Wrong legal advice by Professors on Referendum and Sovereignty Ghillar, Michael Anderson, stresses that to ban First Nations people from attending Referendum Council Dialogue meetings cannot be construed as true deliberative democracy, with their denied right to be fully informed and to contribute their point of view in a process that will affect our children's children inheritance and sovereign status. Here he provides a video critique of legal advice regarding the impact of the referendum on First Nations sovereignty, from Professors Megan Davis and George Williams, Referendum Council lawyers.

WRONG LEGAL ADVICE on REFERENDUM & SOVEREIGNTY

WRONG LEGAL ADVICE on EFFECT of REFERENDUM on FIRST NATIONS SOVEREIGNTY Ghillar, Michael Anderson: "... I'm informed that there's a book authored by Megan Davis and George Williams called, 'Everything You Need to Know About the Referendum to Recognise Indigenous Australians'. ... "Underlying the High Court reasoning is the view that the sovereignty of Australia's First Peoples was displaced by British settlement and the introduction of their law." Now I find that quite extraordinary, because here you have this fellow, this Professor George Williams, who was an Attorney-General of Australia under ,what's his name? Paul Keating and they're saying that our sovereignty was displaced by the introduction of their law, British law. "That's absurd, because when they settled Australia they came here as a penal colony. So there was no civil law, there was only one law. The Admiralty brought them here, and they were in Australia under Admiralty Law, but operating a prison, operating a penal colony. So this here, there was no civil law came into Australia at that time at all. It was just a prison, all right? Now then they go, "This was brought about by the assertion by the British of their sovereignty over the Australian Continent." Now, what happened here, was that as they're saying there that to be able to assert their sovereignty as we know, they did it on the basis of there was no one here, terra nullius. "And so, the King planted a flag and everything that's wherever he planted, and if there's just one continuous land mass, he owned everything. Now, if you go back in history, you'll see where the King stood on, I think, somewhere near Dover or some place over in England, looked across, and he might have been able to see on a clear day, part of Calais over on France land and then, all of a sudden, he waved his hand and said, "I own all that." And of course, anybody with any common sense would tell you that's absolutely ridiculous. And so, that statement there is just as ridiculous as someone standing on Dover and saying, "Oh I can see land over there, so I own that too." Right? Just never mind the people living on it. "Now, that's just absurd. So there is a formula, and in international law, at the time when they did that, that made that very different. And they totally ignored all those laws. Now then they go, "All these occurred before the Australian Constitution came into force in 1901." Now, I have absolutely no idea why they bother to say that, because you see, the Federation had nothing to do with the sovereignty that was asserted back then. Because all those colonial states, the colonies, New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, West Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, were already in existence and so they were claiming [sovereignty]. So through those colonies, that's where they were asserting [sovereignty] and forming government, in those colonies. "So to come up and say, oh you know, and to think that the Australian Constitution had something to do with British assertion of sovereignty is absurd. So you can throw that one aside and all they did was just create another tier of government. That's all they did with the 1901 Constitution. Then you've got, "That document created a new nation upon a continent that the British already regarded as theirs." So they make their own statement and confirm that that's the case. "Changing the Constitution in 1967 did not alter this, nor would changing the Constitution today." Now for educated people to write that is absolutely irresponsible, because that's misleading, completely misleading altogether. Because you see, when they say that changing the Constitution in 1967, did not alter this, there is something that's important, and that is that if you go to '63, '64, and '65 and look at the Hansards when they were talking about establishing the Bill to get the 1967 Referendum up, you will see in there where Beasley Sr. said that he led a parliamentary inquiry around Australia looking at Aboriginal Peoples' citizenship and he said in the Parliament, that it's ridiculous that we here in Australia have a Federation, and we still do not recognise Aborigines as citizens.

MOVING CENOTAPH for FRONTIER WARS & MASSACRES

MOVING CENOTAPH to FRONTIER KILLING FIELDS: "It is now reassuring that the Anzac Day March in Canberra has accepted the fact that the Frontier Wars Commemorations are now acknowledged and we are advised that War Memorial officials and police will not obstruct us on this day in future. I also acknowledge that we are not yet part of the formalities of the Anzac Day March itself, but there is a reassuring factor that gives us heart to believe that the day will soon arrive when the Frontier Wars Commemorative March will be accepted. This assurance is based on the fact that for the first time in history Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander diggers were acknowledged in the formal procession and what was encouraging is that an Elder carried an Aboriginal Land Rights flag at the beginning of the March and Defence Force men and women in uniform also carried the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flag and the Australian flags side by side as part of the formal March. This is very significant. "Interestingly enough with the Diggers March being in the front four units and the Commemorative Frontier War March at the end, symbolically, like the Kangaroo and Emu on the Australian Trademark/ “Coat of Arms” we had the whole of the colonial Defence Force wedged between us. "People should never forget the sacrifices of anyone who fights for their freedom. It is a right. It is a human obligation. It is a sacred duty to defend ourselves from tyrannical rule and oppression. "What now surprises the public when they see the Frontier Wars Commemorative March and over 50 metres of yellow fabric, listing over 1000 recorded conflicts, is that they don’t see a protest, but instead they see a moving cenotaph, which remembers many of those places where Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have been killed, poisoned and have also died as a result of germ warfare, when Governor Phillip’s crew released smallpox at Balmoral Beach, Sydney. This lead to historical accounts of the new comers finding hundreds of Aboriginal people dead and their bodies scarred with smallpox. "This Frontier Wars Commemorative March is our way of saying our Old People, who died defending their lands and freedoms, must also be remembered. Moreover, we ask the RSL, the War Memorial personnel and the public to communicate with us to commence a process of formally burying our dead, rather than continuing to have cattle, sheep and mining company vehicles drive over the bones of our murdered ancestors as they do on a daily basis. We remember our Old People, we want everyone to else to remember them as well. Their lives at the time were just as important as ours now." Ghillar, Michael Anderson

Henry Reynolds - Questions on the Frontier Wars

Drawing on research and fieldwork conducted for his latest book Forgotten War, acclaimed historian and writer Henry Reynolds outlines the depth and breadth of violence and conflict between white colonists and Aborigines, in Australia’s own forgotten frontier wars. Australia is dotted with memorials to soldiers who fought in wars overseas. Why are there no official memorials or commemorations of the wars that were fought on Australian soil between Aborigines and white colonists? Why is it more controversial to talk about the frontier wars now than it was 100 years ago?

MOVING TRUTH: 6 years of FRONTIER WARS MARCHES on Anzac Day

"We’ve been dying on this soil for many hundreds of years now, since the whiteman came and we’ve been doing that in defence of our land. They’ve had the superior force and mightier weapons, but they’ve never been able to conquer us. They’ve been able to imprison us, jail us and all that sort of stuff but we’ve never acquiesced, never ceded our sovereignty and we are in defence of our land every day of the week. This is a hidden war. It’s a war of stealth and, unfortunately, when we want to remind people of this, then people take offence and call it a protest. This is just being totally respectful of the fact that we, our people, have got a message to relay and Australia cannot keep hiding it – like at Hospital Creek nine kilometres north of Brewarrina. We want to excise that land there because the human bones are still visible and that’s my ancestry. They were shot at this place. We had here people who survived this massacre, but that was a private army. They were made up of all the cockies and pastoralists. It’s reality. We need to remind people of this – and you go to Germany where mass murders occurred in Germany. You go to Serbia now, where they buried people in mass graves, where they massacred them. They’ve now created a situation there where these things are memorial parks now to the dead who were killed there. Here in Australia we don’t have that and I think it’s time we did that for every nation. We have to include the elements of Australia’s forgotten wars." Ghillar, Michael Anderson 25 April

Not Hunter Gatherers - Bruce Pascoe

The Martu people in Western Australia set small fires as a matter of course while hunting lizards and their technique at the same time buffers the landscape against two extremes – overgrown brush and widespread lightning fires that wipe out endangered small mammals. The Martu people traditionally set small fires while foraging for food, which leaves a patchwork landscape that is a perfect environment for bilbies, wallabies, possums and other threatened mammals. The practice is so ingrained in their culture that their language has words for every stage of plant growth following a fire, ranging from nyurnma – a fresh fire scar – to kunarka – a landscape overgrown with spinifex.

