Yesterday in court, lawyers for town camp resident and prominent anti-intervention campaigner Barb Shaw obtained a temporary 'stay of execution'. Shaw is seeking an injunction against the minister compulsorily acquiring the town camps, or signing any agreement with Tangentyere because the actual tenants of the town camps have never been properly notified that their rights are about to be extinguished.
The Federal Court will reconvene on Tuesday to continue hearing the case.
Melbourne Anti-Intervention Collective is calling to a solidarity rally on Tuesday August 4, from 10:00am until 12:00 noon outside the Federal Court, corner of William and Latrobe Streets, Melbourne.
Bring banners, and musical instruments.
Marisol Salinas On behalf of Melbourne Anti-Intervention Collective
