Dispossession of First Nations maintained by archaic land tenure system

Dispossession of First Nations maintained by archaic land tenure system  - PILLIGA Coal seam gas and FEUDALISM

The announcement on 30 September 2020 of the approval for the Santos coal seam gas extraction in the Pilliga reflects the many ways the colonising power overrides First Nations, this time it's the Gomeroi/Kamilaroi Nation. 850 gas wells are proposed in the Pilliga, where our ancient Stories are now threatened in the place we call Girraween, Place of Flowers - created for the purpose of ensuring that we have a sustainable seedbank for our ecological systems within the eastern states. It also holds the Gomeroi creation site of the Kangaroo and Emu. [node:read-more:link]

Colonial fraud against First Nations and Peoples: understanding 'non est factum'

Colonial fraud against First Nations and Peoples: understanding 'non est factum'

Colonial law is a law that cheats all our Peoples out of our ownership of all our lands, water and natural resources and ownership of all of our native flora and fauna, which are our families through our Totemic Law rules.
Native Title laws keep us outside in the drought without shade and we are burning up, just like our native bush. The 'two bob black trackers' control all negotiations and dictate what they say our people should get and agree to. [node:read-more:link]

The Code: Pathway to total assimilation of First Nations Peoples

The Code

Join the dots between the current Recognition campaign; Constitutional inclusion; Native Title Act's Preamble; Australia's obligations to the UN and the CERD; Special Measures; the Treaty processes and the insistence that First Nations Peoples are called 'Indigenous Australians' ... then there is the Victorian treaty legislation that introduces itself by stating that the people the treaty is for is Victorian Aborigines. If we are to reach the point where proper treaties are negotiated then we must look at some of the serious ramification that will flow. [node:read-more:link]

Historical Background to the NAIDOC 2019 Theme: ‘Voice, Treaty, Truth’

Historical Background to the NAIDOC 2019 Theme: ‘Voice, Treaty, Truth’

Our greatest fear is not whether we negotiate a Treaty, but the forcing through of the Recognition campaign for inclusion in the colonial Constitution. Ghillar, Michael Anderson, provides an historical insight into the NAIDOC 2019 theme ‘Voice, Treaty, Truth’, which reveals that each time First Nations Sovereignty rises up too powerfully it is suppressed in favour of the ‘trip wire to assimilation’. The ‘Voice’, of the NAC was shafted in 1984; the NAC ‘Treaty’ framework was dismantled and ‘Truth’ has barely been heard yet. [node:read-more:link]
