Summary
"After decades of hollow promises, it was time to cut the talk. In Canberra's eyes, the rolling scandal of child sexual abuse in Indigenous communities demanded action, swift and certain. So the Federal Government grabbed control of 73 Territory bush communities, dispatching soldiers and police to "stabilise" townships and squads of doctors and nurses to check the kids. It declared it would ban grog and porn, quarantine welfare payments and scrap the visitor permit system. Four months on from the dramatic announcement, what impact is the intervention having on the thousands of people it is supposed to help? Among the majority who are neither diehard opponents nor committed barrackers for the intervention, is the early confusion and fear giving way to wary optimism - or to a familiar weary cynicism?"--website
