More than two years have passed since Til Schweiger obtained the closure of directactionde.ucrony.net. Since that time, it’s been more difficult to create an overview – and to definitively give some courage. Indymedia Linksunten is used and considered by many as a platform, but texts published on it soon become archived on back pages. Chronics in ‘underground notebooks’ or listings by topics create an overview from time to time. Much remains unnoticed, especially without a claim of responsibility in it’s stride.

"In March 2015 Indigenous affairs minister Nigel Scullion announced the successful recipients to receive funding from the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS). In spite of this, a need for a coordinated national approach to the funding, monitoring and evaluation of service delivery for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities remains ever pressing.

CAAMA Radio: The Intervention - An Anthology - Time for a National Debate
In just a few weeks, the early 20th Century Federation bungalow at 13 Highview Lane, Neutral Bay, also known as 1 Premier Street, will be demolished, to be replaced by a five storey hulking cement and aluminium monstrosity, another blight on the landscape of this historic suburb.
The approval process has taken over a year, no doubt due to strong objections from residents of Neutral Bay, a suburb full of historic houses from the early days of settlement. It is said that the process began ten years ago.

* Update: Walkatjurra Walkabout: The end of another year
The Australian government expends an estimated $1.7 billion on responding to illicit drugs every year, with policing comprising 64% of this expenditure. One core assumption underpinning this investment is that police can deter, discourage or prevent drug offending. It is argued that drug laws and enforcement of those laws will reduce involvement in drug use and trafficking. But, there remains very limited research into the extent or nature of deterrent effects. One cause of this gap is methodological.

24th September MEDIA RELEASE ‘concerned Australians’
New Book, "The Intervention - an Anthology", is Very Timely.
Consultation, Consultation, Consultation !!!
In the second half of 2015 it is becoming clearer that many Aboriginal people and their communities "are now so fed up with Government orchestration of the so called policy consultation process that they are asserting their right to discuss the issues on their own and where necessary challenge or resist the oppression," Jeff McMullen AO.
The idea of youth at risk has become central to a range of discourses, academic and professional. In the regional and global contexts of significant social, economic and technical change, narratives of risk and uncertainty are widespread Young people, meanwhile, are seen both as a treasured resource and as endangered and dangerous—at risk.
