Stop the Forced Closure of Aboriginal Communities in Australia says
#SOSBLAKAUSTRALIA invite you to stand in solidarity to STOP THE FORCED CLOSURE OF ABORIGINAL COMMUNITIES.

Since November 2014 there has been a steady roll-out of both overt and covert actions all aimed toward mass displacement of Aboriginal people from their homelands.

While the rhetoric has changed, along with the Prime Minister, the intent and threat of closure is still present. We have seen, over the past months, the defunding of essential services to these regions (and across Australia) as well as the push toward forced income management trials targetting Aboriginal Communities. A vision of servitude from corrupt Mining magnate Andrew "Twiggy" Forrest, influencing Federal politics. http://www.theaustralian.com.au/national-affairs/indigenous/andrew-forrests-healthy-welfare-card-gets-go-ahead/story-fn9hm1pm-1227454693335?sv=85d673c51d77e93b4a7a3394630a18b5

We have heard repeated claims of abuse leveled at the Aboriginal Community, yet zero provenance has been provided by Government to verify or substantiate these claims. They remain baseless and fanciful stories designed to create a diversion around the Government's aspirations toward the Great Land Grab of 2015, opening up expansion for mining and business interests unashamedly outlined in their White Paper. http://northernaustralia.infrastructure.gov.au/

We have also seen an alleged sum of 90million dollars handed to the State Government of Western Australia by Federal LNP, yet no accountability as to how much of this has already been spent by the Bureaucracy, nor where the compound interest has gone. We know often the ratio of funds are 80% back to Government and only 20% to Communities, keeping the benefiiciaries well flushed and the communities impoverished.

12 months on and the situation has worsened. Let us be the marker in history that shows how people power can restore humanity when it is needed.

STAND UP AND BE COUNTED!!
