Decolonisation

No Independence Day to celebrate! Australia hasn't decolonised from Britain - yet

No Independence Day to celebrate when Australia decolonised from Britain - yet!

Unlike most other Nations around the world there is no day when Australia can identify it was given its independent status free of the sovereignty of the British Crown with a new constitution. There has been no day when Australia decolonised so that there is no longer a constitutional obligation for the British Crown (that is the Queen and/or her agents, the Governor-General and Governors) to place their signatures on legislations passed by the parliaments and thereby assent and make them legal. The Governor-General is still Commander-in-chief of the army, navy and air force. [node:read-more:link]

Deceptive trickery of Native Title processes

Deceptive trickery of Native Title processes

A crime against our humanity is the way the Native Title process has been manipulated to further dispossess First Nations. Parliamentary legislation and 'Native Title specialist lawyers' are in lockstep with the colonial power to rob Aboriginal people of their inherent rights and responsibilities to uphold the oldest continuing living culture on the planet. Here on this island continent, now known as Australia, those wielding colonial power continue to promote Native Title in positive terms, well aided by the mainstream media, but the reality is a treacherous story of theft by trickery.

NSW Bar Association calls for a new approach to Aboriginal imprisonment

ABORIGINAL INCARCERATION

The Bar Association of NSW's submission to a Law Reform Commission inquiry into First Nations incarceration calls for a new approach to sentencing which takes into account the deprivation and disadvantage inherent in an individual's Aboriginal background. The association also calls for an end to mandatory sentences, which make it impossible for courts to make any allowance for such disadvantage in their decisions. The rate at which Aboriginal people end up in jail is appalling and in NSW last year Aboriginal people were 3 per cent of the population, but 24 per cent of the prison population.

Sovereign Treaties under International Law

SOVEREIGN TREATIES UNDER INTERNATIONAL LAW

Sovereign First Nations hold the Law of the Land, the continental common which has never been taken away. No-one can legally take a country through genocide and massacre. Commonwealth of Australia rules in right of the Crown of Britain, that's why all laws are assented to by the Governor-general and State laws are assented to by Governors, representing HRH Elizabeth II.Commonwealth of Australia does not have its own sovereignty but depends on Britain's sovereignty. Treaties under international law are between Sovereign Nations. [node:read-more:link]

Makarrata v Treaties

Makarrata v Treaty

The most strategic move for First Nations, at this time of an imploding Commonwealth government wracked by illegal parliamentarians who hold dual citizenship in breach of the Constitution, is to rise up and rebuild the governance, independence, cultural and economic development of one's own Nation and then for our First Nations to treaty with each other first, just as the Northern Basin Aboriginal Nations (NBAN) have done, demonstrating a way forward. The more First Nations treaty amongst themselves, the more the writing is on the wall for the colonial government ruling in right of the British Crown. [node:read-more:link]
