Brian Cassey: Indigenous Australia
Aurukun, Palm Island, Urandangi, Napranum, Mona Mona, Kowrowa, Hopevale and elsewhere in Queensland Australia.
Despite the Australian Governments "Sorry" to it's indigenous residents and the 40th anniversary of the referendum that finally gave indigenous people a vote ..... little has changed in Queensland communities.
Third world conditions prevail and children face a future of alcohol and sexual abuse in their decaying communities.
Urandangi on the Queensland/Northern Territory border has no power, water or sanitation and children sleep in the open on fraying foam mattresses.
In Aurukun the local school is near empty as kids play in the streets just metres away.
Some things don't change .......
