INTERVENTION/ STRONGER FUTURES & ‘CONCERNED AUSTRALIANS’
Discriminatory legislation was pushed through the parliament on June 29th 2012. Do you know what the legislation means? Can you accept the discriminations and restrictions placed on Indigenous Territorians and others? Or perhaps, the question should be: How much do you know about the legislation and its impacts on people? ‘cA’ are a group who came together following the suspension of the Racial Discrimination Act (RDA) in the Northern Territory in 2007. Though this Act was
reinstated on the last day of 2010 unjust & discriminatory legislation continues to be passed!
The Aust. Catholic Bishops Conference, the ACSJC, parish justice groups and leading human rights groups and many others groups have spoken out strongly against this new legislation. ‘cA’ provides in the main opportunities for the voices of Aboriginal peoples of the N.T. to express their views.
