No picnic at Hanging Rock: Campaign to recognise Aboriginal past rather than 'white myth' - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation)

No picnic at Hanging Rock: Campaign to recognise Aboriginal past rather than 'white myth' - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): It is 50 years since the publication of Joan Lindsay's novel Picnic at Hanging Rock, and more than 40 years since Peter Weir's iconic film, told the story of school girls and their teacher going missing during a picnic at Hanging Rock on Valentine's Day in 1900, and never being seen again.

The Miranda Must Go campaign has been created by PhD student Amy Spiers, who argues that while many Australians are familiar with the story Picnic at Hanging Rock — and the character of missing school girl Miranda — hardly anyone was familiar with the Indigenous history of the area.

"The main goal of the campaign is to make people think about how obsessively we retell the story of Picnic at Hanging Rock, which is essentially a fiction of vanished white school girls," she said.

"While on the other hand we actively ignore the removal and displacement of Aboriginal people that actually took place at Hanging Rock."

Indigenous suicide: Struggling communities get $10 million funding boost - ABC News (Australian Broadcasting Corporation): The project, trialled in Western Australia last year, will be expanded into the Northern Territory and South Australia this year, with the rest of the country to follow in 2018.

Indigenous Affairs Minister Nigel Scullion will announce the funding on the remote Groote Eyelandt in the Northern Territory today.

"Every suicide is a tragedy and the effects on tight-knit Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities are often more profound, contributing to the clusters of suicide and self-harm that we see," he said in a statement.

Rashid Khalidi: Obama's Condemnation of Israeli Occupation Doesn't Match His Last 8 Years in Office | Democracy Now!

Rashid Khalidi: Obama's Condemnation of Israeli Occupation Doesn't Match His Last 8 Years in Office | Democracy Now!: During Wednesday’s press conference, President Obama warned that the expansion of Israeli settlements was making a two-state solution impossible. "I don’t see how this issue gets resolved in a way that maintains Israel as both Jewish and a democracy," Obama said, "because if you do not have two states, then, in some form or fashion, you are extending an occupation. Functionally, you end up having one state in which millions of people are disenfranchised and operate as second-class occupant—or residents. You can’t even call them 'citizens' necessarily." We get response from Rashid Khalidi, Edward Said professor of Arab studies at Columbia University. He’s the author of several books; his most recent is titled "Brokers of Deceit: How the U.S. Has Undermined Peace in the Middle East."
