Australian Aboriginal people give their views on the Northern Territory Intervention
Using pictures and quotations taken from footage of actual consultations at Bagot, Ampilatwatja, Utopia and Yirrkala, this book provides a graphic account of the depth of frustration and despair of many Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory regarding the Intervention. It is therefore tragic that legislation about to be debated in Parliament pays scant attention to the views expressed by many Aboriginal people during the consultation process of 2009. Also included in This Is What We Said are quotes on the Intervention from other well known Australians and UN representatives.
