Aboriginal Sovereign Union diplomat Graham Merritt, speaking today from Parliament House Canberra said:

"Today is an historic moment, when on behalf of the Sovereign Union I am serving the Crown via the Governor General Quentin Bryce and the Commonwealth Government of Australia with our formal objection to the Act of Recognition.

"This Act of Recognition is a sleight of hand, as the Crown and Government continue to bypass proper recognition of our continuing Sovereignty. The Commonwealth Government is using the reform process to attempt to bring Sovereign Aboriginal Nations and Peoples into the Constitution of a foreign illegal occupying force."

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.

National Congress 'Tent Embassy' event on 26th is not ours

First Nations sovereignty activist, Michael Ghillar Anderson, makes clear that an event being organised by the National Congress of Australia's First Peoples (NCAFP) for 26 January 2013 at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra, is NOT an Aboriginal Embassy initiative.

Mr Anderson, spokesperson for Sovereign Union emphasises that the NCAFP is a government funded organisation that has not gained the majority support of grassroots First Nations people.

He said that he recognises the Congress's efforts regarding some reforms but Les Malezer and Congress are publicly supportive of the token Constitutional reform. Read more about National Congress 'Tent Embassy' event on 26th is not ours

Asserting Aboriginal Sovereignty into Governance

Message to our Aboriginal Leaders and authorized 'Lore' people of our Aboriginal Nations.

Aboriginal Sovereignty is official recognition of already existing first Nations Peoples (Aboriginal People) cultural and land connection. The recognition recognizes the right for Governance of one's own affairs.

"It is important to understand how in Aboriginal society one nation cannot speak for another" (Anderson, Michael. 2011) Read more about Asserting Aboriginal Sovereignty into Governance
