Event: Sun 9 December 2012: Adelaide CBD, SA
International Human Rights Day Book Launch
Note new date and venue!
The Women’s International League for Peace
and Freedom (WILPF) will be launching the book:
A Decision to Discriminate
- Aboriginal Disempowerment in the Northern Territory
released by 'concerned Australians'
Launched by:
* Rev Dr Djiniyini Gondarra OAM,
representing the Yolngu Nations
* Rosalie Kunoth Monks OAM,
representing the Alyawaar Nations
"This is a rare opportunity to meet with
these two distinguished Elders and
to hear first-hand stories."
New venue: Pilgrim Hall at rear of Pilgrim Uniting Church,
12 Flinders St, Adelaide CBD
"Through the use of direct quotations,
this new book is an important historical record
that focuses on the Senate Committee Inquiry
into the Stronger Futures legislation. It shows
how the Government decision-making process
chose to ignore the views and ideas expressed
by many Aboriginal people of the Northern Territory
communities in much the same way as has
happened since colonisation."
"Following the book launch
Amnesty International Australia
will have the regional launch of their
2012 Reconciliation Action Plan
at which the honoured guest will be
Kaurna Elder Lynette Crocker."
