‘About 200 people opposing the Federal Government’s intervention in Northern Territory Aboriginal communities have marched through the centre of Darwin.
The rally marked four years today since the start of the emergency response.
A group including Aboriginal leaders from the Top End and Central Australia marched down the mall to Parliament House calling for the intervention to end.
They have come up with an 11-point plan they want to see adopted, including winding back all leases signed under the emergency response, increasing investment in Aboriginal teachers and recognising customary law in sentencing.’
