You may know True Arrow Events as the company that first brought Canadian clinical psychologist and professor Dr Jordan B Peterson to Australia early in 2018. It began a bumper year of other alternative media personalities visiting our shores, including Lauren Southern, Stefan Molyneux and Nigel Farage. The event was such a success that Peterson returned to the land down under in February under his own touring brand. He had the honour the second time around of being protested by the Campaign Against Racism and Fascism and other subgroups of Melbourne’s Antifa movement.
This year they are promoting local talent with Indigenous Alice Springs Councillor Jacinta Nampijinpa Price, who has become a star of the conservative movement for expressing opposition to the “Change the Date” that would see the Australia day January 26th date moved to a different day in an attempt to make amends for historical events relating to European colonialism. Price has defended her beliefs in the media on shows such as ABC’s “The Drum” and “Tonightly with Tom Ballard.” As a result, the so called anti-racist left have called her “coconut” and a “race traitor.”
She most recently ran as the Country Liberal Party candidate for the Northern Territory seat of Lingiari in the 2019 federal election. Despite it being a safe Labor seat since its creation in 2001 Price campaigned hard throughout the large electorate. She managed to achieve a swing of 2.7% but was unable to unseat Labor incumbent Warren Snowden. Post-election she has expressed caution about the push for Indigenous recognition in Australia’s constitution, arguing it won’t solve the many present causes of Indigenous disadvantage. She has also recently become the Director of Indigenous Program at the Australian libertarian thinktank “Centre for Independent Studies.”
Price has had an impressive career in media before entering politics, she runs a not for profit company “Yangapi Productions” which produces content for early childhood audiences in regional Australia, including Yamba’s Playtime and has toured Australia as a musician with her own original songs for 20 years.
The tour has been titled “Mind the Gap: Bridging the Indigenous Divide” and will be kicking off on August 26th in Adelaide. The tour differentiates itself from previous speaking events by visiting venues in smaller cities. The schedule is as follows:
Adelaide (August 26th)
Mildura (August 28th)
Bendigo (August 30th)
Melbourne (September 1st)
Albury-Wodonga (September 2nd)
Canberra (September 3rd)
Sydney (September 7th)
Newcastle (September 9th)
Coffs Harbour (September 10th)
Brisbane (September 12th)
Toowoomba (September 13th)
The event organisers told The Unshackled that they have received multiple threats from left wing individuals and groups and are taking security very seriously in certain cities. Past events have been well managed by police who have kept opposing groups separate from each other, with the exception of the Milo Yiannopolous Troll Academy tour of November 2017.
Tickets can still be bought for most cities so if you want the chance to see Jacinta Price live follow this link: https://www.truearrowevents.com/jacinta-price
