Call for information on NSW Land Council election irregularities

NSW Land Council Elections

Reports of deceased names used and Aboriginal people have been turned away from polling places in various places because their names are no longer on the membership roll despite having voted in the 2011 NSW Aboriginal Land Council election. Potential voters were turned away. We need to establish a register of how many people were actually turned away on the voting day and other irregularities. In this regard people can contact the Sovereign Union Facebook message system and tell your story. Read more about Call for information on NSW Land Council election irregularities

Media Release

Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara (APY) Peoples have the potential to operate as an independent sovereign Nation state by virtue of the fact that they have an entry permit system (equivalent to a visa) and they have veto powers in respect to applicants seeking to come into their country.

Anderson responds to Malezer's condemnatory 'GLOBAL ALERT'

Ghillar Nichael Anderson

Ghillar Nichael Anderson seems to have put Les Malezer's nose well out of joint when he showed his ignorance of the historical factors behind the NAC's original participation in 1981. 'Clearly his attempt to discredit me at the international level through his 'Global Alert' is something I would expect of the government and not a co-chair of an Aboriginal body'. Anderson said. '... it shows the political divide between 'National Congress' and the grassroots sovereignty movement'. Read more about Anderson responds to Malezer's condemnatory 'GLOBAL ALERT'