White 'Australians' screaming blue murder at the thought of Aboriginal people getting land after the Mabo (No. 2) decision Former PM Paul Keating's reactions to the Mabo 2 findings in 1992, after the High Court of Australia affirmed in the judgment that the ancient cultures and Laws of First Nations peoples survived the British claim to sovereignty - Keating lost Government to John Howard at the next election, and Howard immediately started drafting legislation to protect the invaders. The outcome was Land Rights being replaced with a watered down Native Title, Introduction of Indigenous Land Use Agreements (ILUA's) and the 'Constitution Recognition' model to coerce First Nations people into the constitution and therefore ceding sovereignty by agreeing to be governed by the rogue state.

NT Police investigation found the officer didn't break any laws The boy, who cannot be identified, had been a passenger in a stolen car that went for a joyride with three boys in Palmerston in November last year. At the time, an NT Police statement said: "With such reckless driving in close proximity to schools at drop-off time, we are very fortunate that no children were injured or killed." The three boys were confronted by police at a Bakewell petrol station and a 17-year-old was wrestled to the ground, a 13-year-old tackled by police and the 12-year-old tasered — an action deemed unlawful by a judge.

The secret bombing in East Kimberley

SECRET BOMBINGS OF ABORIGINAL COMMUNITY Kalumburu Community (formerly known as Drysdale River Mission) is the northern-most settlement in Western Australia, situated just inland from the north Kimberley coast. In the same region as Oombulgurri, the Aboriginal Community in the Kimberley that the WA Government closed down in 2010. Close to the Kalumburu mission there was a secret RAAF base during WWII. Vanessa Adam's grandmother, Dolores Cheinmora, was a young Aboriginal girl living a traditional life in the bush with her family. She witnessed planes flying out from a cave but did not understand what they were or what they were doing. She was terrified and kept the secret all her life. In September 1943, the Japanese bombed Kalumburu Mission, killing a Benedictine priest and five Aboriginal people, including a mother and baby. It was only later that Vanessa's grandmother made the connection between what she had seen in the bush and the deaths of her relatives in the bombing. Just before she died, she finally shared the story she had carried in her heart all those years and Vanessa has produced this painting to record her family's history for future generations.

WHITE AUSTRALIA POLICY Last night we had a Yobbo-Australian comment that we would have suffered more if Japan had invaded the continent instead of Britain ... Prime Minister Billy Hughes fixation on the White Australia Policy and his role in the refusal to allow Japan a leading role on the 'League of Nations' at the end of WW1 was at the very centre of the inflammatory issues that led to Australia's war with Japan. Japan wanted to introduce racial equality into the League of Nations, but Australia was going to have none of that, and although Japan had intent of being a world power and doesn't have a perfect record with its own Indigenous people, it wasn't the First Nations people who they despised, it was the cocky racist colononial government.

The list of over 2000 Killing Fields is represented on a banner at the beginning of this video which was filmed at the 2016 Frontier Wars ANZAC Day Commemoration March in Canberra - (The names are sites of killings - not names of people, the list would represent ten of thousands of people slaughtered). Although there were thousands of brutal murders, gross massacres and fierce frontier conflicts that were not recorded, slowly more are coming to light as people search through records, old Newspaper clippings, letters sent abroad and government journals etc. Further names of Killing Fields and sites are turning up each year, some just as a brief mention with numbers given and others with more details and exact dates. The number that have always been official to the colonisers are those from their own peoples accounts, never the numbers First Nations people who very often spoke of many extended families, where the colonisers would reveal figures of 10 - 15 for example from the same battle or massacre.

For First Nations people, the kinship system is the foundation for determining family obligations, ceremonial roles, the relationship to the environment, and even who you can and cannot marry. One of three concepts central to many kinship systems is skin names, a form of societal organisation that indicates how generations are linked and how different people should interact. "Skin names is about making sure that people who have bloodlines that are too close don't marry," academic expert Dr Lynette Riley explained. "From the moment you're conceived, you have your identity." "It's a culture. A skin name you're actually born with it. You don't get given it." And for prominent country singer and Arrernte man Warren H Williams, the ancient concept of skin is "a way of life" ...

'Meat and Livestock Australia' (MLA) has tried to tone down it's racist 'Australia Day' ads due to the outcry after previous attempts. They are now promoting 'Australia Day' by giving the wider Australian audience the impression it is not a sensitive issue to First Nations peoples and all who fully understand the history and significance of the invasion. They have managed to find some Aboriginal actors who either don't fully understand the cultural significance of this day or their back pocket has got the better of them. With racism rampted up in 'Australia' over the last decade or so, targeting all non white cultures from newly arrived to the oldest continuing culture on earth, the MLA have chosen to detract from the conversation and celebrate 'modern multiculturalism' - with a play on Invasion Day.

CULTURAL WARNING - Pilbara and beyond Ms Dhu (feat. Felix Riebl and Marliya) by Spinifex Gum Source: Dominic Allen Vimeo (Lyrics, Credits and Links attached) The family of Indigenous woman Ms Dhu hope that a song written about her death in custody will draw international attention to their campaign for justice. The song, produced by Cat Empire vocalist Felix Riebl in conjunction with the Marliya singers from the Gondwana Indigenous Children’s Choir tells the story of Dhu’s 45 hours in custody at South Hedland police station, Western Australia, before her death from septicemia and pneumonia on 4 August, 2014. LYRICS Ms Dhu died too young 22 When they carried her “like a dead kangaroo” From her cell back to the same hospital Who’d assumed that her pain must be invisible But she cried three days bout aching while Constable Bond said ‘Nah she’s faking it Just another junkie who’s trying to escape, another Black troublemaker, well I’m not taking it She’s like a two year old, give her paracetamol’ Little did they know a septicemia had taken hold It’s white prejudice digging black holes Every black death in custody’s a blight on our soul But we’re not going away, it’s our home, our home Our heart is breaking in two, but we stand in a row Said we’re not going away, it’s our home, our home And we’ve been losing our youth for too long Ms Dhu had fines yeah just a few Three thousand six hundred and twenty two Got her locked up in the Port Hedland zoo Where the few rich make millions while they snooze Still they called her a user until she died Cold truth in her pain, in her eyes Racism so deep it’s become institutionalized What they did to Dhu, is the real crime But we’re not going away, it’s our home, our home Our heart is breaking in two, but we stand in a row Said we’re not going away, it’s our home, our home And we’ve been losing our youth for too long, too long… Too long, too long, too long, too long… She comes from the plains where they call up the weather Horizon so long and a Law without letters See it come feel it fall like forever Did it rain so long all our tears made a river? ‘It wasn’t me, wasn’t me I’m innocent’ Say the ones who betrayed her in every sense Now they’re white washing away evidence Will we ever see a cop locked up for negligence? Will we ever see the rock turned up on ignorance? Will we ever see a government who first listens? Will we ever see the stats fall in black prisons? Did Dhu die for nothing, no she didn’t! But we’re not going away, it’s our home, our home Our heart is breaking in two, but we stand in a row Said we’re not going away, it’s our home, our home And we’ve been losing our youth for too long, for too long Ms Dhu died too young 22 When they carried her ‘like a dead kangaroo’ And we wish that it wasn’t true, but it is So the next question is what are we going to do?

