Overcoming oppressors' absolute brutality targeting our children

Adam Giles Don Dale Detention

Aboriginal Australia is not fully aware of the psychological warfare perpetrated against us and it's very clear that the current dilemmas facing Aboriginal people in Australia today stems from the fact that we are under attack by a colonial regime determined to beat us into the submission of assimilation. We should never forget that the original assault by the British in 1788 was altered by Governor Phillip from one of conciliating the 'affections of the Natives' to that of infusing 'an universal terror' causing them to submit through fear, as opposed to reconciling cultural differences through negotiation.

The invasion and the non-Aboriginal claim to sovereignty

It must be acknowledged that this country was invaded and this is confirmed by the actions of Captain James Cook when he fired at the first group of Aboriginal people he came in contact with. Then the invaders imprisoned us and interned us in detention centres in the guise of looking after our welfare, protecting us from the barbarous acts of the squatocracy and their militias, supported by the police and redcoats, and then had the audacity to try and establish representative government on the land of others, while we were being imprisoned and killed.
