    Thanks Barbara and IRAG I was at the meeting at the town hall, I appreceated it.

    I from Vic. so it was good to get first hand opinions about the issue. We have to rely on the media which is tricky.

    A real blessing to visit this site, listen to the various speakers on the intervention. I visited this site the day before A Day 2010. I was feeling at a loss, frustrated at the goverments treatment of Indigenous people, in particular with the intervention.

    I am off work sick feeling sick with my depression with the upcoming day tomorrow and at work today with their australia day lunch.

    Thank you to each and everyone who attended the rallies and forums, the speakers and the unions for their support. Bless each and everyone of these people. My visit to this site has lifted my spirits 100%. Together we are stronger. Please keep up the precious and most important work you all do.

    Yours in unity
