Indigenous protest mooted for 2009.

By poptop - 18 December 2008 100

Green Left is reporting an Indigenous protest at Parly House for the first sitting day – 3 February 2009.

Calls to stop the NT intervention, maintain bilingual education and fulfill the election promise of ratifying the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous People have not been resolved.

Looks like the warm fuzzy feelings from the apology are wearing a little thin.

What’s Your opinion?

Sure, they have had a rough trot in the past, I’m sure most people agree, but I also think Australia has done a lot to help the Aboriginal people in recent years. The NT intervention is one of them. Unfortunately, a lot of Aboriginal people fail too see this.

It just amazes me that ‘Australians’ still can’t see why indigenous people might be just a little upset at the moment. ‘Sorry’ Day aside, their situation is a bad as ever.

Maybe not as bad as ever, but I agree in spirit. They have not only the right to protest but also plenty of reasons.

Waste of time anyway – Kevin747 will probably be overseas again discussing how to make the perfect pavlova with the UN on Feb 3rd.

Where’d that come from sepi? I don’t stand for sexism either I’m afraid.

Wheels go roll about. People go walk about.

It would be a bunch of nameless white yobs thinking they are wrecking a tent embassy car that stole the wheels.

johnboy? I suspect you don’t want to put up with such blatantly racist comments.

If you laughed at that you are a bad person. I’m going to hell.

I dunno – if election promises haven’t eventuated I think a bit of a protest is fair enough.
