Over 200 eminent Australians across the fields of law, health, academia and the arts are calling on the Federal Government to heed the pleas by Indigenous Elders for an immediate end to the discriminatory policies of the 2007 NT Intervention and legislation that followed.

In Melbourne last evening, launching the official statement by the group known as Concerned Australians, a number of Australian academics and Indigenous Elders gathered at the Melbourne Law School lecture theatre to make their plea public.
