Gathering of Nations Canberra 21 & 22 November 2015

In the two days of the Gathering of Nations the 150 participants, delegates and observers from all over Australia, were presented with research and information in respect to the key issues facing First Nations Peoples today and the progress to date in the assertion of First Nations sovereignty at a national level.

First Nations Treaty(ies), Sovereignty and an Australian Republic

Former PM Paul Keating

Former PM Paul Keating's foray back into Aboriginal politics where he talks up the need for a Treaty with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and describes it as the 'unfinished business of the nation' is pleasing to the ears of some of us older fighters who sees the Recognition campaign as trap.

This will be a major political and legal fight, but it is our future for not just us, but for our children and our grandchildren. The Sovereign Union governance is made up of nominated representatives from each Nation that has made their Unilateral Declaration of Independence. These representatives come together once a year to discuss all relevant political, legal, cultural, economic and social issues that confront them. [node:read-more:link]

Australia is committing genocide on a scale unequalled anywhere in the modern world

The closure of more than half of WA's 274 remote communities is another example of how the government and Big Mining work hand in hand to steal Aboriginal land without compensation. There is a thinly veiled agenda to remove Aboriginal people from their homes so the mining industry can have easy access to land ... We are now reaching a climax in our struggle for rights and freedoms and time to take a deep breath, exhale slowly and look around at our situation with clarity. [node:read-more:link]
