NEWCASTLE Yowies won the Koori Knockout rugby league carnival (pictured above) on the weekend but what about the Aboriginal elders and disabled who were told to find alternative parking?

Security had the public road cut off to the ground.

I told them of my disability and could not walk.

I sat in the gutter because I could not move.

There was one man who'd had a leg amputated and was forced to make his way from the dam all the way down that hill.

This is disgusting.

I think something should be done to correct it for next year.

Organisers say they have a Deadly Choices Program: make this a priority choice for all those elders and disabled who were turned away.
