What can be done about Don Dale detention centre?

The Northern Territory  election will be called in August. There will be an opportunity for the voters of the Territory to pass judgement on the conditions in Don Dale.

 The Northern Territory legislature: when change can be brought about

Let us all hope that the opposition Labor Party has the guts to stand up with set of policies that provide a humane alternative to the current repressive penal regime.

The election could give the Northern Territory electorate a clear choice and demonstrate that in a democracy it is possible for voters to make a difference in situations like Don Dale. It is a golden opportunity because the conditions in the detention centre have been exposed just before an election and the conditions will be fresh and the voters minds.
