The Indigenous people of the Northern Territory are fighting for their freedom. The Stronger Futures legislation proposes to extend key elements of the Northern Territory Intervention until 2022. The Northern Territory Intervention has been condemned by the United Nations as racially discriminatory and contrary to international human rights principles.
The Stronger Futures legislation is opposed by Indigenous people across the Northern Territory and civil society across the nation. They need to generate a mass movement to make the Government listen to their concerns: That Indigenous people have the right to control their own futures, to enjoy the right to freedom.
