International Media – It’s expected to take decades for the First Australians to achieve true equality

“more families are sleeping rough even though the night time temperature drops below -0 at this time of year … still waiting for houses to be fixed … It’s hard to believe other Australians would put up with being treated like this. Outside contractors do the renovations while most of the local men are unemployed…”

One Response to International Media – It’s expected to take decades for the First Australians to achieve true equality

  1. I comment whenever I like a article on a website or if I have something to add to the conversation.
    It’s caused by the passion communicated in the article I browsed. And after this article International Media – Its expected to take decades for the First Australians to achieve true equality | Lateral Love Australia. I was actually excited enough to drop a comment :) I actually do have a couple of questions for you if it’s allright.
    Could it be just me or does it appear like a few of these remarks come across as if they are
    written by brain dead folks? :-P And, if you are posting on additional places,
    I would like to keep up with anything new you have to post.
    Could you list every one of all your public pages like your linkedin profile,
    Facebook page or twitter feed?
