Australia: Aboriginal Refugees Flee Northern Territory Intervention

Anti-NT Intervention Protest
The migration of Aborigines from the Northern Territory in Australia reveals the unpopularity of the government's intervention which has torn Aboriginal families apart, reduced access to basic public services, and replaced 50% of welfare payments made to all residents with gift cards that could only be used at major retailers and only be spent on food and clothing. Aboriginal people across the country have spoken out against the intervention.
