In the report, submitted on August 27, 2018, to the 39th session of the UN Human Rights Council, Tauli-Corpuz raises her concern over the unfolding of a “global crisis.” She highlights the correlation between the increase in violence, harassment, and legal actions ...

How Native Title backfires – Big Time

How Native Title backfires – Big Time

In the last two years I have been inundated with complaints from First Nations Peoples throughout Australia about the operations of Native Title Services organisations, that are supposed to represent First Nations' interests, only to find the opposite is happening. The bulldozing of homes on 1 July 2018 in the marginalised Mallingbar community on Yawaru country at Kennedy Hill, Broome, Western Australia, to make way for a tourist lookout, is one of the latest examples.

Aboriginal First Nations challenging the Great Divide in a David and Goliath struggle

Australia's legitimacy as a sovereign state cannot and will not be achieved while our First Nations Peoples continue to challenge its sovereignty. The ongoing deceit and treachery that is occurring in our First Nations' struggle is fuelled by the intent of the occupying colonising power to gain legitimacy by stealth. Land Councils are challenging our people asserting their sovereign position, by telling them their sovereignty status is a 'load of rubbish', and governments are propagating coercive lies to our people about the beneficial outcomes of constitutional recognition and/or Treaty(s).
