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.

Reparation needed before First Nations peoples can 'move on'

'Telling his own people to move on from the traumas of the past, makes it very obvious why he is not accepted in many Aboriginal communities.' Ghillar Michael Anderson says, and 'It is untrue that all of the European holocaust victims have moved on and forgotten the past. Throughout Germany and other places there are memorials for those who suffered and died at the hands of tyrannical leaders and murderers, but there is only one monument to the Aboriginal dead, who were killed en masse through white farmer vigilantes and government approved killings'.

Sovereign Union To Shadow ANZAC Day March and highlight the Frontier Wars

'Ghillar' Michael Anderson said the Frontier Wars, in which thousands of Aboriginal men and women died defending their traditional lands against European invaders, was much more than an act of aggression. It was "mass murder" and of "war" which deserves to be remembered. "This is a long way from being called a protest," he told New Matilda. "It is a calling for people never to forget what happened here in Australia." He says for too long, ANZAC Day has been about "white Australia, not about Aboriginal Australians".

Noel Pearson's latest attempt to direct Aboriginal Affairs according to Noel Pearson and the conservative right

 

The 'Recognise' proposal that is being floated now re constitutional recognition is an attempt to outrightly steal the Aboriginal Peoples and Torres Strait Islanders' sovereignty and patrimony without the truth being told. 'I have said it once, I have said it many times and I will say it again: The Commonwealth government of Australia does not have the constitutional right to pass laws for the Aboriginal Peoples and Torres Strait Islanders of this country, as though we are citizens,' Michael (Ghillar) Anderson stated Read more about Noel Pearson's latest attempt to direct Aboriginal Affairs according to Noel Pearson and the conservative right
