Dotty Mamblett, The School Council President of the Ballerrt Mooroop College is requesting help and stresses the urgency!

Dotty said that the Education Department has met with the school Council Sub-Committee and has announced that nothing has changed and the GSS plans for using Indigenous college land will continue as previously announced.

She said that she is desperate for support in protesting on the site at Hilton Street, Glenroy. "I am a mother, carer and aunt to 10 children and cannot fight it on my own," she said. "I need people to take action and do whatever they can to help me, because at the moment I have nothing."

"We need to stand as one ... and not allow the government to take away our land, knowledge, culture and everything else us Aboriginal people are, again!"

"Where can our young Aboriginal generations of children go where they feel as one, and where they can learn their culture, customs and tradition alongside numeracy and literacy?"

"I need someone to protest beside me, someone who can lend a helping hand, someone who's shoulder I can cry on!"
