UNITED NATIONS SPECIAL RAPPORTEUR OF INDIGENOUS PEOPLES COMES TO DARWIN The United Nations Special Rapporteur, Victoria Tauli-Corpuz visited Darwin on 23rd March. During her visit, Ms. Tauli-Corpuz addressed a number of diverse issues including Northern Territory Emergency Response (NTER) and its successor Stronger Futures & legislation measures and policies adopted to reduce indigenous disadvantage, the administration of justice and detention conditions, land rights and native title, prevention of violence against women and the rate of children removed from their homes by officials. Ms Tauli-Corpuz met with APO NT and other Aboriginal organisations, including Larrakia Nation and met with leaders at the Palmerston Indigenous Village (PIV) and went on a short drive through One Mile Dam. APO NT and some other organisations have provided briefing papers to further highlight the issues we face in the Northern Territory. A comment she did say was that she was surprised by the living conditions of our people, she could understand if she was in the Philippines (where Victoria is from) but this was AUSTRALIA!
