Bill to pressure Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory

Published: August 8, 2006, Author: AngelSupport

Right now the Australian government wants to pass a Bill to pressure Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory into giving up their land for the next century, in exchange for securing basic services (such as housing and schools).

Unlike the first NT Land Rights Act, which was an iconic piece of legislation passed with broad consensus and bipartisan support, this Bill in its current form is opposed by all Opposition parties, and lacks the support of indigenous peoples themselves. Act now and call upon the Australian Senate to delay the vote on land rights to allow time for proper consideration.
