NT Aboriginal Leaders condemn Intervention, housing program failure
Alyawarr spokesperson and leader Richard Downs, from Ampilatwatja community in the Northern Territory, condemns the ongoing rollout of the NT Emergency Response Measures. He and other elders walked off their settlement in June last year and started a community protest camp on his traditional country. They’re going to try and use solar power and perma culture etc to build a self-sufficient community, without any government support.
It was covered by the media in July 2009.
