Action for Alice apologises for ‘racist’ ads on Imparja

Well known Indigenous singer and
songwriter Warren H. Williams has settled a complaint against the Action
for Alice Group for a series of advertisements ran last March by
accepting their apology and the removal of the advertisements from
broadcast and the internet.
Shine Lawyers, in a media release, say they together with Human Rights
and Cyber Racism expert George Newhouse launched the complaint against
the Action for Alice Group and the local television station Imparja in
the Australian Human Rights Commission in March.
Mr Williams’ original complaint argued the advertisements were racist as they portrayed Aboriginals as criminals.
"I am pleased that the Action for Alice Group has accepted that the
advertisements were offensive to ordinary Aboriginals like me," the
release quotes Mr Williams.
“The outcome we have negotiated means that the Action for Alice Group
and Imparja have agreed not to publish or broadcast the advertisements
ever again."
