Stop the NT intervention


SYDNEY — Fifty people gathered outside federal government offices on November 26 to protest the Northern Territory intervention against Aboriginal communities.

Larissa Behrendt, director of Jumbunna Research, denounced the intervention and called on the government to restore the Racial Discrimination Act in relation to the NT's Indigenous people. Eva Cox, leading feminist and researcher, slammed the federal government's plan to extend income management to all welfare recipients, rather than abolishing it for NT Aboriginal communities.

The rally was organised by the Stop the Intervention Collective.
