IT’S TIME…for the voices to be heard
IRAG is currently working to assist a group of Central Australian town camp and community residents to get to the major gathering of Prescribed Area People which is taking place in Darwin from 18-20 JUNE 2009.
The purpose of the gathering is to discuss the common issues concerning Aboriginal people and to put together, as one voice, a strong public statement.
We have booked a 22-seater bus which leaves Alice Springs on 16 June. Private vehicles from communities and from Alice Springs will also be making the journey, picking up people from Tennant Creek, Barrow Creek and Ali Curung along the way.
We estimate a shortfall in funds of $5,000 at this point in time which will be needed to cover accommodation and food costs, and contingencies (bus costs are covered).
Any donation you are able to make,
no matter how small,
would help greatly.
Cheques made out to “Intervention Rollback Action Group” should be sent to: PO Box 8488, Alice Springs, NT 0871
or direct debit to:
Bendigo Bank Alice Springs