'A Dog Act'. - Kwementyaye Ryder Alice Springs

CULTURAL WARNING - Central Australia There's at least two ways to tell if a justice system is riddled with racism. The first is when the families of the deceased mourn a sentence, and when the friends of the killers hold a party ... This story is about the brutal murder of Kwementyaye Ryder, a 33-year-old Alice Springs Aboriginal man who was beaten to death by a pack of white youths near the Todd River, Alice Springs.. The boys purposely knocked the 33 year old Aboriginal man over with their car and kicked him in the head repeatedly, then finishing him off by smashing a bottle over his head. When they got to the court case, Justice Brian Martin, described the boys in glowing terms while their legal counsel called their actions just a 'bit of hooning'. You'll remember Brian Martin the Judge, he was the animal Malcolm Turnbull selected as the Commissioner for Royal Commission into the Child Protection and Youth Detention Systems of the Northern Territory ... but there was such a backlash on social media about the appointment, Brian Martin was forced to resign the Commission before he started, fortunately. A few hours after the young white men were convicted of the crime and given pitiful sentences, a girlfriend of one of the killers had family and friends over to her house to celebrate.

In Australia's Western Desert, Aboriginal hunters use a unique method that actually increases populations of the animals they hunt, according to a study co-authored by Stanford Woods Institute-affiliated researchers Rebecca and Doug Bird. Rebecca Bird is an associate professor of anthropology, and Doug Bird is a senior research scientist. The study offers new insights into maintaining animal communities through ecosystem engineering and co-evolution of animals and humans. It finds that populations of monitor lizards nearly double in areas where they are heavily hunted. The hunting method -- using fire to clear patches of land to improve the search for game -- also creates a mosaic of regrowth that enhances habitat. Where there are no hunters, lightning fires spread over vast distances, landscapes are more homogenous and monitor lizards are more rare.

Boer War Trackers - Search to track down Indigenous serviceman...

Between 1899 and 1902, fifty Aboriginal black trackers were summonsed by the British forces in South Africa to join the Boer war effort. Griffith University's Indigenous research fellow, Dr Dale Kerwin said that the black trackers came from all over the country but very little else is known about them. He claims they were left behind at the end of the war in 1902 because they were denied re-entry into Australia under the Immigration Protection Act, known as the White Australian Policy.

VIDEO: Henry Reyolds takes on Windschuttle ARTICLE: The Forgotten War - slaughter on stolen lands 'THE FORGOTTEN WAR' By any objective consideration, this was Australia's long war - the bitter, dis-remembered struggle at its very national foundations; and, for Aborigines (sic), their great war While we remember our casualties in overseas wars, no toll exists for Aboriginal deaths during the brutal colonisation of Australia. As with so many other Australian urban centres, in the Queensland coastal town of Bundaberg the statue of a Great War Digger gazes down from its high, imposing column. The commemorative monument rises out of a well-mown roundabout in the heart of Bundaberg's main thoroughfare, Bourbong Street. Its centrality reflects a fervent, everyday preoccupation with warfare and soldiering in the national lexicon. Twentieth-century Australia, as Henry Reynolds reminds us in this challenging and cogently argued volume, has been "almost continuously" engaged in foreign wars, at the behest of the British or American hegemon, since 1939.

My childhood trauma is on the public record. I was not raised by my Aboriginal mother and for this I have suffered. Right throughout my life I have been victim to abuse. When I discuss, in detail, these abuses to my non-Aboriginal colleagues, to friends and to counsellors, many of them are taken aback, commenting on their inability to comprehend the depth, the extent of the trauma I have suffered.

Totemic Law and Heraldic Law Parralels

The British Crown and the Australian governments have stolen the sacred Totems from Aboriginal peoples. The examples Ghillar mentions here are his own Nations Totems, Emu and Kangaroo, which are on the Australian Crest, but State's and local governments right across the continent have stolen hundreds of Totems, if not thousands - they all have crests on their buildings and stationary. If that is not enough, the perpetrators are still coersing our people into giving away their sacred sites by assisting in mapping them. Decolonisation - Totemic Law and Heraldic Law At the Court of Chivalry and The College of Arms Ghillar, Michael Anderson, explains the relevance of his interest in heraldic law as it relates to First Nations' totemic Law and symbols within Euahlayi, Gomeroi and the other Nations in Australia. The Court of Chivalry was begun by Richard III in 1484 and protects the ownership of totems and symbols for the inheritors'

'Biggest Estate on Earth' - Bill Gammage 2011 report - ABC News

Four police officers accused of assaulting an Aboriginal man in custody on the New South Wales far north coast have been found not guilty. David Hill, Luke Mewing, Lee Walmsley and Ryan Eckersley had stood trial in Sydney accused of bashing Corey Barker inside the Ballina Police Station in 2011. The court had heard that Officer Hill punched Mr Barker who was then forced to the floor by other officers and kicked. Today a jury acquitted all four officers of common assault. They and two other police who were on duty that day were also cleared of attempting to pervert the course of justice. Prosecutors had earlier claimed the officers falsely stated Mr Barker had punched Mr Hill. One of the officers had admitted to getting it wrong after reviewing the evidence. But lawyers for two of the other officers had tried to question the reliability of CCTV footage the prosecution relied on when arguing Mr Barker did not throw punches. Defence lawyers had also pointed to a gap of several months between the incident and the time the officers' statements were taken. The jury will continue deliberating tomorrow on charges of making a false statement and perjury levelled against officer Hill.

Exile and the Kingdom part 2 - Onslow, Roebourne WA

'Exile and the Kingdom' (PART 2) - Documentary Feature film made with the Yindjibarndi, Ngarluma, Banyjima and Gurrama people of Roebourne, in the Pilbara region of Western Australia. This documentary argues that the relentless removal of the Yindjibarndi/Ngarluma people from their hinterland estates into coastal ghettos has led to the community’s current problems. However, as the film moves us through the period of British colonisation, unearthing appalling facts about slavery and the violent rule of pearling and pastoral overlords, to the abuses of the 1960s iron ore mining boom and problems of alcohol, it never allows the viewer to forget the significance and influence of spiritual homelands. An account in of the experiences of a community of Aboriginal people from pre-colonial times to the 1990s. This film makes the connection between Aboriginals in chains in the 19th century and Aboriginal people in prisons today, providing an incisive understanding of how the violence and denials of the past inform the present. Ultimately, the film gives conviction that with their extraordinary resilience, the Indigenous peoples of Australia will survive and flourish.

ADANI COAL Indian mining giant Adani wants to build Australia's biggest coal port at Abbot Point on the Great Barrier Reef coastline. The port expansion will require massive development, including dredging and dumping, and poses a huge risk to the Reef's already vulnerable ecosystem. When Adani built a coal port and power plant in Mundra, India, the damage was astonishing. It destroyed the environment that had sustained local fishing and farming businesses for generations. Those villagers are now bravely speaking out against Adani, and they send a warning to Australia - don't trust Adani. Right now, the new Queensland Government is looking at Adani's suitability to operate in Australia. Please share this video to spread the word that Adani are not fit to operate anywhere, let alone the Great Barrier Reef.

