Impacts of living under the Intervention

A Further Conversation with Elders

'Concerned Australians' present
A Further Conversation with Elders: Bringing you up to date with the impacts of living under the Intervention
Melbourne - Monday 7th February, 2011 - Website

In May 2010 elders, Rosalie Kunoth Monks OAM from Utopia in Central Australia and Rev. Dr. Djiniyini Gondarra OAM from Galiwin’ku in Arnhem Land joined in conversation with Professor the Hon Alastair Nicholson AO giving their views on the Northern Territory Intervention.

Since then they have visited Geneva and shared their concerns with the UN Committee for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. On 7 February 2011 Rosalie and Djiniyini will visit us in Melbourne to share with us the response of the United Nations.

They will be accompanied by a number of other elders and leaders from across the Territory and together they will share with us what has been happening in the period since last May and highlight the changes that are taking place in the various communities and homelands from Arnhem Land to the Central Desert. Those who met with Rosalie and Djiniyini last year will remember their distress and despair brought about by over three years of Intervention.

Guest Speakers include:
Professor The Hon Alastair Nicholson AO RFD QC, Professorial Fellow, University of Melbourne
Rosalie Kunoth Monks OAM from Utopia in Central Australia
Rev. Dr. Djiniyini Gondarra OAM from Galiwin’ku in Arnhem Land
