first time in its history at a campaign launch over the

Federal Election will be held on the 14th of September. Mr.
Ryan says Indigenous sovereignty, rolling back the NT
Intervention and pushing for Australia to become a republic
are some of the party’s key policy priorities.”

state’s 100th national park this month. She says the Burrup
Peninsula needs stronger protection from the effects of

30 Jan 13: “The National Indigenous Times reports that the
National Native Title Tribunal (NNTT) has confirmed that it
has engaged an external consultant “to review conflicts of
interest affecting a former employee (Lillian Maher), and
the NNTT’s procedures and processes for identifying,
declaring and managing conflicts of interest.” The National
Indigenous Times has written that these alleged conflicts
of interests by the former NNTT State Manager “might mean
the granting of exploratory licences to mining companies on
Yindjibarndi Country are tainted and may need to be
reviewed.” … ”

Constitutional reform burns path to justice: Congress
http://www.nirs.org.au/news/latest-news/7793-constitutional-reform-burns-path-to-justice-congress
30 Jan 13: “The National Congress of Australia’s First
Peoples says reforming the Constitution to recognise
Indigenous Australians would enhance the ability to gain
social justice. Co-chair Jody Broun says constitutional
recognition isn’t only symbolic. She says congress is
advocating it to remove the ability of Aboriginal and
Torres Strait Islanders to be racially-discriminated
against. Ms. Broun told an audience at the weekend’s Yabun
Festival in Sydney recognising Indigenous Australians in
the Constitution would help to continue the legacy of past
rights advocates.”

scheme designed to tackle the over-representation of
Indigenous people in the criminal justice system.
Indigenous Affairs Minister Glen Elmes is axing the
Indigenous Justice Taskforce, which was set up by the
previous government to improve safety in Aboriginal
communities. He says a new scheme should be set up within
the next six months.”

30 Jan 13: “ANGRY community representatives from across New
South Wales descended on the NSW Aboriginal Land Council
(NSWALC) head office on Friday to protest against the lack
of consultation surrounding applications for coal seam gas
(CSG) and uranium mining. Illawarra Local Aboriginal Land
Council (LALC) chair Roy ‘Dootch’ Kennedy called for the

30 Jan 13: “NATIONAL Congress of Australia’s First Peoples
backing for a legal challenge to the validity of Alcohol
Management Plan (AMP) laws in 19 Queensland Aboriginal
communities hasn’t gone down well in some circles, but
seems to be popular in at least one affected community. The
elected representative body maintains that its support for
Aboriginal pensioner Joan Monica Maloney’s High Court
challenge to her 2010 conviction for alcohol possession on
Palm Island, off Townsville, is about testing race
discrimination laws against human rights.”

Koori Mail: We have survived
[scroll down page] http://www.koorimail.com/index.php?page=Current+Edition
30 Jan 13: “WHILE many parks, ovals and beaches throughout
the country were awash with the Australian flag – complete
with the Union Jack – Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander
flags fluttered above others as our mob marked and
interpreted the 225th anniversary of the First Fleet in
different ways. For many, 26 January is regarded as
Survival Day, Invasion Day or Sovereignty Day. Some took
the opportunity to welcome new Australians to country, some
protested invasion, some celebrated our many achievements,
and others went bush to escape all of the fuss.”

Koori Mail: Peris’ Senate run
[scroll down page] http://www.koorimail.com/index.php?page=Current+Edition
30 Jan 13: “OLYMPIC gold medallist Nova Peris is on track
to become the Australian Labor Party’s first Indigenous
representative in Federal Parliament. Prime Minister Julia
Gillard backed the former champion hockey player and
sprinter, naming her as a ‘captain’s pick’ for a Senate
place from the Northern Territory at the next election. In
doing so she effectively disendorsed sitting ALP senator
Trish Crossin, and she also incurred the wrath of
Aboriginal rank and file members of the Labor Party in the
Territory. Should 41-year-old Ms Peris win, she will also
become the first Indigenous woman elected to the Federal
Parliament.”

29 Jan 13: “THE High Court is being asked to lay down
sentencing principles that would require judges to consider
factors including social deprivation, overrepresentation in
jails and historical dispossession and colonisation when
sentencing Aboriginal offenders. The application for
special leave to appeal to the High Court has been lodged
by solicitors acting for William David Bugmy, from
Wilcannia in far western NSW, a chronic alcoholic who has a
mental illness and has been almost continually incarcerated
since he was 13 years old.”
