#SOSBLAKAUSTRALIA: Stop the Forced Closure of Aboriginal Communities in Australia

text-aboriginal-rights#SOSBLAKAUSTRALIA 5th Global Call to action announced: 
Stop the Forced Closure of Aboriginal Communities in Australia
16 Sep 15: “With the recent change of leadership in the  current LNP government and last week’s announcement of  eight Indigenous individuals confirmed to determine the fate of 274 Aboriginal Communities in Western Australia  alongside what the Government claims to be a  ‘consultative process’, a new date has been set for the  5th Global Call to Action – Friday 27th November 2015.

… #SOSBLAKAUSTRALIA grew out of necessity in the response  to the threatened forced closure of Aboriginal communities.  Our extended reach is in excess of 12 million people and our  direct reach is close to 75,000. Our goal goes well beyond  any ‘consultation’. Regardless of who is prime minister, we
are committed to keeping our communities on their homelands and we have been consulting among our own people to develop sustainable and viable models for communities, outstations and seasonal campsites.

To support this work, we are steadily galvanising support from NGOs, unions, the legal fraternity and public figures  and have built a skills database with submissions from thousands of everyday people worldwide, who care as much as  we do about our Aboriginal culture and human rights.

#SOSBLAKAUSTRALIA itself will be scaled up to increase its  capacity, whilst supporting a cultural revolution, political platform and fundraising campaign.

  1. Government LAND GRAB says it all.

    Maybe the 274 Aboriginal Communities should grab Sidney and/or some other big Cities and kick all the residents out…
