Concealing colonial strings of control

Concealing colonial strings of control

On this anniversary of 9/11 it is a good opportunity to compare spin and denial. The events of 9/11 are still being analysed, but Dr Judy Woods’ collection of photographs reveal far more than the impact of two planes flying into the Twin Towers.

Australia will never accede to any demands for a truth-telling commission relating to its historical processes of colonisation, because of the consequences that will have to be faced by England and Australia alike for their wrongdoings. [node:read-more:link]

John Howard recognised continuing Aboriginal sovereignty in his Ten Point Plan for limiting Native Title


Former PM, John Howard

With the passage of time it is now painfully obvious that former Prime Minister, John Howard, fully realised that Aboriginal peoples maintain a very powerful position in Australia, so much so, that by amending the Native Title Act in 1998 he demonstrated the inherent power of Aboriginal peoples, which stems from our continuing sovereignty.

Having now reviewed his Ten Point Plan it is important for us, as First Nations Peoples, to revisit John Howard’s amendments and what they meant.

Howard’s Ten Point Plan promised ‘bucket loads’ of extinguishment of Native Title after the Wik decision, in which the High Court found that Native Title continued to exist on pastoral leases in Queensland. This sent the Howard government into a fervent need to create ‘certainty’ for the non-Aboriginal landholders, driven by the fear in existing landholders of our continuing connection to Country.

The Referendum Council did not have permission to use the Uluru name in the first place, which has serious cultural implications and the First Nations people across the country, especially cultured people who do not use English as their first language were not involved ... but that is just a beginning of the deceit.

How the Murdoch press keeps Australia’s dirty secret: John Pilger

‘Nigger Hunt’ by Murdoch Media

Murdoch Media are targeting Aboriginal woman Tarneen Onus Williams in a modern day 'Nigger Hunt' because the Melbourne Rally she was involved in, and all of the other Rallies, are becoming a major threat to the continuation of the neo-colonial celebration on 26th January.

The targeting of Tarneen is a example of what John Pilger was talking about in this 2011 article - about how this mega media outlet has been targeting Aboriginal people. [node:read-more:link]
