Every important colonial building in Sydney was placed upon a significant First Nations city site

Sydney City number 2

Sydney's current city is probably the largest urban system ever built from, and upon, an existing city framework and it was built in an unholy silence. So says Sydney based Peter Myers who was an architect on the design team of Jørn Utzon's famous Sydney Opera House at Bennelong Point.
Myers research was triggered in 1991 when a section of a lime plaster cornice collapsed on his c1853 Blacket villa - this led him to, maybe, the First Fleet's best-kept secret. Read more about Every important colonial building in Sydney was placed upon a significant First Nations city site

Time to fully import law against genocide - Family Matters national crisis

The Family Matters Report 2017

Need to delete sections 268.121 – 268.122 of the law against genocide in International Criminal Court Consequential Amendments Act 2002. The release on 29 November of The Family Matters Report 2017 details the 'escalating national crisis’ of the rate of removal of First Nations children from families. From our perspective the core issue is being left out of the debate. Removal of children from the group is one of the five definitions of genocide. The alarming rate of the removal of First Nations children 'from the group’ is only possible because the Commonwealth of Australia has not imported the full force of the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. etc ...

A Statement from the Bush: 'Songlines can bring us Home'

A Statement from the Bush 'Songlines can bring us Home'

Ghillar, Michael Anderson provides an insight into a viable pathway going forward:
At the Referendum Council's National Convention, the line was drawn in the sand. There are no objections to those who want to be absorbed into our oppressor's society. For us who seek to stand and fight, then we must set our sights on looking at the details of how we develop ourselves as self-determining Nations and Peoples, being guided by international legal norms, whilst living next door to our oppressor.

Moving Cenotaph of Frontier Conflicts

Commemoration in Canberra on Anzac Day 2017

It is reassuring that the Anzac Day March in Canberra has accepted the fact that the Frontier Wars Commemorations are now acknowledged. We are not yet part of the formalities of the Anzac Day March itself, but that the day may soon arrive when the Frontier Wars Commemorative March is accepted. This is based on the fact that for the first time in history our diggers were acknowledged in the formal procession with an Elder carrying an Aboriginal Land Rights flag at the beginning of the March - with videos ...

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.
