NT: Standing up for communities

Just before Christmas 2020, ACL supporters in Darwin joined other advocates and organisations to oppose the application for a giant Dan Murphy’s megastore-liquor barn within walking distance of three dry aboriginal communities.

Comments on social media following the announcement included:
