An historic nationwide gathering of Aboriginal Peoples and supporters has been finalised for 6-9 July 2010 at the Alice Springs showgrounds
The planned Alice Springs convergence supported by Aboriginal Peoples and Non Aboriginal Peoples from across Australia is calling on the Rudd Federal Labor Government to bring an immediate end to the intervention and to re-instate the RDA (Racial Discrimination Act) fully and unconditionally.
The RDA which remains suspended with the full consent of the Rudd Labor Government allows for the contentious and racially
discriminatory aspects of the NTER intervention to continue unabated.
Alyawarr spokesman Richard Downs and his People walked-off their community in protest opposing the Rudd governments intervention in July 2009 is calling for all People, Aboriginal and Non-Aboriginal, throughout Australia to join together to rid Australia of racism and to ensure justice and equal recognition for Aboriginal Peoples and the promotion of human rights for all.
