Shame file: Haven Backpackers Resort Hostel, Alice Springs

Hostel facing lawsuit after telling Aboriginal women to leave: the 16 women and children had travelled 300 kilometres from Yuendumu to Alice Springs to train as lifeguards for their community’s new swimming pool. They checked into the Haven Backpackers resort, but a short time later the manager told them that guests already staying there had complained of being scared.

Your headline du jour, courtesy of the Herald Sun: ‘Raped’ nurse may return to work I notice that it has hastily been switched to “Nurse in rape case may return to work”.
