Indigenous Australians: Little Children are Sacred report

Released earlier this week, the Little Children are Sacred report reveals widespread abuse of indigenous women and children in the Northern Territory. On June 22, the Federal Government declared it a national emergency. A media release from the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Mal Brough, outlined the action plan, which some journalists have labelled “draconian”.

The media coverage of this issue has been extensive, with analysis from both supporters and protesters of the government’s plan.
