Petition against NT intervention for the Federal Senate

Dear all,

With the support of activists from “prescribed areas” in the NT, the Aboriginal Rights Coalition in Sydney have initiated a national petition against the NT intervention.

Labor Senator for the NT Trish Crossin has agreed to present the petition to parliament in late June, to mark one year since the intervention and to coincide with the beginning of the official “review” process.

We are aiming to have thousands of signatures from all around the country.

Please print off the attached petition and circulate in your workplaces, organisations and communities. Return petitions to:

Aboriginal Rights Coalition, Sydney PO Box 114 Broadway by 14/06/2008.

We are also seeking public endorsement of the petition from supportive organisations. Please reply to aboriginalrightscoalition @ gmail . com if your organisation is willing to endorse.

You can download the petition from here: Petitionagainstintervention.doc
