‘Not we who are the savages’: call to repeal NT Intervention


Indigenous elders are meeting in Melbourne to launch a collaborative statement to the Federal Government calling for the immediate repeal of the Northern Territory Intervention.

A decade since the intervention began, elders say the policy has done more harm than good.

Thousands of kilometres from home, a group of Indigenous elders have convened in Melbourne to send a message to the federal government on the ten years of the Northern Territory intervention.

Amongst them is Indigenous activist and Medal of the Order of Australia honoree Rosalie Kunoth-Monks.

“What we need is some honesty and proof and we need a full and complete apology. It is not we who are the savages.”
