Seventeen Nations were represented at the inaugural Gathering of Nations, held in the House of Representatives in Old Parliament House and at the Aboriginal Embassy, Canberra. Three of these Nations have already declared their continuing independence and pre-existing Statehood. They are the Murrawarri Republic; the Euahlayi Peoples Republic and the Republic of Mbarbaram, Atherton Tablelands, Far North Queensland.

Pangarte Rosalie Kunoth-Monks of the Alyewarre Nation and Ghillar Michael Anderson, Head of State of the Euahlayi Nation, were chosen unanimously as joint head spokespersons for the Sovereign Union on behalf of the Nations present. [node:read-more:link]

Euahlayi Peoples Republic appoint their Provisional Executive Council of State

At the Provisional Executive Council of State meeting of the Euahlayi Peoples Republic various Ministerial Portfolios were allocated.

'We have been silent for too long and now that we are truly beginning to understand our rights under International law we will make very deliberate moves that enhances our ability to govern in our way according to our Law and customs, combined with modernity, which we will adapt to our ways of governing ...'

Aboriginal Rates Case back on track

The Rates Case in the NSW Magistrates Court in Sydney between Brewarrina shire and Michael Anderson is challenging the question of sovereignty.

Before the question of rates payable can be dealt with, the legal argument is clearly a question of jurisdiction. Also, shire councils are being paid by the Commonwealth, which is believed to be double dipping, bordering on fraud

Euahlayi Nation declares independence and asserts pre-existing and continuing Statehood

On 3 August 2013 in Dirranbandi, Queensland, a meeting of key Euahlayi family members and Elders concluded that a letter be forwarded to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, informing her that the People of the Euahlayi have asserted their pre-existing and continuing Statehood.

This decision follows on from previous correspondence with Buckingham Palace in 2010.

The Office of the Official Secretary to the Governor-General answered that they were unable to supply any of the requested documents.

A fight against paying rates on ancient homelands

Both the Euahlayi and the Murrawarri Nations have joined in a combined effort to fight against paying rates on their ancient homelands.

This is an issue that has arisen as a consequence of the Brewarrina Shire Council seeking payment of rates for services on their ancient homelands.

The matter is beyond the scope and jurisdiction of the State courts so the Federal Attorney-General will now consult with the State and Territory Attorneys-General. [node:read-more:link]
