Uluru and trouble

As everywhere else Australia has its fair share of social problems. Here is an article about the elders in Central Australia threatening to close Uluru (or Ayers Rock as it was formerly known)to tourists as a protest over government interventions in Aboriginal communities in an effort to tackle addiction, widespread child abuse and other social ills. It would be a shame if tourists could no longer see the big rock and it would of course harm the Australian tourism industry.
