"Nation. Alice Springs doing the drive program for the ABC analysis. Is Alex Pollack. Thanks for joining us, Alex. It's a pleasure, Raph. What's going on in Alice Springs? So much. Well, look, First of all, Let's talk about these sky who's down at all the room caring for a sick, torrential her because I don't know. I mean, do you have pits, not a transfer. How many people have pit translators? Well, when office makes you I was really surprised. Lots of people do have reptiles is pits spiders his pits much more so than I ever experienced on the East Coast. So it's not that uncommon, but it's pretty unusual to hear about someone you know, nursing a sick torrential, but this guy, he he actually does the reptile show down in the rock. And I think he's the guy that everyone just like brings seek insects, spiders, reptiles, too, And so that's how he ended up with this sick torrential to How big is the translator? And how has Sequels? It isn't standard songs You know about the size of your palm stands, chemistry. They come in all sizes have been having a lot of them around your part of the world. There are but I mean, now is the time for the male torrential her to be on the prowl. Um, And this is sort of lettuce. I'm not a spider expert. But my understanding is from heading to Danny. From all the room is that they're on the palate. The moment they're breeding. This is the men just looking for partners. That's kind of the whole life and then they die s. Oh, yes. So there is no over after mating season for transfers for the for the males. They're not family guys that I see here. So, Yeah, I get to maturity and then they don't so they could live for about seven years. But it takes that for them to actually reach maturity before they go on. Find multiple partners and then car, Kitt, The women were strong 25 years we can get to apparently again. Yes. Correctional females. 25 years. Yeah. Who just busy having babies all the time. So you know this is a sick male. And he basically he was handed to Danny because he wasn't looking great. He this morning When I was listening to Denny talk about him. He was on his back. He wasn't doing well, little that's a clear, so I think we all know that's a sign that a spot is not doing well. Apparently you also had mites all over him. And you're a mite too. So tiny. You can't really citizens. I guess they're quite big in comparison out there. Yeah. I mean, Mike is like, you know, it's smaller than a millimeter the ranks tiny, tiny. So not doing well as the might throw over the legs and the body. Apparently, they can get dehydrated. Really easily spot. I didn't know I guess again. It's decent song, Okay? And you don't put out a bowl of water for a torrential, er. They don't do that style of drinking. They just absorb water through their body. That's fascinating. So if they somewhere where there's not a whole lot of water, you know, we are typically known for that lot of dry Creek beds. Yeah, Dehydration is a big problem. So this particular torrential I was not doing well handed into Danny. Danny, you've been caring for it. But it was almost like an on air death because, as he was chatting to mornings presented, Nadine he sort of was saying IR looks like the trench was going into the death. Cool. And you know, that's when they sort of draw their legs in my God, your life radio so much for exciting than ours. Well, just a bit sad. What is it? What? It's kind of like It's amazing. We not do this sort of incredible life cycle of the things around us. It's kind of amazing. Well, I did. I mean, I just think I've never thought about caring for a sick spider. I mean, if there's a spider in our house, the try not to kill them. But often the kids that are like Mom kill it. So, Yeah, This is a different way to look at. You know, the beautiful torrential. That isn't going to hurt you. And so just to clarify. I mean, I do want to move, uncle. I know tons of people holidaying in Dallas, but If I go to a little road, I mean, you know, it's all one big. It's fantastically well done. Whole range of accommodation but do the reptile show? I'm like you to see Danny, who was looking after the sick torrential. You're definitely going to make Kenny and he's probably gonna have all these other spotters in ripped hauls back at his place that he's trying to look after his people keep dropping them off to him. Popular is Alice Springs right now. It is crazy. It's not state. There was a story that came out from online travel agency Scar scanner that said Alice Springs is the new Bali which is a little bit laughable way. Well, I mean, let's think it through dry Creek beds. Gorgeous. Yes. No, no rice paddies, No ocean. No Nazi going. I don't think a whole lot of parallels. However. Actually, I've had really good Indo Indonesian food in Alice, have you? I'm sure it was there a few years ago, and there was a Charlotte's intonation was a little restaurant. It was actually in an apartment blocks. It was like someone who made a restaurant at the bottom of a block of flats. I could've been there for a while. Sure, there was Indonesian while I remember. I remember that, too. And these sort of restaurants pop up in Dallas and you've got to get along quickly because they're like, Oh, yeah. Renowned for but at the moment it's true. People are not so coming here, so apparently, bookings are huge. A lot of strange that might otherwise be heading to places like Bali are choosing. To come to the center. You can't hire a car to save yourself. You can't get a combination anywhere. However, if you're looking for a job, you know businesses can't hire fast enough. And you know, really That's a bit of a problem because Trump Yeah. Massive staff shortage. So that's the case.

