Ghillar Michael Anderson, Convenor of the Sovereign Union and Head of State of Euahlayi Peoples Republic said from Canberra that the second Gathering of Nations held in Canberra this weekend was successful, and despite disruptions by other parties in opposition to the Sovereign Union, the key matters were successfully concluded.
Some of the issues that arose were the creation of templates that will serve as models for Aboriginal Nations around the country, who seek to make their Unilateral Declarations of Independence based on pre-existing and continuing sovereignty.
Participants agreed that the Commonwealth government is very aware of the power of the emerging unity of common purpose between First Nations and Peoples and is rushing to counteract developments in the sovereignty movement.
It was acknowledged by those participants from across the continent that our endeavours are very different from all past political movements. First Nations and Peoples are in a process of evolution into newly recognisable independent States. Our People now realise that Native Title process is in fact a new legislative method of deseizing people of their possessions, property and inheritance. The Native Title process is the greatest danger to our continued inherent right to the continent. With advice from the United Nations, it has come to our attention that the Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUA) are invalid in contract law if they include Future Acts beyond the single project that is being signed off on. This is a denial of our basic fundamental Human Rights and is a major fraud against the Nations and Peoples.
The Sovereign Union is emphasising the ownership of all Allodial Title and entitlements. As a communual title, Allodial Title means we own everything below and above the earth, from the centre of the earth to the universe. This is why at the United Nations British colonial States and the USA attempted to argue for individual rights, as opposed to communual rights, during the drafting of Declaration of Rights of Indigenous Peoples. They included that the territorial integrity of the sovereignty of the UN Member States must be respected and legal advice confirmed what the High Court in Mabo (No. 2) said and that is – when pre-existing States assert their sovereign rights and challenge the subjugating power, courts of the colonising power and dominant State do not have the legal standing or jurisdiction to determine the priority of the contesting States' sovereignty. Therefore people need to understand that making their Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI) creates a legal block against Australian courts to make any determination about our rights to implement self-governance programs of our independence and our territories.
The security that we now have comes from the rules of international law.
