We can stop the shut down
To Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott and Minister for Indigenous Affairs Nigel Scullion:
More than 40,000 years of connection to the land is not a lifestyle choice. We call on you to continue to fund essential services to remote communities in Western Australia and to restore funding to frontline services under the Indigenous Advancement Strategy.

The government has been forced to back track on it’s most controversial policy ideas, like the medicare co-payment, due to sustained public pressure. Prime Minister Abbott has thrust this issue in the spotlight with his insensitive comment saying living in remote communities is a lifestyle choice! Let’s use this moment to scrap the cuts.
Sign the petition now to stop the cuts to Aboriginal communities. When we reach 50,000 signatures, Avaaz will deliver the campaign to parliament together with indigenous elders from affected communities to bring the true stories of these cuts direct to decision makers.
