14 skulls handed to traditional owners in Berlin

One of Europe’s largest university clinics, the 300-year-old Charité in Berlin, Germany, has just returned 14 skulls of Aboriginal people to indigenous representatives. The skulls were packed singly in boxes and during a handover ceremony stood in a lecture hall. The boxes were covered by various indigenous flags, reported a Berlin newspaper.
Representatives of the Australian government and ministries as well as the embassy attended the ceremony. The Aborigines took possession of the remains of their ancestors as “traditional owners”.

Warrants are sought for the arrest of Tony Abbott, Scott Morrison, George Brandis and others

as previously advised, isja had intended to do a view of the current human rights abuses and abrogations and the federal government's fully sanctioned criminal acts against the legitimate right of asylum seekers to come to this country. they are not 'boat people' or 'illegals', their legitimacy or otherwise must be decided only by standards of the un declaration on refugees of which australia has been a long time signatory.

instead we pass on the detailed application to show cause below and urge your full support in this action.

99-Year Township Leases

Yolngu Nations Assembly (YNA) urges the Commonwealth Government and indigenous communities to consult carefully before considering entering into 99-year township leases.

In October last year, Senator Nigel Scullion announced that Gunbalanya traditional owners had agreed to work towards finalising a 99-year lease by 30 June 2014, stating that he and the traditional owners “agreed that a township lease was the most effective way to achieve economic and commercial development in Gunbalanya.”

Native Title a powder keg of corruption waiting to explode

Gerry Georgatos - courtesy of The National Indigenous Times - http://nit.com.au/ - Native title is a powder keg of improprieties and corruption just waiting to explode so that if and when it does then at long last native title can be crafted with the necessary changes so that indeed the peoples of the land, the impoverished communities, are reached by the native title benefits which for now much of these intended benefits are being rorted and denied to them.

Turn About

Almost 320 years ago to the day, the twin global economic problems of poverty and eco-devastation, were legitimised by an act of the English Parliament.

Could it be time for a new Act to reverse this situation?

So Bentley protester; as a concerned citizen you legitimately object to what you say is, and hopefully now was, an unnecessarily destructive, irrational attempt by the gas and oil miner Metgasco, to exploit our local Northern Rivers environment. However, assuming the yoke of our financial-system it may well be exploitation but irrational it is not.
