Representatives from three Aboriginal homelands in Australia's Northern Territory have called for more consultation with the Federal Government on policies affecting indigenous people. They've just returned from visiting Canberra, where they raised concerns about legislation known as "Stronger Futures". They say the policy is pushing Aboriginal people to move away from their traditional homelands into towns for work and education.

12 months ago Amnesty International reported the legislation was stripping Aboriginal people of the right to remain on their ancestral lands. - Source: Radio Australia, 24 August 2012 - ABC Presenter: Melanie Arnost - Radio Australia
