Gough Whitlam

Ghillar Michael Anderson, the Convenor of the Sovereign Union of First Nations and Peoples and co-founder of the 1972 Aboriginal Embassy and Head of State of Euahlayi Nation, recalls the contributions Gough Whitlam made to Aboriginal rights. 'My greatest memories of Gough Whitlam are in 1972 after we had set up the Aboriginal Embassy on the front lawns of Parliament House, where we had many conversations about pathways for settling our dispute in respect to Australia's obligations to Aboriginal rights'.

Anderson: You cannot benefit from murder ... Time does not erase murder

In the current Euahlayi Peoples Republic Rates Case (QLD), all sides agree that contested sovereignty is not capable of being decided by a court. Therefore the implications confirm that Aboriginal Nations and Peoples have standing and in this respect the Commonwealth and States cannot argue they have sovereignty and dominion over Aboriginal Nations and Peoples.

Ghillar Michael Anderson reminded the Queensland Supreme Court that: "You cannot benefit from murder and that is what happened. Time does not erase murder." Read more about Anderson: You cannot benefit from murder ... Time does not erase murder
