Quote of the Day

“Proper community control in all Aboriginal Organisations is needed. Too many of our old people are suffering because control freaks are playing god. Bring back true democracy and practice proper governance so that all our peoples get a fair share of the resources. People have died as a result of being refused help from Organisations who are getting monies from the government to provide services and support to ‘ALL’ Aboriginal and Islanders including the Torres Straits peoples.” ~ Brian Butler

“The time is always right to do what is right.” ~ Martin Luther King Jr