"Three seven eight hundred zero service which it will use on routes like melvina sydney melbourne adelaide to go cursed and melbourne gold coast which have already been announced and rex's also looking at flats from melbourne to brisbane sydney to brisbane sydney to adelaide. And perhaps even see nita camera. The first of those routes as i said launched this week and i was on one of the first flights between melbourne and sydney. Now i'd have to say that the wreck service on the ground was a little bit on organized in my experience once on board year could have been forgiven for thinking. You're flying with virgin australia now. Facade is rex's leased. Boeing seven three seven off former virgin australia aircraft. They have been repainted into a new wreck slavery but on the inside they look almost identical to tralee plane. The seats are exactly the same as what you'd find virginis trivia plane. The configuration is exactly the same in even the purple cabin divider and magnetic rope that separates economy from business clauses. Still ahead the only difference that i noticed on my flight was that the business class seat backs had been reupholstered to remove that virgin logo that was in boston to them all and there was no in flight. Entertainment wifi available on ranks but many elements of the virgin australia service of also being copied by rex including things like introducing the crew members as they stand the aisle at the sound of the flight and having a flight attendant standing back of business class off the landing so that the business class passengers can disembark. I now the mo- the boarding music is different. It's different tune to what you get on venice trailer. Although i'm pretty sure the music comes from exactly the same company that supplied australia with its current boarding music in terms of the service on board. I was pleasantly surprised with how polish it was. Rex might have started seven three seven flights this week but the cabin crew looked like they had years of experience. And that's because they had most of the crew..

The number right now is about four thousand five hundred fifty per week and this will increase from the fifteenth of february to around six thousand. Eight hundred weekly arrivals which is still just below what it was a ago.

And this time we're GONNA be talking about something been learning about the past few months. Which is the rights of Indigenous People in Australia? If you've been listening to our PODCAST You know that just Ni- are from South Africa in the United States separately. I'm from the United States justice from South Africa and we are not aboriginal people or in any way But we were very passionate about doing an episode on this topic because we've seen a lot of injustices in the world and in our travels yet to expand that all. Yeah well yeah like Charlet said neither of us are from indigenous groups and you were both like the colonizers in much. Yeah but I think that's one of the reasons why it's so important for us to be talking about this And finding a way to like raise awareness for the indigenous groups because a lot of the time people don't think about that and even back home in South Africa were like we've had a really good peace movement. People still don't like acknowledge the true ramifications of colonialism that has been that has had on our country and it's the same thing that we've noticed in Australia is people are very unaware in a lot of places and very very ignorant and I think it's important that we educate ourselves and talk about it. Yeah one of the reasons. I'm very interested in. This topic is during two thousand sixteen. When the d'appel North Dakota access pipeline was happening and the injustices that I saw towards native Americans really inspired me to try and make a change and currently have been researching a bunch on that topic and have connected to connected it a lot towards environmental racism and so that is why I wanted to focus on this topic today in our podcast super important to talk about. We're going to be going through some of the main terms that we're going to be using because this is different to our usual content. You might not know what's actually going on First term to talk about is colonialism. Now there's a whole lot of different types of colonialism but essentially one will be talking about most is settler colonialism and this is when one group of people move to another place moves to someone else's land and basically tries to take over that land so that can be in the case of places like Stralia and the states where people showed up and then said this is our land and that means everyone who was living here before copy here anymore or it could be in the case of like my country and South Africa were a small minority moved there but then took complete control even though the majority of the population were the people that were living there before So that's kind of what colonialism is. It's this inclination of like trying to take over the world in a way. Colonizers are the people who call our Joan people for the first nation people of Australia. The oldest people who've lived on the land and fun fact average Australians are actually the oldest surviving culture in the world with like traditions that date back sixty thousand years which is insane pretty amazing. Yeah Yeah and the colonizers that actually came over were the British. They were so they needed a place to put their prisoners in their convicts. They found Australia and they were like sick. Let's put these people here and one of the reasons because of that. Australia is very difficult back then to live on for people who don't know the land because of the amount of things that can literally kill you hear. The prisoner is like a