Human rights abuse continues in Aboriginal Australia

Pat Turner and Olga Havnen, respected Aboriginal activists and leaders, are interviewed in this video about the disgraceful and continuing Northern Territory Intervention. The essence of this intervention is the dismantling of Aboriginal land rights so as to ensure free and unfettered access to Aboriginal lands by giant mining and pastoral companies. To justify this land grab, whole Aboriginal communities have been demonised as drunkards and paedophiles. This is a continuing story of human rights abuses within Australian borders.
