Yalata, South Australia, Australia - Unknown arsonists destroyed a police station in the southwestern Aboriginal town of Yalata early on Tuesday morning. Damage has been estimated at $500,000 Australian (~$400,000 US). Australia's neoconservative federal government has been recently denounced for a newly legislated policy of intervention in indigenous communities aimed at criminalizaing poverty and seizing communal lands.
