NT Government response
The NT Chief Minister, Michael Gunner (pictured) has responded to the Aharreng communiqué of 21/6/2017, which calls on the Commonwealth and NT governments to negotiate a comprehensive agreement with us.
In his response letter dated 21/8/2017, the Chief Minister focussed almost entirely on our reference to the apparent opportunities presented by the Ammaroo phosphate deposit.
We have subsequently drawn his attention back to his Government's commitment to supporting self-determination, local decision-making, treaties and empowering and partnering with Aboriginal people.
Let the rhetoric be matched by deeds.
