    This brings to mind a biblical quote from Ephesians Chapter 6 Verse 12 in the New International Version:

    For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

    I Just cant understand why Aboriginal people keep voting for Labor or Liberals, as if they are the only two parties… time to think Green and vote for the Greens!

    Better yet, its about ownership, and sadly our people get on the band wagon and support the major parties because our parents use to vote for them in the past and I geuss lack of knowing (in my case). We should start another party – I understand in past years, our mob started polictical parties, Independants etc….. but mostly, there was no support from our own mob with the supporting our mob parties. There is one http://www.afnpp.com/104895803 in NT, be good for us and our fellow Australians with similar values as our First Nations people to have our own party at a national level and branches in each state/territory etc……and one brother-man initiated one in ACT http://josephlafferty.com/act_fnpp.html …..but I geuss the best structure was ATSIC model where we elect our mob from the regions etc. But Mal, is a big NO NO :)

    I was a CDEP participant in the Murraylands in 2006. What a great initiative. Community cohesion and support at its best. Thanks for blaming Aboriginal people for your failures and trashing it, Mr Howard.

    SAY NO TO TONY ABBOTT – He ain’t no friend of blackfellas, mark my words. He claims his expenses for ‘volunteer work’ in Indigenous communities from the taxpayer, and then beats his chest. A total poseur and rorter.

    I was part of the first Dreaming festival in 2006′. It was amazing a True Corroboree. Everyone gathered around the main waterhole for the opening. The air was alive with great energy…we listened to speakers open the festival and share in our goodwill…then Mal Brought took to the microphone and proceeded to scold us like schoolchildren- focusing on all the bad stereotypes reported in the media- not one word of praise for us. Sadly everyone stayed silent and let him rant. He is an oppressive individual. I feel sorry for him.