Professor Gary Lilienthal, Head of the School of Law at the College of Government and International Studies, University Utara in Malaysia explains some factors of International law at the 2016 Gathering of First Nations and People, including these valuable points:- - 'Deaths in Custody' is code for 'Government Death Squad' - That's its real name in International Law - First Nations 'Songlines' are a 'Functional Legal System' in International Law (not a religion) - When a person who is not educated or speaks another language and they sign a document and don't fully understand it properly, it is Unlawful under International Law - It's is called: 'non est factum' - so they cannot force you to sign it.

Rodney Kelly Gweagal sheild campaign Germany/Netherlands - 9 and 10 November 2016 (German Language) ENGLISH TRANSLATION (Google translate) On April 28, 1770, shots were heard for the first time in the history of the Australian continent. On the day, Captain Cook and his crew landed on the beach of Botany Bay near Sydney today. The Gweagal warrior Cooman was on the ground and tried to defend the intruders. He was shot in the leg, whereupon he dropped his shield and his spears and retreated. Cook picked up the artefacts and brought them back to England, where they are still in the British Museum and the Cambridge University Museum. In a six-week stay in Europe, with the aim of bringing back the stolen items, the sixth great-grandson of Cooman, Rodney Kelly, visits Germany on 9 and 10 November 2016. Together with Luritja elder Vincent Forrester and Aboriginal activist Roxley Foley, he offers a perspective on the events on 28 April 1770, which remains invisible in the official history of Australia. VIDEO TEXT (German language) Am 28. April 1770 erklangen zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte des australischen Kontinents Schüsse. An dem Tag landeten Kapitän Cook und seine Besatzung am Strand von Botany Bay nahe dem heutigen Sydney. Der Gweagal Krieger Cooman war vor Ort und versuchte die Eindringlinge abzuwehren. Er wurde ins Bein geschossen, worauf er sein Schild und seine Speere fallenließ und sich zurückzog. Cook nahm die Artefakte an sich und brachte sie mit zurück nach England, wo sie sich bis heute im British Museum und im Museum der Universität von Cambridge befinden. Im Rahmen eines sechswöchigen Aufenthalts in Europa, mit dem Ziel die gestohlenen Gegenstände zurückzubringen, besucht der sechste Urenkel von Cooman, Rodney Kelly, am 9. und 10. November 2016 Deutschland. Zusammen mit Luritja Ältester Vincent Forrester und Aboriginal Aktivist Roxley Foley bietet er in einem Vortrag eine Perspektive auf die Geschehnisse am 28. April 1770, die in der offiziellen Geschichtsschreibung von Australien unsichtbar bleibt.

The Inuit elders from the arctic regions of Canada have issued NASA and the world a warning that the earth has 'tilted' or as they put it, 'wobbled' to the north and they all agree 'Their sky has changed'. "The elders maintain the Sun doesn't rise where it used to, they have longer daylight to hunt and the Sun is higher than it used to be and warms up quicker than before. The elders who were interviewed across the north all said the same thing. The stars the Sun and the Moon have all changed affecting the temperature, even affecting the way the wind blows, it is becoming increasingly hard to predict the weather, something that is a must on the Arctic. The Inuits are the First Nations people who inhabit the arctic regions of Canada and Greenland and throughout history their very lives have been dependent on being able to correctly forecast weather. They are warning NASA and the world that global warming isn't the cause of what we are seeing with extreme weather, earthquakes and other events. NASA scientists and other experts are taking this information very seriously.

Setting up (establishing) The Aboriginal Embassy in 1972 - tent

CULTURAL WARNING The establishment of the Aboriginal Embassy on the lawns in front of Parliament House (now old parliament house) in 1972. On 26 January 1972, in response to the government announcing that Aboriginal people would need to lease their land from the government, four Aboriginal men (Billy Craigie, Ghillar, Michael Anderson, Tony Coorey and Bertie Williams) set off to Canberra from Sydney to establish protest on the lawn in front of Parliament House (now Old Parliament House), and they planted a beach umbrella in the ground for protection. Sadly, out of the four men only Ghillar has survived to this day, but the movement quickly escalated, with people arrving from across the country. Originally it was named 'The Aboriginal Embassy' but it became known as the Aboriginal Tent Embassy for obvious reasons. The first tent they had was donated by the Mormon's Church. This short doco includes footage of Kevin Gilbert (1933-1993) who was one of the first Aboriginal men to start talking about Aboriginal sovereighty

CROWD FUNDING Micklo Corpus, is a passionate Yawuru man from the Kimberley, who has taken a stand against gas fracking on his country, the Roebuck Plains in the Kimberley, 70km east of Broome. He's been camped out for 2 years 'locking the gate' on Buru Energy's gas fracking plans. However, in June, the Broome Shire served him with a building order to remove the structures that he's built, saying that they would be bulldozed at a cost of $26,000. Micklo is now legally appealing this decision. We've got just 3 days to raise $15,000 for Micklo - to help with legal fees, solar panels and surveillance equipment.

Ah White Man - Where are your sacred sites

AH, WHITE MAN, HAVE YOU ANY SACRED SITES? Ah, white man, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, where you walk, in silent worship, and you whisper poems, too, where you tread, like me, in wonder, and your eyes are filled with tears, and you see the tracks you've travelled down your fifty thousand years. I am searching round Australia, I am searching, night and day, for a site, to you so sacred that you won't give it away for a bit of coloured paper, say a Church you're knocking down, or the Rocks, your nation's birthplace, by the bridge, in Sydney town. Your cathedrals I have entered, I have seen the empty aisles where a few knelt down in sorrow, where were all the children's smiles? Big cathedrals, full of beauty, opal glass, and gleaming gold, and an old man, in an overcoat, who had crept in from the cold. Your schools, I drifted through them, heard the sound of swishing canes, heard the yell of angry teachers crushing flowers in their brains, heard the bark up on the rostrum where the powers had their say, wouldn't children's hearts be sacred, though they're made, like mine, of clay? Where's your wonder? Where's your worship? Where's your sense of holy awe? When I see those little children torn apart by fear of war, what is sacred to you, white man, what is sacred to your clan? Are your totems rainbow-feathered? Is there dreaming in you, man? Sacred ... sacred ... sacred ... gee you chuck that word about, and when echoes answer sacred ... sacred louder still you shout, and the echoes come in patterns, and then, louder, every one till they meet, like waves together, and go bang! just like a gun. Sacred ... hesitating ... now, a film is reeling through my brain, and through my memory, of our sacred rendez-vous, of our meeting, of our parting, of my tears, as sweet as ice, of my numb incomprehension of a shattered paradise. Sacred, oh so sacred, was our sacred rendez-vous, and your ferocious anger when you found we weren't like you, but if I should make an act of faith, in a voice, both firm and clear, that there's something sacred to me, you starting drowning in your beer. What is sacred to you, white man, what is sacred to your heart? Is Australia just a quarry for the bauxite bells to start? Where the forests are forgotten, and the tinkling of the bell of the bell-bird in the mountains, is just something more to sell? Ah, brother, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, but the rivers, clear as crystal, smell like sewerfulls of spew from the pipe and pump polluters, and the nukes that fleck the foam, Would you let a man, with dirty boots, go walking through your home? Sacred means that ... sacred ... it's a place where spirits rise, with the rainbow wings of sunset, on the edge of paradise, Sacred ... that's my father, that's my mother, that's my son, Sacred .. where the dreaming whispers hope for everyone. In the silence of the grottoes of Australia's mighty land, stand together with the kooris, stand together, hand in hand, open eyes to endless beauty, and to spirits, far and near, for Australia is my country, it is sacred to me here. Ah, white man, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, where you walk, in silent worship, and you whisper poems, too, where you tread, like me, in wonder, and your eyes are filled with tears, and you see the tracks you've travelled down your fifty thousand years. by Denis Kevans (1939-2005) From the Book: "Ah, White Man, Have You Any Sacred Sites?", 1985 [ISBNO 9593 073]. It was written by Denis Kevans as a reply to Hugh Morgan (Western Mining Company) when he accused Aboriginals of being "pagans" for opposing the Noonkanbah mining project in 1984.

