Aboriginal resources - newsletters & mailing lists
To stay up-to-the-minute with Indigenous (and refugee) affairs as reported by Australia’s print media, radio and TV, subscribe to this one.
It’s free and compiled as email by activists.
You’d get between about 8 and 15 clippings daily.
Ask Trudy Bray to put you on the distribution list. As happily as she’ll put you on it, she’ll take you off it again if you wish. It might be an idea to give it a run shortly before a trip to Oz.
Trudy writes: “These postings are provided to the individual members of the group without permission from the copyright owners, for purposes of criticism, comment, scholarship and research under the “fair use” provisions of the Federal copyright laws.”

WGAR (Working Group for Aboriginal Rights) in Australia offers a free newsletter, WGAR News.
WGAR News monitors the media, including alternative media, focusing on the Northern Territory intervention, the Aboriginal sovereignty movement, Aboriginal rights issues and upcoming Aboriginal rights events around Australia.
The newsletter publishes information and opinions from a wide range of sources and includes media releases, opinion pieces, news items, audio, videos and events.
Check out a sample WGAR newsletter.
It sorts them by state, nation or language group, name and category. A national calendar of Aboriginal events is also offered.
A monthly newsletter, Black Mail, offers an overview of what’s on Australia-wide, job and training offers, and features one entry of their directory.

Most articles have links to the website of the service offered or other world wide resources. Australien-Info has existed since November 1997 and is published by the DLP Software and Reiseservice GmbH.