really good experiment. Sent here I because it was like well then we can live. Yeah no yeah. It's a it's an intense story so the first colonisation of Australia happened in seventeen eighty eight. That was the first time that people actually settled on this land and before this there were more than five hundred indigenous groups that inhabited Australia and the way it worked back then was like it wasn't just one country. It was five hundred countries essentially or maybe less or more depending on the groups but it was divided up in the similar way to Europe and there are about seven hundred fifty thousand people living on this land cultured. Like I said that's developed for sixty thousand years and there were over three hundred languages spoken in total whereas today only about one hundred and forty five languages spoken with only eighteen being strongly spoken by lots of people so you can see immediately like the decline of the culture in the effect that that's had on original people because of this one. The colonizers were coming over. It's hard it was very hard for them to unite as like an aboriginal front. Because there's so many different tribes and Like currently like when it was being called as they're probably like still wars going on between tribes then as well so it wasn't like everyone is a one aboriginal nation it's all divided separately into different groups And then when we get further into so we're GONNA talk a bit about like how it is now and why that's difficult even unite. Today one of the things that was actually released pricing to us. Because we've spent seven weeks or six weeks now in Australia. Learning about indigenous cultures learning about that kind of stuff and we spent a week in Alice. Springs the rest of the time we've been in Melbourne. And what I found really interesting is when we first arrived in Melbourne we were welcomed by one of the aboriginal groups were under people with a smoking ceremony which is a typical welcome into the land. That when we went to central Australia near Alice Springs. We were told by the indigents people. They're like they don't have the thing and it was kind of a weird moment for me because I automatically assumed like. Oh this is what they blame. Everyone does it. Yes accents but you eventually realize that like those three hundred five hundred nations like were completely different groups and spanning across the country completely different cultures which makes it really difficult to unite even today so aboriginal. Australians are still facing a ton of issues today a ton of oppression from the White Australians and this is largely in part due to just the history of this country and the history of the racism that so institutionalized into the country's law so when the British first arrived in Australia they said Yeah. This land is free to take. Because they didn't recognize the aboriginal people as Human Beings. They were classified as flora and fauna so basically plants animals not human beings and that sentiment existed for years and it let it has led to a lot of the attitudes that sill exists today even if people are no longer classified that way they're classified as human beings like a It's still rings true. In the way the government treats these people one really good example of this In central Australia. There's this thing called the green credit card. Basically if you're aboriginal half of your income comes in whatever form you want and the other half needs to go on this card that basically you can only spend on assesses which they classify as clothes and food alcohol or tobacco products or anything like that. So if you're thinking of buying a house nope And this is a very big issue because they're basically controlling like where where you go in life if half of your income is stuck on that card then like that's that's it you know and this is just one way that the government really keeps control of Aboriginal people whereas they justify it as A. We're helping them because like many of them have addiction problems and things like that one in reality like no colonizers introduced alcohol to them and introduce tobacco products. And it's really actually your fault that that may be a problem in some communities but the people should still have a right to choose because they're people and this is where the whole flora and fauna thing connects back. I think it's a real real problem like this idea. And it was something that we encountered a fair amount in the northern territory yet. Definitely yeah we got to spend time not only with aboriginal communities but also like the settlers there and it was quite harsh because it was an attitude of we know best yes coming from the white people which was pretty horrific and you can see that through like that green card. We know best what you should be doing with your money rather than dealing with addiction problems at the source. Would you most frequently accident in? My research comes from like loss of culture. Loss of tradition like the oppression that's been placed on these people definite instead of focusing on that. It's it's just putting a band aid over the problem.

No. It was very good. It was the time before that. Yeah. The I mean, the on that we got it ahead of some thing. We're doing at the office yet. It was it was pretty terrible counterpoint. We had a great experience last night at outback steakhouse or outside of outback steakhouse, and then, you know, taking the Godley home. Parking it him in the pool. Just get new Godley and love it.

Ooh, you'd probably end up going with DV benef- DP Benny off undergo with the one million dollars. But I love to pick the brain of the man or woman who decided that they were gonna have a steakhouse, but it was going to be Australian theme.

