      NEW BOOKLET RAISES AWARENESS OF THE IMPACT OF TRAUMA ON CHILDREN

      SNAICC News:
      New booklet raises awareness of the impact of trauma on children
      http://www.snaicc.org.au/news-events/fx-view-article.cfm?loadref=32&id=1031
      [Secretariat of National Aboriginal and Islander Child Care]
      19 Mar 13: "The Healing Foundation has published a booklet
      to help promote understanding of the effects of the trauma
      of forced removal over generations and ongoing colonisation
      on children now. Trauma and its effects continue to be
      passed on through the generations, and children today
      witness and experience those effects. Growing our Children
      up Strong and Deadly explains the complex ways in which
      trauma is experienced and transmitted, and outlines the
      effects of intergenerational trauma on children and young
      people."


      * ABC ALICE SPRINGS AUDIO INTERVIEW WITH MARIE ELLIS:
      WHY WE WANT OUR COMMUNITY BACK


      - Audio Interview

      ABC Alice Springs: Why we want our community back
      By Brendan Phelan
      http://www.abc.net.au/local/audio/2013/03/17/3717414.htm?site=alicesprings
      17 Mar 13: "A long-running legal battle to eject a Northern
      Territory Shire from an Aboriginal community has entered
      mediation. The Amoonguna Community Council Incorporated
      initiated the legal action six years ago when the
      MacDonnell Shire took over. The head of the community
      council, Marie Ellis, said the mediation was requested by
      the Shire, but that it was still unclear exactly what will
      be on the negotiating table. Ms Ellis said that the
      dysfunction in her community had worsened under the
      management of the MacDonnell Shire, and that they had had
      not done enough to tackle the key problem of alcohol
      abuse."

      NEW PUSH FOR DIALYSIS IN REMOTE COMMUNITIES
      AS 'SERVICE HUBS' JUNKED


      - Audio Interview

      The Wire:
      New push for dialysis in remote communities
      as 'service hubs' junked
      Produced by Tim Roxburgh
      http://www.thewire.org.au/storyDetail.aspx?ID=10151
      19 Mar 13: "After a plan to deliver dialysis services at
      central locations collapsed this week, there are renewed
      calls for the government to redirect the funds into mobile
      dialysis units so that kidney treatment can be given to
      people where they live, on country. The Northern Territory
      government has rejected ten million dollars in federal
      funding for two dialysis service centres in Alice Springs
      and Tennant creek. The NT government said it shouldn’t have
      to fork out for the ongoing service costs of 1.8 million a
      year. This leaves it unlikely that the centres will ever
      be built. ...

      The Stringer: From Secret Country to Forgotten Peoples
      http://thestringer.com.au/from-secret-country-to-forgotten-peoples/
      19 Mar 13: "WA has the nation’s highest median income - per
      capita it is the richest State in the Commonwealth of
      Australia yet it has the highest homelessness rate in the
      nation. Its poorest people - most of them Aboriginal -
      have not benefited from the mining boom. More and more
      Western Australians are stepping up and speaking out about
      the stark contrast between those benefiting from mining and
      those whom the mining boom has left behind. Critics are
      saying that chronically impoverished Aboriginal peoples
      are missing out on a once in a lifetime opportunity to
      rise out of poverty." By Gerry Georgatos,

      * CHRIS GRAHAM AT LARGE:
      FRENETIC ACTIVITY, BUGGER-ALL PROGRESS: THE ART OF BUREAUCRACY


      - Analysis / Opinion

      Chris Graham At Large:
      Frenetic activity, bugger-all progress: the art of bureaucracy
      http://chrisgrahamatlarge.com/2013/03/19/frenetic-activity-bugger-all-progress-the-art-of-bureaucracy/
      19 Mar 13: "THERE are at least two truisms in Aboriginal
      affairs. The first is that the more things change, the more
      they stay the same. I’ll come back to that one. The second
      is that the road through Aboriginal affairs, while often
      paved with good intentions, is sometimes paved with bad
      ones. In the interests of my new-found positivity (refer to
      my last column in Tracker for background!), I’m going to
      assume that when Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Jenny
      Macklin held a gun to the head of Alice Springs town
      campers and told them that unless they signed over their
      land for 40 years it would be compulsorily acquired, that
      her intentions were good." By Chris Graham,
      "the former managing editor of Tracker magazine,
      now a freelancer and roving reporter for Tracker"

      SBS World News: Long way to go to close the work gap: report
      Source: Nancia Guivarra, NITV News
      http://www.sbs.com.au/news/article/1747824/Long-way-to-go-to-close-the-work-gap-report
      18 Mar 13: "Closing the work gap in the corporate sector
      has improved in the last ten years but there's still a long
      way to go, says a new report released today. It seems
      closing the work gap in the corporate sector is not just
      about increasing job opportunities for Indigenous people.
      The key is to engage more effectively with Indigenous
      communities, the report says. "Thinking about two way
      conversations, it's not just a one way relationship where
      the private sector goes in to deliver an employment
      program or sell the population", said Janice Constable,
      author of Closing the Work Gap."

      19 Mar 13: "By NIRS/Koori Radio: New South Wales Greens MLC
      David Shoebridge has supported calls for a retrial of the
      main suspect of the infamous murders of three Aboriginal
      children at Bowraville over 20 years ago. A rally was held
      last week calling for justice in response to state
      Attorney-General Greg Smith’s refusal to grant a retrial."

      * Adam Giles elevation to the position of leadership within
      Northern Territory politics has been recognised by
      significant Aboriginal organisations who see the new
      direction in leadership as a positive for their people."
