Parliament House protest against 'Stronger Futures', new NT Intervention legislation
At noon on Tuesday February 28 at Parliament House in Canberra, Aboriginal leaders, human rights organisations and community activists will rally against the Stronger Futures legislation scheduled for debate in the House of Representatives.
This legislation will extend the NT Intervention for a further ten years and expand Income Management across the country.
The rally is part of a campaign, 'Stand for Freedom', which has been launched online and is demanding Aboriginal self-determination and an end to the NT Intervention and Income Management.
