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.

Mr Anderson, spokesperson for Sovereign Union emphasises that the NCAFP is a government funded organisation that has not gained the majority support of grassroots First Nations people.

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

Australia doesn't deserve a seat on United Nations”

2012: Michael Anderson, the surviving member of the founders of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra, wrote to the United Nations urging it reject Australia's bid for a temporary seat on the Security Council because of Australia's treatment of Indigenous Australians. In his letter Mr Anderson said Australia was a colonial power and in breach of international conventions in its treatment of its Indigenous people. Mr Anderson also criticised the Federal Government for its policies on asylum seekers.

Mabo judges perverted the course of justice

Eddie Mabo

While the 1992 Mabo judgement was a major milestone in Aboriginal history, we must remember that the judges in this case presented the same cowardice as Justice Blackburn in the Millirrpum Gove case in the 1970s.

In the Gove case, the court gave much weight to the evidence presented by anthropologist Ronald Berndt who coined the phrase, "the Aborigines don't own the land, the land owns them" or words to that effect, thus resigning our people to forever being part of the natural flora and fauna of this country. It must also be stated that the Gove matter was not presented with the 1872 Pacific islanders Protection Act as amended in 1875.

In the Gove matter Justice Blackburn was presented with enough evidence to permit him to make the same conclusions as did the High Court in Mabo but failed to do so. I think this was because of the extent of uncertainty the decision would have presented the Australian state, territory and federal governments in respect to land rights for the white population.
