Land Rights News, Northern Edition July 2017 Edition

The third issue of Land Rights News (Northern Edition) for 2017 features the 10-year anniversary of the Northern Territory Emergency Response (the “Intervention”).

Articles by Senator Pat Dodson and Jon Altman examine the consequences of the of the Intervention and its sudden imposition on NT Aboriginal communities.

Thalia Anthony in her article "NTER took the children away: detention, state protection and torture since the Intervention" writes:  "Almost ten years after the Northern Territory Intervention was rolled out, the Federal Government was made aware of Aboriginal child abuse. It’s not the kind that ostensibly precipitated the Intervention. It is more a symptom of the Intervention”.

Brian Stacey worked in the Northern Territory from 2004 to 2009 as the Commonwealth’s senior officer responsible for Indigenous Affairs. He gives an “insider’s” account of the the Intervention.

John B Lawrence, in his article "Australia's Morality Play 2017", reflects on who knew what about the events that precipitated the Royal Commission into the Protection and Detention of Children in the NT.

The LRN editor in the article, "DON DALE: How the state brutalised a 14-year-old boy", tells the story of how a 14-year-old child, abandoned by the legal system and the highest levels of Northern Territory bureaucracy, railed against appalling cruelty.

And, details of a submission by the Northern Land Council, highly critical of a draft Environmental Impact Statement (EIS) for the long-term management of waste rock at the McArthur River mine 65km south-west of Borroloola. The submission also criticised the NT Government’s inadequate regulation.

Land Rights News - Northern Edition July 2016 Edition

Australia's longest-running Aboriginal newspaper

Land Rights News was first printed in 1976 and is Australia's longest-running Aboriginal newspaper, telling stories from remote Aboriginal lands from across the Northern Territory.

The newspaper has long been jointly produced by the Northern Land Council and Central Land Council but with so much happening within the regions of both organisations a decision was made for each Land Council to independently produce its own publications. This ensured that both Land Council media teams had the scope to report on the issues which directly affect the lives of Aboriginal peoples living in their respective regions. So now, the NLC produces Land Rights News-Northern Edition and the CLC produces Land Rights News-Central Australia*.
