The strategy to sell-off Aboriginal land and community-owned housing has now been set-up in the Budget. See Kevin Andrew's statement:
"PRACTICAL STRATEGY FOR INDIGENOUS ECONOMIC INDEPENDENCE: ... an Indigenous Economic Independence Strategy. The strategy will form a key part of the Howard Government’s policy initiatives to promote economic development for Indigenous Australians. ...A whole-of-government approach will be used to address a number of impediments to Indigenous Australians achieving true economic independence. “This strategy will set forward a platform for advancing levels of Indigenous participation in the labour force through employment, self-employment, and business development, and look at the way Indigenous assets, including land and home ownership, can best be utilised,” Mr Andrews said."

So there you have it: the carve-up of Aboriginal community assets a.k.a. impediments!
