Having concluded his analysis of the Freedom Summit, Ghillar Michael Anderson said it was clear that a great majority of the people who attended were determined to assert their sovereignty. He acknowledged the polarity between the people of different backgrounds, something that has never been so apparent before, and saw the coming together of these groups with an understanding that each can support the other. He also reminds us that 'The Gap' is 'widening' at an alarming rate and there are great challenges for the delegates, who will need to prioritise the needs for the short, medium and long term, and lead.

Australia is committing genocide on a scale unequalled anywhere in the modern world

The closure of more than half of WA's 274 remote communities is another example of how the government and Big Mining work hand in hand to steal Aboriginal land without compensation. There is a thinly veiled agenda to remove Aboriginal people from their homes so the mining industry can have easy access to land ... We are now reaching a climax in our struggle for rights and freedoms and time to take a deep breath, exhale slowly and look around at our situation with clarity. [node:read-more:link]

Expanded doctrine of terra nullius - very much alive in Australia

The outcome of the 'Euahlayi Rates Dispute case' relied on an expanded doctrine of terra nullius to the First Nations people justice. The Supreme Court Judge in Queensland failed to clarify certain arguments, and used the non-justiciability of the sovereignty issue as a link in a chain of argument.
