The fight for Aboriginal rights in NT

Monday, September 27, 2010 - 18:30

Discussion and analysis from Alice Springs-based Aboriginal Rights activists. Earthwise, 315 Bagot Drive, Subiaco.

MORE INFO: The Northern Territory Intervention, the NT government’s policy of withdrawing resources from Aboriginal homelands and bans on education in Aboriginal languages all form part of a savage assimilation agenda in the NT. Racist legislation is fueling apartheid style conditions in urban centres like Alice Springs. An explosion in uranium exploration and the push for an NT nuclear waste dump are also increasing pressure on communities.

These attacks are being met with strong resistance from a growing protest movement. And in the recent federal election, anti-Intervention Greens candidates outpolled both Labor and Liberal across Central Australia. Come along, participate in discussion and hear analysis and updates from Aboriginal rights activists based in Alice Springs.
