This new book by ‘concerned Australians’ is an important historical record that focuses on the Senate Committee Inquiry into the Stronger Futures legislation. It shows how the Government decision-making process chose to ignore the views and ideas expressed by many Aboriginal people of the Northern Territory communities in much the same way as has happened since colonisation.
'A Decision to Discriminate' follows in the footsteps of concerned Australians earlier publications. It uses quotes as a way of recording what the people have said and is an invaluable resource for students of Aboriginal history and human rights law, particularly those with an interest in the continuing struggles of Aboriginal people.
