Voices of reason call for immediate end  to NT Indigenous Intervention

” … Several outspoken Elders,  including Utopia’s Rosalie Kunoth-Monks  and speakers from the Yolgnu Nations Assembly  will launch the statement of support in Melbourne.

“They say the slow strangulation of services to the smaller homelands and the suffocating government control of almost all aspects of community life  is a creeping extinction for these Aboriginal people. …

“The group statement concludes:

“We call on the Australian Government to heed the call of Northern Territory Elders  for an immediate end to the racism and discrimination of the Intervention policies which are an ongoing stain on the Australian nation.

“It is time that the Australian Governments respect and negotiate with remote living Indigenous people in good faith, demonstrate proper duty of care to them and allow all First Nations of Australia the right to self-determination.”
