28 Mar 14: "Organisers and patrons in Alice Springs have marched in protest against what they have described as racist laws and policing. ... Protesters said a repeal of Section 95 of Northern Territory Liquor Act will re-instate a law that applies to all residents. "Bring back the ID system where everyone of every race and colour has to produce ID,” said demonstration organiser Barbara Shaw. ... "We need to treat it as a disease and we need to start putting more money into rehab centres and not putting our people in jail because whilst we're incarcerated there is no help and services in our jails and prison systems in the Northern Territory that actually deals with alcohol as a disease," said Miss Shaw."

27 Mar 14: "Aboriginal people in Alice Springs say they are being targeted by police, searched and asked personal questions when they go to buy alcohol. They rallied today to have section 95 of the Liquor Act removed. They say they are being racially profiled by police who assume every Aboriginal person is a problem drinker.
