Northern Territory Intervention

Movers Freier, P.

That General Synod urges the Federal Government, in relation to the intervention in Northern Territory Aboriginal communities, to ensure ongoing monitoring of the intervention process and, as part of the monitoring process:
a) to evaluate rigorously the effectiveness of the quarantining of welfare payments, the enforced medical examination of children, and any plans to acquire land compulsorily; and
b) to listen to the concerns and advice of Aboriginal community leaders in relation to the intervention.