"You're talking about the Arctic freeze sixteen deaths so far in the mid west room with this thing what a horrible thing it's terrible. And you know that animals have suffered just story of a guy left his dog outside. How could you do in these these they arrested him they charged him with? Probably probably oh my gosh. This thing that we're dealing with is everything seems to be in bigger swings of the pendulum, and that has what the computer said what happened and a global warming world that there would be things like the polar vortex. And there's physical reasons for why having to do with the upper atmosphere, although related to a general trend of warming, and it is it has been in the computer for going all the way back to when I was doing all the medical programming for the ABC station in Boston that was in the end of the seventies. And I interviewed one of the Harvard. Scientists who back then was one of the very first to start doing calculations on carbon dioxide and methane increase in then the twentieth century, and they didn't have the computers. That they have today. But I remember doing an interview with him and how sober he was in his Harvard office saying that if we are continuing on the path that we were in the seventies. That by the time we got into the twenty first century and there were predictions then. And it's amazing to me. Remembering that interview how much today is like what the computer even then with crude computer projections that it was very similar, and it's almost a bigger question. Why does humanity always have to go through learning? Everything the hard way. I'll let always does doesn't. It seems to be any conferences coming up for you. Conscious life expo you there. Yes. That's in. What is this? Now third weekend from Washington this weekend. And then it's a three weeks into February. Right. I think it's right toward the end of February. And I I'm going work in the beginning of February with ancient aliens on some really fascinating stories. And so for those who ask me all the time. Yes, ancient aliens is going forward. We're in the twelfth season. We're doing more exciting things this year and then conscious life expo. I love that. It's kind of one of those where it doesn't it remind you of being on a really busy New York City street L A. Yeah. It's vertical and a thousand things are happening all at once. And I think it's one of the more fun conferences, we've got contact in the desert coming up for me. Right. And and on at conscious life expo you. And I and others were on a call UFO panel together. We sure are. Are you are you going to be on this one? Who knows what they've got stacked up for us it conscious life. I know. I am I'm with you on that one. So I'm looking forward to it. Okay. Let's go to the phones. Now, they lineup Thomas in LA Hoya. Hey thomas. Hi, george. Thank you for taking my call. And I wanna thank you your staff and above all the audience to kind, Tom. It's just a miracle. Seven nights a week. And Linda, you do such magnificent research. Thank you. Thank you. And I think the coast audience was also very appreciative. I'm going to build upon well fifty years ago this year, we add the Apollo missions twenty five years ago this month in February of my team ninety four. There was a project Harmon time. Clementine project. What's a satellite? Not sponsored by NASA. And was sponsored by the department of defense strategic defense initiative. Right. I talked about it with Dr shoemaker the geologist who was overseeing what that clementine was going to do on the moon. And I had a fascinating interview with him in Baltimore. They it was so interesting that we had clementine and then remember all of those pieces of an asteroid that came in and hit Jupiter. Yes. And I was in Baltimore at the university where he and a bunch of geophysicist and others had come in. They were planetary scientists. And they were doing a presentation on what could happen when these asteroid pieces hit Joop. The shoemaker from shoemaker Levy, yes, right? Okay. I was sitting next to Levy and his mom, gene. Shoemaker was. Yeah. And and Dr shoemaker, and I ended up at that presentation and that live event with the impact on Jupiter talking about clementine. And I asked him I said. Aren't you going to photograph like every square inch of the moon and presented publicly because that was the original description of what clementine was going to do. And that it was going to go out to a very peculiar shaped asteroid and take photographs of it also and here it was where something strange. He had been jovial it'd been happy. Everything was it was we had broken open bottles of champagne because that was such a huge event they asteroids going into Jupiter and being able to get some photographs. And when I asked him that question. About isn't clementine supposed to show us every square inch of the moon, especially the back. He became visibly nervous. His voice lowered the became clipped. And I knew immediately. Well, there's something here this being hidden. And then the tragedy of his death. He was on a road in a car in Alice Springs, down in pine gap. Australia head on collision in the name of could there have been a head on collision with that wonderful scientists in that remote rural area. I've never believed. I just can't believe and I've often wondered that day when I asked him about the photographs on the back side of the moon, and he became so nervous. I think he will. He knew he knew that. There was an alien base. He knew that we knew that. There was an alien presence on the moon and on Mars