Yesterday, Jenny Macklin unveiled the new Labour plan to reinvigorate the Northern Territory intervention. The Gillard government will put into place tough measures to suspend parent centrelink payments if found that their children are truants; amongst other measures.
In an 88 page document detailing the Intervention and it’s effectiveness, the report finds widespread acceptance of the federal governments measures to date.
However, we want to hear about your story and your opinion in this matter. On last night’s QandA, Rosalie Kunoth-Monks amongst others are campaigning heavily for a stop to the intervention and to restore rights to Aboriginal people.
Here in WA, our Indigenous people will feel the ramifications of the decisions made in the Northern territory. Is this working? Is this fair? Is this just? Does the intervention provide equal rights for Aboriginal people? Will it work?
