“……………….the Howard government had to ratify the ‘racial discrimination act’ so that it appeared fair and equable to the outside world, namely the UN.
They also enforced ‘compulsory acquisition’ of lands within the ‘Native Title Act’ to gain access of Aboriginal land. Though this act has to be agreed upon by the two parties involved that includes Aboriginal people, transparency and inclusiveness was not clear at first as the mass media attention was on the abuse and social decay of Aboriginal communities in the remote areas.
Remembering that Aboriginal reserve land areas hold untapped mineral resources such as uranium,gold, gas, bauxite, etc. One wonders of the shell-games regarding the government.
