Intervention protesters condemn UN Declaration hypocrisy

STICS:30 Mar 09:
“The Stop the Intervention Collective in Sydney
(STICS) will hold a protest today at 1pm at the offices of
Prime Minister Kevin Rudd demanding an end to the NT
Intervention and the current pressure on remote communities
across Australia to sign long term land leases in exchange
for housing. STICS have described the Rudd government as
hypocritical, following the recent announcement that
Australia will endorse the United Nations Declaration on the
Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The group says the
Intervention and proposed leasing arrangements severely
contravene the declaration.”