Decolonising the Mind - Ghillar Michael Anderson

Decolonising the Mind (Excerpt) - Ghillar Michael Anderson, 2015 Ghillar Michael Anderson exposes the consequences of the insidious nature of colonial social engineering which used the 'dog tag' to divide against First Nations. People issued the 'dog tag' or 'exemption certificate' were 'exempted' from being Aboriginal and partially accepted into the colonial society on its terms, namely they were not allowed to associate with their own kind, known as the 'grassroots communities'. Many descendants of the 'dog tag' families now have political influence and form the "Black Wall' in Aboriginal Affairs, doing the work of the colonisers to assimilate grassroots. This relates to the 'Stockholm Syndrome' Bejam Noonuccal aka Denis Walker discussed. A classic example is the current 'Recognise' campaign to coerce First Nations into accepting being included in the colonial Australian Constitution which is still an Act of the British parliament.

STOLEN WAGES PETITION Why should't we be allowed to Claim our families Stolen Wages back if they have died? My Indigenous mother worked on a cattle station for nine years without a day off and was never paid a cent. She is like so many Indigenous people whose money was taken by the Queensland Government under the 'Protection Act'. The Government have recently started a State Scheme to provide some monies to those people who had wages withheld for the work they performed. Unfortunately the Government has added whats called a 'Sunset Clause' which means if your family member died before 09 May 2002 you would not be entitled to claim any of their hard earned wages at all. This is very unfair as the Government has made millions of dollars in interest from my mothers wages and so many other Indigenous people's wages. My mother and her sisters where treated like slaves and I ask the Queensland Government to pay ALL their stolen wages back regardless of when they died.

Australian Senate to consider supporting return of Aboriginal warrior's shield ABC report The Australian Senate is to consider joining with the NSW Parliament in calling for the return of an Aboriginal warrior's shield used during Cook's first landing in Australia. In 1770, two men of the Gweagal people, one known as Cooman and one unknown warrior, tried to stop James Cook and two boat-loads of marines from landing at Botany Bay. It was the moment that began the British colonisation of Aboriginal country and the first contact between the two cultures. Cooman was shot and wounded in the incident and dropped his shield when the two warriors ran from the confrontation. Cook then took the shield and a number of spears. A descendant of Cooman, Rodney Kelly, has been campaigning to have Cooman's shield returned from the British Museum. He also wants the spears returned from Cambridge University. The New South Wales Parliament has passed a motion acknowledging that the shield and spears are rightfully owned by the Gweagal people and should be returned, and supported Mr Kelly in his efforts to have the artefacts returned. David Shoebridge, MLC, who put the motion to the NSW Parliament, said the artefacts represented the moment when Aboriginal people lost their isolation from European colonial expansion. Cooman and another Gweagal warrior confronting Lt James Cook PHOTO: Cooman and another Gweagal warrior confronting Lt James Cook in 1770 (William MacLeod 1899) "You can't not be moved by the symbolism of it," he said. "They tell of this extraordinary moment when these two brave men from the Gweagal clan stood up and faced off boat-loads of marines at the first moments of conflict and that first moment of Aboriginal resistance. "It was extreme bravery. This tall ship with sails ... long-boats full of marines in their bright red uniforms and their muskets, coming ashore. "They would never have seen anything like it before. But they had the extraordinary bravery of actually standing there and defending their land and resisting that first landing." The motion was passed in what Mr Shoebridge described as "one of those good moments in the New South Wales Parliament". "It takes a lot to get a consensus position particularly in the New South Wales upper house," he said. Since then Senator Rachel Siewert has tabled a similar motion to the Australian Senate, to be considered on Tuesday October 11, a few days before Mr Kelly leaves for London. Senator Siewert's proposal extended the support to consular assistance, which she said would have many practical benefits for Mr Kelly, especially in his discussions with the British Museum. She was hopeful the Senate would join with the NSW Government in providing support. "I would like to think that our government thinks this is an important issue and that these items should be returned to Australia," she said. "And I hope that the [British] museum and the British government at the level they need to be involved in is supportive of that too." Mr Shoebridge said the proposed consular assistance would be especially useful should a decision by the British Museum to return the shield require the approval of the UK Parliament. Mr Kelly said he would be meeting with the British Museum and that they had indicated they were prepared to discuss ideas such as a permanent loan. However Mr Kelly said the artefacts should be returned, not lent back. VIDEO: Rodney Kelly will go to England to lobby for the return of Cooman's shield (full video) (ABC News)

Balgo man ariives in perth after being shot by police in broome

UPDATE: BALGO MAN SHOT BY POLICE Granddaughter disputes police account of incident (details here) Report from ABC Report 4:00pm (Eastern DS time) Officers were called to a disturbance involving "a number of offenders" at a property on Gubinge Road in Cable Beach about 8:30pm on Monday. Police said the man, who is from the remote Aboriginal community of Balgo, almost 700 kilometres east of Broome, confronted them armed with a knife. One of the officers drew a service revolver and shot him, police said. He was taken to Broome Hospital. Police said his injuries were not believed to be life threatening. He has been stabilised and flown from Broome to Royal Perth Hospital for surgery (Video:arriving in Perth). The shooting occurred on a bush path just 100 metres from the exclusive resort precinct at Broome's Cable Beach. Police say that the victim 'slashed tyres, threatened police with knife' Superintendent Allan Adams from Broome Police said the man slashed three tyres on a taxi before threatening the driver with the knife. He said the man then used the knife to threaten police sent to investigate the incident. "They [the officers] engaged that offender and during that engagement there was repeated requests for the knife to be dropped," he said. Superintendent Adams said police were also talking to members of the Balgo community based in Broome to explain why he was shot. Pearl Town Taxis manager Warren Wallace said there was an argument before the man attacked the driver. "[The driver] picked up a hail from a taxi rank in Broome, [the passengers] wanted to go to a bottle shop. "The bottle shop then said the people were banned and wouldn't serve them. "He asked for the fare, the male occupant got upset and angry and attacked him basically ... it was life threatening." But the granddaughter of the victim, who was in the car at the time, disputed this account, saying the driver was abusive after demanding the fare. But she conceded her grandfather did slash the tyres. Ms Loomoo said her grandfather was shot very quickly after the police arrived. "I been just run, and I been look, and I was crying," she said.

"It’s not a solid victory now but just the weight, feeling that weight that I’ve been carrying for the last couple months is lifting. I feel like I could breathe right now," says Floris White Bull. We feature the reactions to government’s intervention from some of the thousands of Native Americans who have gathered along the Cannonball River by the Standing Rock Sioux Reservation to resist the pipeline’s construction.

