Australia's 'admissions against their own interest' - an alert to the Canberra Centenary

On the centenary of Canberra (12 March) it is timely to draw attention to the fact that the sovereignty question, as it relates to Aboriginal Nations and Peoples, is now a living and active thought and aspiration, which is steadily developing into a nationwide movement.

It is now essential that we look at some international legal factors that give rise to the strengthening of our asserted positions of ‘sovereignty never ceded' and ‘continuing sovereignty'. Read more about Australia's 'admissions against their own interest' - an alert to the Canberra Centenary

Les Malezer needs to be called to answer for a major fraud ...

... re UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

In a media release Michael Anderson, Convenor of the Sovereign Union movement said the opposition to the Act of Recognition carried to Commonwealth Parliament by the Sovereign Union protest on 13 February 2013 is very important as it highlights the First Nations peoples continuing resistance to the dictatorial traits of Australian governments, but we must also be very mindful of what it is that we are fighting for as sovereign entities, who have never ceded our sovereignty.

After the protest the Sovereign Union served formal notice of our opposition to the Act of Recognition to the Queen, via the Governor-General, the Prime Minister, all members of the Federal Parliament with copies to all member states of the United Nations.

The Apology is still an empty vessel: Sovereign Union

In a letter sent to all Federal politicians on 12 February, 2013, Sovereign Union alerts them of the manipulation hidden within the apology that excuses the government of being complicit in authorising and legitimising the actions of Australian state governments.

The 'empty vessel' factor and the heartlessness of no compensation is an insult and a dagger to the heart and soul, thereby increasing the pain of traumatised Peoples. Many people argue that the effort on the part of former PM Kevin Rudd to apologise was worth hearing and that it did serve to act as a catalyst towards improving and easing the trauma of our people, but then to say that our people are not worthy of reparation and compensation for those affected is yet another major slap in the face for the survivors and their families of the Stolen Generations.

Governments 'Act of Recognition' has some very serious implications

The current proposals for an Act of Recognition by the Commonwealth parliament is nothing more than a token gesture, but has some very serious implications, said Sovereign Union spokesperson, Michael Anderson.

"This Act of Recognition Bill does not provide for any referendum amongst First Nations and Peoples through out Australia to register whether they accept this imposed process or reject it; whether we want another process to create the fundamental foundation of the right of self-determination as Peoples, and thereby provide for individual Aboriginal nations to negotiate amicable outcomes through a treaty process that reflects the true ambitions, inherent rights and aspirations of each individual Aboriginal Nation.
