      21 Jun 13: "A former member of the United Nations Committee
      on the Rights of the Child, Marta Mauras (pictured above)
      recently visited Australia as a guest of SNAICC, a national
      non-governmental peak body, representing the interest of
      Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and
      families. At their annual conference in Cairns, Ms Mauras
      made recommendations that, Australia has to do more to
      understand the cultural sensitivity associated with
      removing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children
      from their families and culture. Ms Mauras spoke to
      CAAMA about these recommendations."

      in Indigenous Health.
      "NACCHO's ten point plan integrates the Close the Gap
      Statement of Intent signed by state and territory
      governments across Australia in 2008. It demonstrates the
      vision of Aboriginal people to continue to work towards
      better health outcomes, but that vision is yet to be
      matched by all the state and territory Governments,"
      Senator Rachel Siewert said today
      "As the current Closing the Gap health partnership agreement
      will expire at the end of this month, it is now critical
      that governments follow through on their commitment to
      improving health and life expectancy rates of Aboriginal
      people.
      "We know that community driven programs are the best way of
      delivering health programs, and this is emphasised by the
      fact that 70% of Closing the Gap health gains have come
      through Aboriginal Community Controlled Health services.

      alcohol is the answer to curbing drinking in Indigenous
      communities, north Queensland mayors say. The High Court on
      Wednesday ruled alcohol management plans (AMP) in 19
      Indigenous Queensland communities do not breach national
      and international racial discrimination laws. Communities
      are now being asked if they want to ditch AMPs, however
      they will have to prove they can maintain public safety and
      keep school attendance rates up."

      19 Jun 13: "QUEENSLAND: In a ruling handed down in
      Canberra on Wednesday, the court rejected arguments that
      the management plans, which restrict and sale and
      possession of alcohol, breach both United Nations and
      federal racial discrimination laws. ... Palm Island
      resident Joan Monica Maloney was the driving force behind
      the High Court appeal ... Her lawyers argued earlier this
      year in the High Court that the decision was wrong and that
      the law deprived her of rights afforded to nearly all
      non-indigenous Australians."