Group claims video shows Tasmanian Tiger

Group claims video shows Tasmanian Tiger A video possibly showing a long-thought extinct Tasmanian tiger has been posted online by a group that believes the thylacine can still be found on mainland Australia. The animal was filmed in the Adelaide Hills in February this year with the video posted on Monday on the Facebook page of the Thylacine Awareness Group. It shows an animal with a long, thick tail and what could be stripes on the body and amateur researcher Neil Water says the group believes it is a small thylacine. "We believe our footage to be footage of a small thylacine moving around through the Adelaide Hills only 20 minutes from the CBD of Adelaide," Mr Waters said. "You can see the body of the animal, it does appear to have some sort dark discolouration which may or may not be stripes. "It has a long, stiff, pointy tail. Where the tail connects to the body is very wide at the base which is typical of the thylacine." The last known Tasmanian Tiger died in the Hobart Zoo in 1936. But there have been numerous unconfirmed sightings over the years, some in Tasmania and some on mainland Australia. Intensive hunting along with the introduction of dogs and the loss of habitat have been blamed for the extinction of the species.

88.9FM profile Leon's story in 'Let's Talk': Police Brutality,

In October 2013, Brisbane Indigenous Media Association worker and Gumbaynggirr man Leon Petrou was tasered, capsicum sprayed and bashed by Queensland police officers, in a case all too common to many Aboriginal people across the country. Despite the extent of his injuries, illustrated in shocking pictures taken a week after, he was charged with seven counts of assaulting and obstructing police. It’s a common practice known as ‘stacking the charge sheet’. Leon was acquitted of all charges last year, but the impact of this encounter has been far-reaching. 88.9FM profile Leon's story in 'Let's Talk': Police Brutality, Host Amy McQuire delves into the issues around police brutality with former Queensland police officer and First Nations man Matt Bond, former Crime and Corruption Commission Indigenous Complaints Officer Trudie Broderick and Leon himself.

Shakespeare in 'Language' No Fear - Sonnet 27 Q&A

No Fear - Sonnet 127 Shakespeare in 'Language' In the old age black was not counted fair, Or if it were, it bore not beauty’s name. But now is black beauty’s successive heir, And beauty slandered with a bastard shame. For since each hand hath put on nature’s pow'r, Fairing the foul with art’s false borrowed face, Sweet beauty hath no name, no holy bow'r, But is profaned, if not lives in disgrace. Therefore my mistress' eyes are raven black, Her eyes so suited, and they mourners seem At such who, not born fair, no beauty lack, Sland'ring creation with a false esteem. Yet so they mourn, becoming of their woe, That every tongue says beauty should look so.

Spit Mask on youth in QLD

Brisbane teen in spit mask: Images show 17yo prisoner in restraints at Wacol jail The 17-year-old was on remand in the Brisbane Correctional Centre at Wacol when the incident happened in 2013. The images, first published in The Courier-Mail, showed the boy was restrained with handcuffs attached to a body restraint after he ignored warnings and allegedly pressed the emergency intercom in 2013. He was reportedly left alone for an hour with the spit mask over his head. Peter Lyons, the director of the Prisoners' Legal Service, said the boy had reported use of excessive force by the officers. He said the boy was in a cell by himself and had no reading materials, no television and his visits were limited. Mr Lyons also said the mattress was taken out of the cell so the boy could not sleep during the day. "When I look at the video I was appalled by what I saw," he said. "[The boy] was pressing an intercom button incessantly and yelling under a door — I subsequently found out that was relating to him asking for more toilet paper. "The next thing you see on the video is ... up to six officers entering the cell asking him to face the wall and kneel down. "There's a lengthy conversation between the prison officers and him - it ends up with him having handcuffs attached to him, and then placed on a restraining belt and then what's commonly known as a spit mask placed on his head.

The video, which surfaced on social media on Saturday night, shows a woman in a Port Adelaide scarf waving her middle finger at Betts before throwing the banana in his direction as he celebrated a goal in the forward pocket at Adelaide Oval ...

WARNING - This propaganda video does not represent the grass roots views of Aboriginal people. It is shown here for the general interest of activists only. ABC and Recognition have lined up two people to debate Recognition, Andrew Bolt representing the racist colonisers and indigenous MP Linda Burney representing the assimilated Aboriginal people. Neither of them represent grass roots First Nations People 'Country' or the Culture. This video is not only deplorable but treacherous. The views of Sovereign Union and all other Aboriginal Activists around Australia DO NOT SUPPORT RECOGNITION. When entering parliament, Linda Burner, has pledged her allegiance to the Queen of England, thus turning her back on the inherited culture and sovereignty status of the Nations on this continent. Therefore she does not represent First Natiions peoples who continue to, or are repatriating, their culture and the stories of The Dreaming.

Ah White Man - Where are your sacred sites

AH, WHITE MAN, HAVE YOU ANY SACRED SITES? Ah, white man, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, where you walk, in silent worship, and you whisper poems, too, where you tread, like me, in wonder, and your eyes are filled with tears, and you see the tracks you've travelled down your fifty thousand years. I am searching round Australia, I am searching, night and day, for a site, to you so sacred that you won't give it away for a bit of coloured paper, say a Church you're knocking down, or the Rocks, your nation's birthplace, by the bridge, in Sydney town. Your cathedrals I have entered, I have seen the empty aisles where a few knelt down in sorrow, where were all the children's smiles? Big cathedrals, full of beauty, opal glass, and gleaming gold, and an old man, in an overcoat, who had crept in from the cold. Your schools, I drifted through them, heard the sound of swishing canes, heard the yell of angry teachers crushing flowers in their brains, heard the bark up on the rostrum where the powers had their say, wouldn't children's hearts be sacred, though they're made, like mine, of clay? Where's your wonder? Where's your worship? Where's your sense of holy awe? When I see those little children torn apart by fear of war, what is sacred to you, white man, what is sacred to your clan? Are your totems rainbow-feathered? Is there dreaming in you, man? Sacred ... sacred ... sacred ... gee you chuck that word about, and when echoes answer sacred ... sacred louder still you shout, and the echoes come in patterns, and then, louder, every one till they meet, like waves together, and go bang! just like a gun. Sacred ... hesitating ... now, a film is reeling through my brain, and through my memory, of our sacred rendez-vous, of our meeting, of our parting, of my tears, as sweet as ice, of my numb incomprehension of a shattered paradise. Sacred, oh so sacred, was our sacred rendez-vous, and your ferocious anger when you found we weren't like you, but if I should make an act of faith, in a voice, both firm and clear, that there's something sacred to me, you starting drowning in your beer. What is sacred to you, white man, what is sacred to your heart? Is Australia just a quarry for the bauxite bells to start? Where the forests are forgotten, and the tinkling of the bell of the bell-bird in the mountains, is just something more to sell? Ah, brother, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, but the rivers, clear as crystal, smell like sewerfulls of spew from the pipe and pump polluters, and the nukes that fleck the foam, Would you let a man, with dirty boots, go walking through your home? Sacred means that ... sacred ... it's a place where spirits rise, with the rainbow wings of sunset, on the edge of paradise, Sacred ... that's my father, that's my mother, that's my son, Sacred .. where the dreaming whispers hope for everyone. In the silence of the grottoes of Australia's mighty land, stand together with the kooris, stand together, hand in hand, open eyes to endless beauty, and to spirits, far and near, for Australia is my country, it is sacred to me here. Ah, white man, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, where you walk, in silent worship, and you whisper poems, too, where you tread, like me, in wonder, and your eyes are filled with tears, and you see the tracks you've travelled down your fifty thousand years. by Denis Kevans (1939-2005) From the Book: "Ah, White Man, Have You Any Sacred Sites?", 1985 [ISBNO 9593 073]. Written and performed by Denis Kevans as a reply to Hugh Morgan (Western Mining Company) when he accused Aboriginals of being "pagans" for opposing the Noonkanbah mining project in 1984.

