all have come, not a conquering of other people.
It is about time we all stopped living in the past and moved on.
Looking back will never change the past, it’s what we do in the future that matters.
Not blaming and not being responsible for that past, separates and decides our nation.

CLP would build gallery at Desert Park, not Anzac precinct
Let’s hope the Government of the day listens to the people of Alice Springs and the Aboriginal people of this area and get it sorted.
All big projects in other towns around Australia are on the outskirts of town. Thinking of the future growth of the town and of course the parking problems already in town.


Standoff over Anzac Oval for gallery crescendoes
I find it interesting that the government does not want to listen to the people of Alice Springs.
An art gallery will not solve our problem in Alice Springs as far as tourism is concerned, and I have asked many guests, did you come up here to see the culture and most said no.
The Desert Park would be the ideal pace to have a gallery or add to the Araluen art gallery.
How many do we need in town?
Will the local tribes want the other tribes’ art in their town?
They argue and fight when they live in the same town, so how is this going to help their tribal relations.


COVID: Trouble in the bush
I agree with a lot of the above.
When is the Australian Government going to stand up and say WE ARE ALL AUSTRALIAN and we should be all treated the same on the same level.
No more Aboriginal this, Aboriginal that.
If people want to live on cattle stations, communities, town or in cities, we should be given all the same legal, social and financial rights, not this for some and this for others.


A touch of light: shield shrimps
I would be more concerned about the flies. They invade your face, moisture and then move on to the next person. Good transmitters of the virus.


NT may face total COVID-19 lockdown
Why not restrict the members of the communities from leaving and this will help prevent the spread of the virus to the communities.
Supplies can be sent out and internet can provide necessary payments as it does to everyone else.
