Brisbane Times:30 Mar 09:
“The Sunrise Health Service covers 112,000
square kilometres of the Northern Territory east of
Katherine and is at the frontline in dealing with the
health parts of the intervention. All but one community
within its area are subject to the intervention’s measures,
including welfare quarantining. Sunrise has compared data
collected before and since the intervention and the results
are dispiriting.” Larissa Behrendt and Irene Fisher