Call for Aboriginal Graveside Fees to be refused

CALL FOR GRAVEYARD FEES TO BE DROPPED FOR STRUGGLING ABORIGINAL FAMILIES Burying a loved one should be made more affordable to avoid those living on the poverty line being left at mortuaries for "longer than they should be", according to the owner of an Aboriginal funeral service in New South Wales. Wally Stewart, funeral director from Dream Time Funerals in Narooma said in one case, a deceased member of the south coast Indigenous community was left for almost two months while the family tried to gather money for funeral payments. "Our community can't afford it. We've got a high employment rate down here, our people live below the poverty line, our people are lucky to pay their living expenses," he said. Scullion has backed calls for cemetery fees to be re-examined. Link to article: http://www.abc.net.au/news/2016-07-24/aboriginal-burials-funerals-fees-scrapped/7577638

Tymunna Clements - AMAZING AFL TRICK SHOTS

AMAZING AFL TRICK SHOTS You don't have to be an AFL supporter to love this. Tymunna Clements from the Northern Territory showing some amazing skill. Darwin teen, Tymunna Clements has joined the ranks of those talented few who have a seemingly impossible mastery over a ball, getting shots in the hoop off roofs, from yards away and with twists that get us shaking our head in disbelief. No doubt he has spent hours on end practicing his skills and his online videos have been going viral for good reason. While Tymunna has taken a break from playing AFL due to a left hip injury, he says that he's back in top form and for those living in Darwin, you may get to see his skills in real time on the field this season once he decides which team to play for.

Activist slams Hanson and her voters

'Is it any f**king surprise really that someone like Pauline Hanson, that is indicative of the mind-sets of the greater white Australian populace to elect her in the first place, is allowed a platform like this.' said Mr Dunn-Velasco He said seeing Pauline Hanson's return to politics made him 'sick to his stomach' as her election represents that her controversial views opposing multiculturalism must be widely held across the country, particularly in Queensland which has the second largest indigenous population in Australia. 'I am sick to my stomach not because I despise this person in Pauline Hanson, I do, but she is greater and indicative of something much larger and much more rampant out there that we all face every day,' he said. 'In order to change this we need to change the mind-sets and hearts of the factory workers in Ipswich that voted her. This ain't gonna stop until this illegal genocidal state is dissolved.'

PARALLELS: Totemic Law & Herdalic Law

CULTURAL WARNING: Images of sacred carved trees Understanding the law of heraldry, from which British common law evolved, can assist when claiming Country by proving connection and bloodline back to Country. Ghillar, Michael Anderson, visits the Court of Chivalry which was founded by King Richard III in 1484 to make rulings on who are the rightful inheritors of symbols and coats of arms. Similar principles apply with First Nations and Peoples who are the rightful inheritors of totems, Country and symbols. Ghillar explains how the destruction of Carved trees at Collymungle & other sacred objects is part of the invaders' deliberate strategy to inhibit FNP being able to prove connection to Country.

The Court of Chivalry was established by Richard III in 1484 and protects the ownership of totems and symbols for the inheritors.

Black Lives Matter

Prominent US activist Tory Russell joined a rally in Melbourne on Sunday where about 3,500 people gathered in support of the Black Lives Matter movement. Tory grew up in Ferguson, Missouri, and is a founder of Hands Up United, an organisation that formed in the wake of the police shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in 2014. "Aboriginal people in Australia … black people in the United States or anywhere in the diaspora — the oppression is here," he told ABC News Breakfast. "I'm glad to be here and meeting your organisers and really keeping it going strong. "They were talking about the same issues of detention and incarceration as we have [in the US]." Mr Russell said he was not surprised to see the movement gain international traction, because the issues were global.

Kakadu Plums

Marnybi or Kakadu, bush or billygoat plum is cherished in traditional First Nation peoples medicine for its amazing healing properties. It grows in abundance after the wet across the Top End of Australia. But fruit in Wadeye is showing the highest concentration of vitamin C compared to other regions. While First Nations people have known its value for centuries, the plant is fast becoming a hot ticket item in the Western world with international pharmaceutical, cosmetic and superfood markets all knocking.

I am my Homelands

I AM MY HOMELANDS More Videos - Homelands explained:- http://www.sovereignunion.mobi/content/videos-homelands-explained Homelands are communities established by Aboriginal people so that they can maintain their connection with their traditional, ancestral land. These communities have lower levels of social problems and significantly better health outcomes for Aboriginal people -- as well as a strengthened connection to culture, language and spirituality. With proper services like health, education, water and shelter, people can be healthier and live longer on homelands. Aboriginal families too, are strongest when they can stay connected to their homelands. Right now the government of Western Australia is stripping funds from 129 homelands and turning 10 small communities into towns - this effectively will increase many of the poblems of the larger communities including more access to drugs and alcohol - and youth suicide.

Looking back on the history of the band, but also the political and social climate of Brisbane in the 1970's and 80's, the film delves into why Aboriginal people needed a voice to stand up against a conservative and racist government. As Dennis Conlon says, "We're not into politics, we play music." However, being in a band at the time and being Aboriginal, Mop and the Dropouts couldn't help but be political.

Decolonising the Mind - Ghillar Michael Anderson

Decolonising the Mind - Ghillar Michael Anderson Ghillar Michael Anderson exposes the consequences of the insidious nature of colonial social engineering which used the 'dog tag' to divide against First Nations. People issued the 'dog tag' or 'exemption certificate' were 'exempted' from being Aboriginal and partially accepted into the colonial society on its terms, namely they were not allowed to associate with their own kind, known as the 'grassroots communities'. Many descendants of the 'dog tag' families now have political influence and form the "Black Wall' in Aboriginal Affairs, doing the work of the colonisers to assimilate grassroots. This relates to the 'Stockholm Syndrome' Bejam Noonuccal aka Denis Walker discussed. A classic example is the current 'Recognise' campaign to coerce First Nations into accepting being included in the colonial Australian Constitution which is still an Act of the British parliament.

One of the Mob - ABC Australian Story - Trailer

One of the Mob - Trailer/Overview (ABC Australian Story) Filmmaker David Batty has made some of the best loved TV shows and documentaries about Indigenous life. He and his Aboriginal collaborator Francis Kelly struck gold 15 years ago with the TV series Bush Mechanics, their hilarious take on getting around the outback with no roadside assistance. David joined the media organisation CAAMA (Central Australian Aboriginal Association), and later made television programs in local languages for the Indigenous population, as well as historical documentaries. Seven years ago, a shocking personal tragedy took David to the brink. The solace he found through his work with his Indigenous brothers would save him. Now David Batty is back with a new screen adventure Black As set in crocodile-infested Arnhem Land, echoing the cult classic Bush Mechanics.

United 'VOTE NO' protest begins at Circular Quay 2015

Ghillar, Michael Anderson with activist and anti-Recognise campaigner Alice Haines at Circular Quay in 2015 - Video captured on the march to 'Kirribilli House ' (Prime Ministers Residence) on the day of a 'Secret Meeting' of the 'Recognition' propaganda campaigners known as the 'Recognition' Summit hosted by Tony Abbott. NITV filmed a report at the demonstration outside Kirribilli but it was 'pulled' before going to air, probably due to the government policy for Aboriginal funded organisations to demonstrate support for 'Recognition' or else.

