Almost six years since the Royal Commission into the Detention and Protection of Children in the Northern Territory delivered its findings, the Don Dale Youth Detention Centre is still open. Stephen W Enciso reports.
Darwin's Don Dale Youth Detention Centre
The NT government is committed to keep incarcerating children in Don Dale Youth Detention Centre until at least “late 2023”, reports Stephen W Enciso.
February 14 marks 18 years since young Kamilaroi man TJ Hickey died after being chased by police. No one has been charged; his family is yet to receive any justice, writes Isaac Nellist.
Activists are continuing to pressure the NT government to close Don Dale Youth Detention Centre, writes Stephen W Enciso.
First Nations organisations have strongly criticised the NT government’s proposals to get “tough” on young people who re-offend, saying it will drive more Aboriginal children into prison, writes Pip Hinman.
