They are ramping up the 'R' campaign amongst our people at the grassroots. We need to tell the Australian public that we don't accept inequality; we don't want the government to make laws for us; the only thing we want is our sovereignty recognised, our Law and culture recognised; and by having each Nation map their own country and then negotiating their own Treaty packages will we be able to gain a type of satisfaction in this war of attrition against the colonialists. It is so wrong for non-Aboriginal people to be making choices and setting time frames for our Peoples. Read more about Why Deafening Silence: on Constitutional Recognition?
This Recognise campaign is about securing the head of power to govern over Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples. It is not about securing our rights or freeing us from racial discrimination.

March Across the Sydney Harbour Bridge on the 6th March 2015 as a protest against Contitutional Reform and the 'Expert Panel' who make decisions with no consent.

An exclusive 'Recognition' meeting is taking place on Monday 6th July at Kirribilli House. What Abbott and Shorten are doing with this conference is making a mockery of the diplomatic processes they espouse in Australia. It is not possible to conduct a successful plebiscite if the whole process is camouflaged and hidden from the public. Then to restrict the participation in something of this magnitude is criminal. We expect this in countries where people are governed by dictators, but then are Australians really comfortable with the Abbott government's governance?

On 6 July 2015 Tony Abbott, Bill Shorten and the selected 40 government-appointed 'Indigenous Leaders' will be meeting together at Darling Harbour Sydney to discuss advancing the referendum proposal, but the exact time and location has not been released by the organisers. "Now the Australian government realises that the objective to wipe out Aboriginal Nations and Peoples has failed and breeding the colour out did not work either, for our Aboriginality has remained a driving force within the spirit of the people". Ghillar Anderson said in a Media Release. Read more about Callout: 6th July Darling Harbour, Sydney, protest against assimilation into the colonial Constitution
