Yesterday I walked through the Alice Springs Mall, stopped at a few tourist and souvenir shops and bought a few postcards. One group of postcards that caught my eye was those with pictures of naked or semi-naked Aboriginal children.
You can buy these cards in many outlets in the Alice and across the country -- souvenir shops, backpacker hostels, newsagents, Australia Post, hotels. And if you are too slack to walk down the road, you can get them on the net -- have a look for yourself here
The release by NSW Attorney-General John Hatzistergos of his Government’s Report of the Child Pornography Working Party
last month raised questions about what is child pornography in the strict sense. The postcards are a prime example.
