Sovereignty Declared

Always independent: An interview with Murrawarri Republic Chair Fred Hooper

This weekend in Brisbane, the Referendum Council is holding the last of the Dialogues : a series of meetings with First Nations peoples to discuss the issue of recognising the nation's Indigenous people within the Australian constitution. The findings from the meetings will be reported at a First Nations Convention at Uluru in late May.
However, for many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people constitutional recognition is a token gesture - Fred Hooper Chairman of Murrawarri Republic explains the process his people have taken to declare their sovereignty.

1, 2, 3, Sovereignty, that's how easy it can be!

Media Release - Proclamation

"1, 2, 3, Sovereignty, that's how easy it can be!" was the key chant echoing in the forecourt of Parliament House, Canberra, after the march from the Aboriginal Embassy broke through police lines. The impact of 26 January 2017 was quite significant in many respects, but the most notable was the number of youth who have now stepped up to show that they are prepared to take leadership under the guidance of Elders who have led the struggle to this day.

Invasion Day Callout: Canberra, 26 January 2017

Invasion Day Canberra Aboriginal Tent Embassy

Meet the Sovereign Union mob at the Aboriginal Embassy and march with us to Government House to deliver a Proclamation and another First Nation Declaration of Independence to the Governor-General.
The Proclamation will focus on usurpation as genocide, which continues to this very day, only this time they call it Native Title and Recognise.
The Declaration will declare the falsehood of the British claim of ownership over this continent. Read more about Invasion Day Callout: Canberra, 26 January 2017

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.

'Recognition' - It's time to fund the 'No' vote.

Constitutional Recognition

For millennia there existed, settled laws and customs and ancient social practices have stood the test of time on the continent named 'Australia' by the invaders ... This, under international law, confirms our ability as Aboriginal Nations and Peoples to argue the Act of State doctrine, which is now vehemently expressed when dealing with sovereign inherent rights to govern. Mabo confirms this assertion by us as First Nations Peoples, because as the majority judgement says that Aboriginal Peoples' rights to property have survived the British sovereignty assertion.