and on the earth. I ask him other questions, and he became even more nervous and agitated and he was wonderful person. And I have always wondered why is he? Taken out because he knew so much you being his ashes, of course, were put on the moon by the lunar prospector. He's the only person who's ashes Ronnie celestial body outside of the planet. I think he knew a lot about I didn't know you knew him that. Well, well, in the sense of being at a conference in talking with him at in that way that you do with people when you're bonded by something. Like, this asteroid, these pieces colliding into Jupiter, and I had been sitting next to the the other Levi and his mom and where everybody I'm was a reporter. And there were reporters mixed up with the scientists. And it was just I remember that day. It was the way you wish the world were no secrets everything that's possible to learn and you're all talking and you are enjoying the. Intellectual stimulation. It was just oh God. It was so fun. That's why it's stood out so dramatically because we had all been so wonderfully. Everybody was so warm and happy and having champagne so for me to see him completely change one hundred eighty degrees. When I as a reporter asked him wasn't clementine supposed to photograph every inch of the moon and that we should be seeing the backside is moon. That's why I was asking where are the photos of the back side of the moon, his visible nervousness, and shutdown has to be related to the fact that there is by every account that I've ever heard from anybody who should know there is an alien or several basis on the back side of the moon and on the inside of the moon and abductees going back to the seventies member. The Brian Scott. Case. Right. Talked with Ryan Frazier who took Brian Scott down to Peru to go to the gate of the sun where he turned into this bowl tar character. And I've been to that time Brian Scott as Brian Scott had even at his home. He had done these weird voices and Thelma moss at the university of California was studying him. And there was a lot of interest in Brian Scott. Well, they go to Peru and Brian Frazier who got him down to Peru, and who kept in touch with me both before and after that trip said that one of the most, I guess vivid. Now, we just went through an abductee who is getting telepathy. It's coming in dreams organic being in his house. The abductions when he was a child, and then in the part, I mean talk about a lot of physical interaction. Well, Brian Scott had a lot of physical interaction and somehow because Brian freight Frazier. I still have huge notebook. So he brought to me and said, Linda, you have to go to Peru. That's why I went to Peru and spent a month he brought all these notebooks. All of these drawings from Brian Scott. And he said Brian has been shown the computers that are on the inside of the moon. The moon is a machine it was placed exactly where it is that there are aliens who have been controlling the earth, the solar system interactions with the sun and all of these things and that was in the nineteen seventies with Brian Scott today. What hardly anybody could relate to then. Then I think it's true. It's amazing story. And you remember the late. Remote viewer. Ingles swan in his book penetration wrote about structures on the far side of the moon that he saw in his remote viewing sessions. Right. And I think in talking with Ingo privately that I talked to him about Brian Scott because it was a period of time. I was working in New York, and I got together with Ingo and some of his friends often to talk about remote viewing. And that I believe that it was at his place where he lived in New York, and we had notebooks remote viewing notebooks. And I think he told me that he had remote viewed computers inside of them. And that was that's how we got to talking about. Brian, Scott mazing. Let's go to Terry in Modesto, California. Now, west of the Rockies. Hello terri. Hi, yes. Thanks for taking my call. You to say, thank you very much for studying some on this kind of because this is something I can't get anyone to believe. What happened? Well, I was stationed at Camp Lejeune North Carolina back in the fifties. And I did tell her type it's something similar to amnesia. Quite it's called. I don't know. I can find no one to steady it. You mean that you feel that you were working in teletype, you might did you have a clearance to be downloading something that might have been sensitive. And then after you did that that you found that something happened and you racist. I really know is I unwrapped grade one day. I went into the cafeteria. I don't remember this with my shoes on the wrong feet by close on backwards. That is on record. How how are you now years later the last one I had was in June of two thousand fifteen you have these episodes. You mean, yes, I was out from June ninth to June fifteen and while I was out. I saw Dr Edinburgh agency room at Kaiser hospital. He saw nothing at all wrong. And they released me that night. I'm supposed to come to my home. Don inside my home, top two people near me. And they said that my speech with a little bit different. But that was all, but I can get no one to halfway believe it, what do you think has happened to you? Kelly type in some way, another because UFO's were at the LSD Madison had just come out back in the fifty put you on that. I don't I do not know what kind of medicine, but one doctor said possibly with LSD. Well, one of the things about our past history. And I've been doing a tremendous amount of research about that and reporting is M K ultra and that was officially sanctioned by the CIA in nineteen fifty three and it had goals to learn how to have controlled amnesia. So that you could erase the memories of people who were getting highly classified information, and then you would be able to control their minds. So that they would forget it. And that there were so many things that were happening from fifty three on, and if you were working in was it, a military capacity or Western Union? Yes. No, it was a Camp Lejeune North Carolina. It was military in a military capacity. Probably what the M K ultra CIA research was doing was focusing in military units. Because once you sign on and you're working in the military. You're taking orders from the department of defense, and that is easier than to control and do that kind of research than it would be on a civilian population. Even though I think they did that as well. But you may have been one of the side victims whether anybody had any intent here here. I'll just boil it all down if they were trying to use frequencies, which I understood they were and they were trying to find frequencies in which they can manipulate amnesia. That's one goal. Implanting new memory. That's a second goal. Using sound to trigger. This is the Manchurian candidate. That's a third goal any and all of those in the fifties sixties, it was all experimentation. This was an in a strange way. If you've been playing with let's say a coral snake with a bunch of kids, it's sort of similar because you don't know what's gonna happen. They erased her didn't they well, this is the question could be one of the innocent victims of of ignorance. It was a time of ignorance in experimentation, and they finally learned enough and a lot. But I think that that on the Jon LeVine character and others where does manipulation tro program like M K ultra and being able to control amnesia and lay down false memories. And all of it. We know it has happened. It has happened over and over and over again in spades. She must have seen something Linda that came over that teletype machine. Maybe and that's the problem.

Brexit parallels with Australia

"Reporter Bridget Brennan has just arrived in our London bureau has a new Europe correspondent, and she's arrived at a very historic time for the United Kingdom. The parliament will soon finally begin crucial debates on the bricks at deal negotiated by the British Prime Minister, Theresa may. Now, Bridget's new appointment means she's wrapped up time as a domestic correspondent covering aboriginal interest-rate islander communities as the first national indigenous affairs correspondent she traveled the country for nearly two us listening to the concerns of indigenous people also at a momentous time for the nation. And although the Brexit debate might seem a million miles away from reporting from remote communities, she's actually found some parallels. Now that I'm living in London waking the bay. This is often how my morning start and my evenings and increase the payments. My other nations remaining in their projects. Let's endless coverage of these mixed Brexit debate, which is split the United Kingdom, and tens of millions of its residents, the bricks stories often described as complex and maybe dense. But of course, it's vitally important for the world's fifth largest economy. And this is a palace struggle fueled. By the concerns of Brit sued felt that that bane forgotten model ladies in London in Europe. And I heard about that from an Hillyard who we mating payback this week a couple of hours north of London. Virginia's passing over person. So I that's what I see. I wasn't here in London for the build up to the Brexit referendum, which was such historic moment for the world, the total number of casting faith of leaf was eighty two thousand much of our reporting now is on the debate over the Deel to get Britain out of the European Union. But this week I went back to the brakes at heartland Bain, remembering my time reporting on the late up to another push for a referendum. Judicial owners invited dozens of original and tourist Rhode Island nations onto their land monitoring, Allah one day, welcome these in the restatement from the hot was a defining moment in indigenous affairs, it's been a push for a referendum to establish a first nations advisory body to really advise our politicians on policies to close the gap and boost prosperity for indigenous people, but it was swiftly rejected. You might remember by the government, and I can't help. But think of some of the Brexit voters who now feel that they've owed to leave. The European Union has been badly executed by British politicians as indigenous phase correspondent I had an intimate and illuminating window into our aboriginal and Torres Strait onto communities and this much to be proud of. Celebrate learn your culture as well. And what is significance of these side? It's such a beautiful area is ceremony site for your clan. Yeah. Was ceremony clan. So many plates, still so much despair. I've learned that really made me sad in that role. And they're still too many people who feel forgotten in central Australia in the community of law rambler. I spoke to families worried about the high levels of uranium in their water. Kids kids need fresh water. They need to have good water. It's just the basic human Roydon and north of Alice Springs in Senate race a residents with devastated of the quality of the housing and fighting for better living conditions three quarters of households are suing climbing, they waited use for emergency repays on the houses.

Kaleen Guinn says, they're aware that at times they could be doing a better job of this is Bill Turner. Has this suggestion Luther know how to do the job is children family services that should get people like us grandmothers to do the job, you know or were together, but it's not all bleak. I'm told by schilling Campbell, the mother we met at the beginning of the story. We're at an all day Australian rules, football tournament in our springs. She has four sons and all play football. They're really good too. Campbell did not want kids to grow up in a violent home and she didn't want to risk losing them. She knew she had to do something to keep a family together. So she enlisted the women in her family to help her make her husband see how wrong his violent behavior was. My husband actually turn things around knowing that I needed he support as well. Campbell is part of a women's group called tunnel. JIRA that's pushing local and federal government to fund family support services and support aboriginal mothers. So they can end the cycle of violence. She says her husband has seen the light. Now he goes around talking to other men. The guys at the communities talking about domestic violence meant Stein hit their partners, then not real men's. If they did that real men's stand up and support their wives, real men's always be equal with the partner. One mother cont do it alone. Campbell says. So she an all the community organizes building the support. Networks. So other families can stay together to for the world, the puffiness Alice Springs, Australia.

"I'm Marco werman you're with the world where a co, production of the BBC World Service PRI and WG be h here in Boston. Every country has an ugly side to its history. So it is with Australia and its so-called stolen generation. The name comes from the Half-century-long policy of taking aboriginal children from their homes and placing them with white families. The practice stopped in the nineteen seventies, but now some aboriginal people are wondering if it starting up. Again, this time they're talking about social service workers, removing children from their homes. The government says they're dealing with violence and abuse within these families, but some say, the government is risking another stolen generation. Tepa Fernandez has our story from the city of Alice Springs, Sherwin Campbell on a central ustralian mother of five. Campbell has a shy smile, and she grips a Cup of tea tightly as we talk watch. Violence all the time. If it's not my mom and dad would be family members and then it happened to her. Yep. I was victim physical and verbal abuse from husband with me going through domestic violence myself at the end of the day, you having violence and at the end of the day can break up families and it's not a good thing pretty daunting for the kids as well. One horrific case of family violence made national headlines earlier this year when a two year old aboriginal go was raped in her home also asking questions about how the child was allowed to remind and a house vice. I was well known to police and child protection agencies with devastated an angry. One resident told score us before I could have or would have stolen that child myself. It's a loaded issue here. Did you catch that? The resident wanted to steal the child to keep us safe? That's a blunt reference to a shameful pot of white Australia's treatment of aboriginal people when authorities literally did. Steal aboriginal children and put them in group homes or place them with white families. In two thousand eight, the prime minister issued a national apology to what's called the stolen generation. Yet a case like the rape of the toddler lead, even some aboriginal leaders to call for more aggressive actions in removing children from violent hones his an aboriginal councilwoman from Alice Springs just into price talking to Sky News Australia. Soon after the rape, this situation has has become really quite bad. And you know this stigma around a second stolen generation, I believe is one of the main reasons why these children are of what their fights with because we haven't intervened when we should have to save the laws of these children feel angry and said that all these is not not all aboriginal people that like that. Why ONA Palmer is from an aboriginal community near Alice Springs. You can just say that every people avoid and condo. The children way like we know how to grow our kids up as Pomme and I chat has six year old daughter is curious about my microphone. So I handed to her Henshilwood's it at her grandmother. What's your name? Kayla. And what's the school go to. Kilda's Graham l'aquila's grandmother, Felicity Hayes is a big part of her life. She helps teach l'aquila a mother tongues. You say there are Narender under. buck. Speaks three languages. She speaks English, wister, Narender and Jarrah learning language and culture is key to what Palmer means when she says, we know how to grow our kids up. We worried a better yell children's through and they get taken away from us because we don't know what could happen to them behind closed doors. Palm has had first-hand experience. Authorities removed her niece and nephew due to family violence in the home a decade ago, they took her nephew hundreds of miles away and placed him in another state, and he was staying in a farm for nine years. How did you find him? He found us. Rollaway CASA pop was happening to him beyond closed. Does. So it decided to make a run Costa would say bad things to him and lock him up in the bedrooms. And say that he's family doesn't exist that he was just aboard that got taken away from a drunken person. They managed to get custody of his sister and raise her, but it's been traumatizing for all of them even now that they have their nephew back. I wanted to ask the department of family and community services about the case, but they declined to talk to me all aboriginal communities affirm that kids have to be Saif, Tim island heads, the largest aboriginal child protection agency in the state of New South Wales.
