IRAG:23 Mar 09:
“Aboriginal women traveling interstate from the
Northern Territory have been unable to access their money
due to the limitations imposed by the Northern Territory
Intervention. Barbara Shaw from Alice Springs and Valerie
Martin from Yuendumu have been in the Byron Bay Shire on a
speaking tour for the past week. During this time, they
have been unable to access their money held in quarantine
by Centrelink.”
