Alice Springs

So I have been Travelling in the NT for a couple of days now. Anyways, thought it might be a good opotunity to talk about howards indigeneous plan. Basically it is flawed on different levels. Firstly, different communities require different specific strategies. Secondly, we have a lack of Police in Melbourne, where will the extra police come from? And it would cost soo much, I would expect double pay to work in a remote community. And thirdly, would it work? I just think it will be insulting to some Indigenous people to have there lives policed more than other Australians.

but if the objective is to obtain resources from a weak government, then maybe they're doing the right thing.

i don't beleive JH is this benevolent, nor stupid, and this intervention is tainted by the stench of mining companies

And thirdly, would it work? I just think it will be insulting to some Indigenous people to have there lives policed more than other Australians.

i don't think this has a chance of working. it is being treated by the powers that be as a military intervention, but this is a humanitarian problem. it's going to take generations for to resolve this.

i don't think JH and MBrough (want to)understand this yet.
