The Coalition Advocating Indigenous Human Rights has been specific since 2005 that it is South Australia which has allowed a catastrophic situation to enmesh all the Aboriginal peoples in South Australia since its inception.
Because the State has compelled these communities to endure this without vesting in them any of the legal rights that are necessary to overcome such an endemically disadvantaged position, it needs to make and support an internal response that is positive in intention and proactively co-ordinated in its extent, to get the money more quickly and more proficiently targeted, to every community where it is needed.
This is the only viable policy raised in South Australia, since 19 February 1836 and the issuing of the Letters Patent, reserving capital rights to all the traditional owners and their descendants to occupy and enjoy their traditional lands and waters for always, that would address the issues of actually helping all the descendants as Nations especially when so many are having to rent their homes on their own ancestral lands and even at risk of losing them if away for extended periods of time or perhaps not resourced and supported enough to maintain rental contributions.
It is undeniable that South Australia has a humanitarian obligation to form a dedicated fund for properly provisioning the responses now needed to eradicate these afflictions.
Bureaucratic machinery does exist to provide a range of indispensable services, but it is inappropriately instituted to deploy the funds required for the essential community development required.
South Australia must address the endemic poverty and subsequent chronic distress generally suffered by South Australia’s Aboriginal communities as is evidenced by their atrocious general health, welfare dependency, degraded well-being, and acute social disadvantage. This human tragedy needs an effective humanitarian response.
The long overdue delivery of properly targeted financing needs the directive input of all the South Australian Aboriginal communities.
However, the necessity for a generational change in government preparedness, speed of response, and co-ordination of whole-of-government action cannot be met by this.
There needs to be an immediate financial circuit breaker that enables the directive input of all the South Australian Aboriginal communities and at the same time expands the scope of the necessary minimum capital response to include the international monetary system. A “Marshall Plan” style economic program for the full Recovery of all the Australian Aboriginal Countries from the Cold War is one such mechanism which needs to be addressed by the South Australian and the national governments with the international assistance of a Global Summit on Aboriginal Health as part of a British, French and United States post Cold War commitment to Economic Recovery of Aboriginal Countries from the Cold War.
Such a capital and financing resourcing policy for all descendants in South Australia has been raised by the Coalition Advocating Indigenous Human Rights since 2005.
Its mimimum 4 terms to secure capital rights to all the South Australian traditional owners and their descendants to occupy and enjoy their traditional lands and waters for always by a facility which would address the issues of actually helping the descendant Nations especially when so many are having to rent their homes on their own ancestral lands and even at risk of losing them if away for extended periods of time or perhaps not resourced and supported enough to maintain rental contributions, are as follows:
1. The State ought be challenged to produce viable plans for increasing aid to alleviate the distress of Aboriginal communities by extra financing of its current forward contingencies;
1a. In stage one South Australia will need to input loan capital and a stream for subsidies.
2. Stage two will need the input of social and economic institutions and business, unions and the other social organizations needing to be convinced of the utility of the facility;
2a The way forward is to empower the afflicted communities to make an immediate call on a facility that is sustained by donors as readily accessible and for a fast disbursing.
3. It is necessary for South Australia to plan for the funding of sources of investment aid to establish the capacity for these communities to engage in their construction as fully health-serviced, viable, socially directed, economically interdependent, stable, whole, self-functioning and accountable organizations which are well capitalised to this end;
3a. The new whole of government co-ordination of program assistance is equally needed.
4. However, using the normal political process of the State to pledge enough money is insufficient;
For work to help, helping must work. A State Aboriginal Fund is a good foundation.
