UNITY - "Unless our Peoples come together and resist as one, all that will remain will be isolated pockets of liberation fighters being oppressed by the assimilated."

Statement of historical facts on the NAC's 1980s Treaty framework

Many of our People are now engaging in and considering Treaties with Australian State and Territory governments. Initial stages for a Treaty with the Commonwealth government and the National Aboriginal Conference was agreed to by the Fraser Liberal Coalition government in 1979, after Kevin Gilbert and others set up the National Aboriginal Government on Capital Hill, Canberra (before the new Parliament House was constructed), and called for a Sovereign Treaty and Bill of Rights.

Sovereign Voices - v - Co-Design Voice

Sovereign Union Media Release

An insight into the proposed 'Indigenous voice co-design process' based on assimilation, which is in opposition to First Nations voices on the assertion of sovereignty.

Entrapment by the Statement from the Heart

Noel Pearson with the Uluru Statement signed at the convention but the wording arrived later

First Nations' affairs are in a deep abyss because there is a lack of common purpose, fueled by misinformation and spin, which leads to the risk of entrapment into an assimilation push that negates our First Nations sovereignty. The First Nations Voice to Parliament clause will be "non justiciable" so if the government refuses to listen to the 'Voice' or constitutes the Voice in a way that's not democratic or whatever there will be no recourse to the courts. It quite literally creates no constitutional rights: "Modest and substantive ". [node:read-more:link]
