    Reading your testimonies sends a chill into my heart and causes great concern for my community of Palm Island in Qld. The Qld goverment has just put on our council to sign the 40 year lease or no housing for the island people. They signed last Friday 30th April 2010. We stand with you all in the NT and especially Alice Springs… we will work towards challenging the governement and stand in solidarity with you. God be with you all.

    This is not ‘left’ or ‘right’; its ‘heart’ and ‘soul’-the core of our well being as a society. the intervention is wrong!! in name, in spin , in outcome. yet another underfunded racist act by whitefellas (my mob) and I am so so sad and ashamed. I am going to do something and I am at your service to do so.
    Luv Jilbpee (white haired old guy).

    Shameful. Our basic rights being trampled on again all for the sake of what exactly? This is atrocious and ATSI people around Australia need to stand together as one to fight against the one common disease, government.

      Shameful it is. And basic rights trampled? No doubt about that. But this affects all Australians and we should all stand together to overturn this abomination. I for one stand with you and will do what I can to assist.

    Again it is just disgusting.Having studied at Uni SA Unaiapon I feel it is now time I actually put some work into exploding the financial myths surrounding funding for Indigenous people/ communities and individuals. It is simply reprehensible that the lack of payment is then spun into a package to fix it all by claiming the recipients are irresponsible! my thrust and early research confirms that systematically funding has been reduced on a per head of population to about 40% of funding to the main streamin each and every area from education to health! it is then promoted in big grab announcements of $x million spent here an $YY million there. Each and every project and community is under funded and doomed to fail!
