'Hunted like dogs' by Intervention

Last night's Q&A on the ABC was hugely useful for understanding
the popular national debate about Aboriginal issues: Its perverse
uselessness, to be precise.

Rosalie Kunoth-Monks (pictured) commented on the
Federal Intervention, costing millions of dollars, in the wake of the
chilling "Children are Sacred" report into abuse and neglect. She
recalls that army, police and bureaucrats arrived in her home town of
Utopia and proceeded to "hunt us like dogs".

Moderator Tony Jones did not ask for an explanation nor elaboration.

It was a notable addition to Mrs Kunoth-Monks vocabulary: Last week she accused Australia of "ethnic cleansing".

Was the Darwin audience outraged? No way. It applauded. Profusely. Photo: Mrs Kunoth-Monks makes a point during the show, flanked by NT Chief Minister Paul Henderson (left) and moderator Tony Jones. COMMENT by ERWIN CHLANDA.
