Not doing nothing - Oct 29
I was disgusted by the racist messages on both the outside and inside walls of the Three Rivers Aboriginal Art Space. Your editorial reminds us of the oft quoted 'All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men (or women) do nothing'.
I feel confident that I speak on behalf of good men and women of Lismore City Council and of our broader community when I state that these terrible scrawlings DO NOT represent our views and we will not remain silent.
We are appalled by this expression of racism and we say to the gallery's artists and to the wider Aboriginal community that we will not only condemn such acts of hate but we will work to stamp them out wherever they occur.
