[WGAR-news] 12 Dec 07: NT Intervention WGAR: Working Group for Aboriginal Rights (Australia)

12 DEC 2007: NORTHERN TERRITORY INTERVENTION

MEDIA RELEASES:

  • Scoop: Friends Of The Earth: Human Rights: Self Determination Not Intervention 10 Dec 07: "With the intervention there's been changes to every law; land rights law, the racial discrimination act, the social security act. ... Now the incoming Rudd government needs to get serious about restoring our rights and removing the Intervention legislation." Barbara Shaw, a town camp resident in Alice Springs
  • NACCHO: Mr Rudd today is the day to sign 10 Dec 07: "We still have not had a clear message on what this government is going to do about the Northern Territory emergency intervention which was and is an assault on our human rights if there ever was one. We continue to hear statements such as 'we need to let it continue for some time to see if it is working'. Sorry this has taken away our rights. Even if it 'works' at some level it is still unacceptable to the Aboriginal people of the Northern Territory and must be rejected in its entirety." Dr Mick Adams Chairperson of the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (NACCHO)
  • Sydney Indymedia: WGAR urges PM to place a Moratorium on NT Intervention
  • 7 Dec 07: "In a letter to the PM and Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, the Working Group for Aboriginal Rights (WGAR) strongly recommends that the Federal government takes immediate steps to undo the harm of the NT Intervention which is negatively impacting on the lives of Aboriginal people in the NT."
OPINION:
