US Media Failing Indigenous Peoples, as The Guardian Succeeds
Thank you to The Guardian in the UK for this coverage below -- since the New York Times and other media in the US seem to have trouble making it out the front door to cover Indigenous Issues, at the UN in New York, and elsewhere across the Americas. The Guardian has succeeded while the US media has failed. -- Brenda Norrell, Censored News

Australia: The Secret Country Again Wages War on its Own People
By John Pilger, Global Research '

Australia has again declared war on its Indigenous people, reminiscent of the brutality that brought universal condemnation on apartheid South Africa.  Aboriginal people are to be driven from homelands where their communities have lived for thousands of years. In Western Australia, where mining companies make billion dollar profits exploiting Aboriginal land, the state government says it can no longer afford to “support” the homelands.
Vulnerable populations, already denied the basic services most Australians take for granted, are on notice of dispossession without consultation, and eviction at gunpoint. Yet again, Aboriginal leaders have warned of “a new generation of displaced people” and “cultural genocide”.
