The Great Alcohol Debate: Aboriginal Peak Organisations say 'politicians are right, our people must decide'

The Territory Government is determined to let Aboriginal people decide on whether they want grog or stronger grog in their communities. Minister for Indigenous Advancement Alison Anderson backs this while also expressing her confidence that 99.9% will say no to grog.  Now Aboriginal Peak   Organisations have announced a summit to get a "firm overview of Aboriginal views".

"Our politicians are right—the ultimate decision over managing alcohol on our communities must lie with our people—all of us," said  alliance spokesperson Priscilla Collins.
