Sovereignty

When and how did Britain claim Sovereignty over Australia?

What is extraordinary about the British claim of Sovereignty over the eastern half of New Holland and Van Diemen's Land is the extent of the area it covered. Even for a Radical Title, which is a term used for how European Powers could claim precedence over certain lands, to negotiate Rentals, Purchases or Treaties ahead of other European Powers, this claim went far wider than the lands ostensibly "discovered" by Cook. On top of this, this Radical Title was then coupled with the decision to give the British Crown full beneficial ownership. [node:read-more:link]

Dispossession of First Nations maintained by archaic land tenure system

Dispossession of First Nations maintained by archaic land tenure system  - PILLIGA Coal seam gas and FEUDALISM

The announcement on 30 September 2020 of the approval for the Santos coal seam gas extraction in the Pilliga reflects the many ways the colonising power overrides First Nations, this time it's the Gomeroi/Kamilaroi Nation. 850 gas wells are proposed in the Pilliga, where our ancient Stories are now threatened in the place we call Girraween, Place of Flowers - created for the purpose of ensuring that we have a sustainable seedbank for our ecological systems within the eastern states.

'Over Cooked': Is Captain Cook the source of British sovereignty in Australia?

The story of Lieutenant James Cook and British Sovereignty over Australia has been overcooked. At no time on any of Cook's three voyages to the Pacific was he intending to go anywhere near New Holland. He did chart the east coast of New Holland in 1770, but that was not part of his Instructions. The whole story about Cook and his association with the claim of British Sovereignty over the lands now known as Australia is retrospective, rather than consistent with the events of the time. Cook's initial "mission" was to get to Tahiti to study the Transit of Venus, and to then look for the fabled Great Southern Land, Terra Australis. [node:read-more:link]

Colonial fraud against First Nations and Peoples: understanding 'non est factum'

Colonial fraud against First Nations and Peoples: understanding 'non est factum'

Colonial law is a law that cheats all our Peoples out of our ownership of all our lands, water and natural resources and ownership of all of our native flora and fauna, which are our families through our Totemic Law rules.
Native Title laws keep us outside in the drought without shade and we are burning up, just like our native bush. The 'two bob black trackers' control all negotiations and dictate what they say our people should get and agree to. [node:read-more:link]

The Code: Pathway to total assimilation of First Nations Peoples

The Code

Join the dots between the current Recognition campaign; Constitutional inclusion; Native Title Act's Preamble; Australia's obligations to the UN and the CERD; Special Measures; the Treaty processes and the insistence that First Nations Peoples are called 'Indigenous Australians' ... then there is the Victorian treaty legislation that introduces itself by stating that the people the treaty is for is Victorian Aborigines. If we are to reach the point where proper treaties are negotiated then we must look at some of the serious ramification that will flow. [node:read-more:link]
