Style -> stubbify[edit]

Reading this article, I was struck by the unusual writing style, and googled for the first sentence of the article. I found that most of the article was lifted from the Royal Commission into Aboriginal Deaths in Custody. This is a publication of the Australian government, and I have no idea what its status is with respect to copyright. I suspect it might be in the public domain, but I don't know this. In either case, Outstation movement should either cite its sources, or be rewritten so it's not a direct lift from the commission report. --Skud 00:52, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Update: Here's the copyright notice from the front of the Royal Commission Report (http://www.austlii.edu.au/au/special/rsjproject/rsjlibrary/rciadic/national/vol3/1.html): "This work is copyright. Apart from any use as permitted under the Copyright Act 1968, no part may be reproduced by any process without written permission from the Australian Government Publishing Service. Requests and inquiries concerning reproduction and rights should be addressed to the Manager, AGPS Press, GPO Box 84, Canberra ACT 2601." --Skud 01:01, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

Have started a REALLY rough stub of a new article at Outstation_movement/Temp. --Skud 01:07, 4 May 2006 (UTC)

NT Emergency Response[edit]

This article is relevant to the Northern Territory National Emergency Response - considerable expansion is required. Paul foord (talk) 10:21, 21 March 2008 (UTC)
