Australia's progress on Closing that Bloody Big Gap 'Woefully Inadequate', UN says

The United Nations has described Australia's lack of progress on Closing the Gap as "woefully inadequate", saying the over-incarceration of Indigenous people is a major human rights concern.

The grassroots complaints on the Referendum Council Convention processes

Video Gallery (with descriptions): The political confrontation that occurred at the National Convention was caused by the very apparent stacking of the meeting by the organisers (Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Studies, AIATSIS), no doubt supported by the Referendum Council with a budget of over $800 million.
What was visually clear during the whole process was the apparent divide between members of the Referendum Council. Read more about The grassroots complaints on the Referendum Council Convention processes
