Community-controlled: for the people, by the people – Stephen Wallace

I’ve seen many changes over the years, and somewhere along the way we lost our voice as community people.

It’s time now to structure ourselves around community making the decisions for ourselves, and by ourselves.

It’s ok to ask for support but not to take control out of the hands of the people.

Taking part in Pama Futures means the opportunity to start making decisions for and by the community.

This has been a long time coming. There’s been a lot of promises, but nothing has happened

We’re asking for more employment opportunities for our young people.

What we really need to do is go back to the drawing board and produce more jobs, start from scratch again.

The only thing we’ve got is land, now the next step is to put things in place for the land, that’s what we’ve got to work on.

The goal is to get all the different community bodies together at the table so the council will know which direction we’re heading in, so we’re all on the one level. This will help drive us forward.
