Referendum Council Round 2

It is time that the members of this newly formed Referendum Council focus their attention on conducting true and meaningful discussions with the grassroots communities. There is a desperate need to have town hall meetings to hear the reasoning of the opposition's position to First Nations people being included in the Australian Constitution.
It is our inherent right to choose our own national identity, our own political and economic affiliations, and to exercise our freedoms. To be denied this is a clear violation of all Human Rights. [node:read-more:link]

Communiqué from Gathering of Nations 21 & 22 November 2015

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. We very clearly articulated the internationally accepted process for assertion of sovereignty by Nations and Peoples subjugated by a foreign power and expanded on the need for decolonisation.

Timely Gathering of Nations this weekend in Canberra 21 & 22 November

Aborigional entrepreneurial opportunity

Australia's facade of creating the illusion of compensation for redressing past imperial colonial acts through the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Act 2008 as amended, in which redress for dispossession was claimed, has at last been exposed. The UN Human Rights Committee in Geneva and 110 Member States have recently united in their condemnation of Australia’s Human Rights performance in respect of its treatment of refugees but, more importantly, the focused criticism of Australia's treatment of our Peoples across this country.

A call for solidarity: Many minds can locate the true pathway

Michael Anderson

If we truly want to establish a process of asserting our sovereignty then we must cast aside personalities and differences. This is not about gaining personal notoriety or fame because not one person has all the answers, but many minds can locate the true pathway. For of all we need to recognise flaws in our own personal makeup. Do we truly understand what colonised minds look like? We must first look at ourselves as oppressed people because oppressed people must understand that they are themselves their own examples of oppression and unfortunately when we go through the education and enculturation processes of the colonial States, we miss so much of our own ancient teachings and in doing so lose our self-awareness of who we truly are.

Decolonisation: to be or not to be included in the Constitution?

Constitution Recognition

A discussion paper Decolonisation: To be or not to be included in the Constitution puts in perspective the issue of where we choose to place ourselves as First Nations and Peoples within or outside the Australian Constitution. When the Sovereign Union argues that we have never ceded nor acquiesced our pre-existing and inherent sovereign rights, we find that the Recognise campaign is promoting acquiescence and consenting to be ruled by the colonising power from Britain, the Crown. This will be the case if there is no statement in writing to the contrary of clear and plain intent in the proposed wording of the referendum. [node:read-more:link]
