Les Malezer needs to be called to answer for a major fraud ...

... re UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

In a media release Michael Anderson, Convenor of the Sovereign Union movement said the opposition to the Act of Recognition carried to Commonwealth Parliament by the Sovereign Union protest on 13 February 2013 is very important as it highlights the First Nations peoples continuing resistance to the dictatorial traits of Australian governments, but we must also be very mindful of what it is that we are fighting for as sovereign entities, who have never ceded our sovereignty.

After the protest the Sovereign Union served formal notice of our opposition to the Act of Recognition to the Queen, via the Governor-General, the Prime Minister, all members of the Federal Parliament with copies to all member states of the United Nations.

National Congress 'Tent Embassy' event on 26th is not ours

First Nations sovereignty activist, Michael Ghillar Anderson, makes clear that an event being organised by the National Congress of Australia's First Peoples (NCAFP) for 26 January 2013 at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra, is NOT an Aboriginal Embassy initiative.

He said that he recognises the Congress's efforts regarding some reforms but Les Malezer and Congress are publicly supportive of the token Constitutional reform. Read more about National Congress 'Tent Embassy' event on 26th is not ours

The grassroots complaints on the Referendum Council Convention processes

Video Gallery: The political confrontation that occurred at the National Convention was caused by the very apparent stacking of the meeting by the organisers (Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders Studies, AIATSIS), no doubt supported by the Referendum Council with a budget of over $800 million.

What was visually clear during the whole process was the apparent divide between members of the Referendum Council. Read more about The grassroots complaints on the Referendum Council Convention processes