"Eagle and Condor"- Film Trailer

This trailer for a film on the Eagle and Condor follows the ongoing fulfillment of the prophecy that when north and south come into balance we will have peace. The Inca prophecies say that now, in this age, when the eagle of the North and the condor of the South fly together, the Earth will awaken. The eagles of the North cannot be free without the condors of the South. Now it's happening. Now is the time. The Aquarian Age is an era of light, an age of awakening, an age of returning to natural ways. Our generation is here to help begin this age, to prepare through different schools to understand the message of the heart, intuition, and nature. Native people speak with the Earth. When consciousness awakens, we can fly high like the eagle, or like the condor... More: - http://www.realpeoplesmedia.org/news/2016/3/27/the-inca-prophecy-of-the-eagle-and-condor

Rodney & Crew are preparing to embark on a journey to England this year to return the artifacts stolen by Cook & Banks upon first contact in 1770. Upon arrival in the UK, Rodney will engage in a speaking tour, educating the population of England about the true nature of Britain's first contact with Australia's Original inhabitants. As a direct descendant of the man whom stood on the shore as the crew of the Endeavor landed, Rodney is the keeper of the oral history of that event that marked the beginning of British colonisation in Australia. This momentous journey to the UK will shift the narrative of a peaceful settlement and help the global population understand the predicament of Aboriginal Australia today. Please consider donating to the crowdfunding event to cover airfares, accommodation and the speaking tour for Rodney & Crew to retrieve the Gweagal shield from the British museum and bring it back to where it belongs http://www.gofundme.com/gweagalshield

Turnbull's answer to Shortens Treaty

Firstly Shorten lowers his voice and mutters a Treaty under his breath, then Turnbull referring First Nations people as 'First Australians'., says he is disappointed that Shorten mentioned a Treaty. - Just a lot of hot wind and hoo-haa by both. BUT, how can First Nations people be the 'First Australians'? - Australians don't come from this continent or have a heritage that goes back many millennium here. Aboriginal people were in their category of flora and fauna for over a hundred years after the colonisers started calling themselves Australians.

Q&A Shorten on Treaty

SHORTEN AND HIS VERY EVASIVE ANSWER ON TREATY [NOTE" They are not talking about a Sovereign Treaty - just a domestic treaty/agreement because the governments claim to sovereignty is unproven - therefore the Sovereign First Nations people would be making a Treaty with a non-sovereign entity. This would not be recognised internationally and could be twisted or reneged on, at the whim of government of the day] VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: Mr Shorten's comments on Q&A last night came after Labor's star Indigenous recruit to the Senate, Patrick Dodson, revived debate on the issue last month. Mr Shorten said there were arguments about the "best form of reconciliation" for Indigenous people and he was open to discussions about a treaty. A treaty would be a separate formal agreement between the Government and Indigenous people with legal outcomes. "Do I think that we should have our First Australians mentioned in our national birth certificate, the constitution? Yes. Do I think we need to move beyond just constitutional recognition to talking about what a post-constitutional recognition settlement with Indigenous people looks like? Yes I do," Mr Shorten said. "Could it look like a treaty?" host Tony Jones asked. "Yes." "Is that something you might move towards in government, a treaty?" "I just have a sense, Tony, maybe you think I'm being a little harsh on you, that there's a little bit of gotcha going on here," Mr Shorten said. "No, no, it's not gotcha, it's a question based on what you just said when you said yes I assumed certain things," Jones replied. "Yeah, but you can. I think you were just surprised to hear me say yes ... I do think that this country is not handling Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people well ... I do think there needs to be a discussion about should you have a treaty or shouldn't you have a treaty, but what I'm not going to do is give all the answers on one spot at one time." 'I do not see why that has to be a secret': Shorten

Bush Heritage in partnership with Birriliburu Rangers and Cent...

Bush Heritage in partnership with Birriliburu Rangers and Central Desert Land & Community In April 2013, Birriliburu in Western Australia was declared an Indigenous Protected Area (IPA) under a Federal Government program, enabling Traditional Owners to manage their land as a reserve. Since that time, Bush Heritage has been fostering a partnership with the Martu people through their organisation Mungarlu Ngurrankatja Rirraunkaja (MNR) and program managers from Central Desert Land & Community. Employing Traditional Owners from Wiluna and other communities, the Indigenous Ranger Program enables Martu people to manage their country and protect its outstanding conservation values. The program brings together traditional knowledge and science; providing an opportunity for cross-cultural exchange and better social, economic and environmental outcomes for the people and their land. The Birriliburu IPA is vast; at 6.6 million hectares, it’s nearly the size of Tasmania. Given this size, strategic management areas have been identified around significant conservation, cultural and heritage assets. Katjarra (Carnarvon Range), in the south-western pocket of Birriliburu, is one such area – where Birriliburu rangers are leading fire management, threatened species, feral animal and bush tucker work.

Inuit People on the daily earth wobble, sun moon and stars out...

INUET PEOPLE HAVE A MESSAGE TO NASA & THE WORLD A new warning has come to NASA from the Inuits. They are warning that the change in climate is not due to global warming but rather, because of the Earth shifting a bit. The Inuits are local people that live in the Arctic regions of Canada, the United States and Greenland. They are excellent weather forecasters and so were their ancestors. Presently they are warning NASA that the cause of change in weather, earthquakes etc, are not due to global warming as the world thinks. They also report that They state that the earth has shifted or "wobbled". "Their sky has changed!" The elders declare that the sun rises at a different position now, not where it used to previously. They also have longer daylight to hunt now, the sun is much higher than earlier, and it gets warmer much quickly. Other elders across the north also confirmed the same thing about the sky changing when interviewed. More: http://www.whitewolfpack.com/2015/04/earth-has-shifted-inuit-elders-issue.html

Confessions of a D Girl: Colorism - Chika Okoro

GETTING AN 'A' JOB WITH DARK SKIN Confessions of a D Girl: Colorism and Global Standards of Beauty by Chika Okoro | TEDxStanford If you look like me, you’re used to colorism, says Stanford Graduate Business School student Chika Okoro. She calls the phenomenon known as colorism – discrimination against those with a darker skin tone -- “both as sinister and as subtle as racism.” In a world where light skin, light eyes and long “real” hair are sought after features, Okoro tells us how she copes, and what we can do to unlearn this deep rooted, destructive mindset. Chika Okoro is a second year MBA student at Stanford. Passionate about race and gender equality, she is excited to raise awareness about the many issues that women of color face around the world. She hopes that her talk will start a conversation about important issues that people are less vocal about today. While at Stanford Chika is an Arbuckle Leadership Fellow providing leadership coaching and training to MBA 1st year students. Before coming to Stanford she worked at Procter & Gamble as an assistant brand manager and spent last summer at Google as a product-marketing manager. Chika holds a bachelor's degree from Harvard University where she wrote her honors thesis on race and identity in the black community. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community

'SORRY SPEECH' 'MOCKERY'

'SORRY SPEECH' 'MOCKERY' This politician is trivialising Kevin Rudd's 2008 Sorry Day Speech by using it as a template for his message on his election campaign. It demonstrates much disrespect for the First Nations people from the 'Stolen Generation' who desperately needed to hear the word 'Sorry' from the perpetrators of their forced displacement from their family and culture. Although Rudd's words were not followed up with compensation or indeed it didn't stop the removal of Aboriginal children, this is an unjustifiable mockery of the Sorry speech.

Brisbane Blacks

Brisbane 1982: The Commonwealth Games were on. A land eights movement was taking place, and a little known band from Cherbourg was about to make history. Despite what Dennis 'Mop' Conlon knew when writing the song Brisbane Blacks, he could not have anticipated it would go on to become an anthem and define a period in time. Looking back on the history of the band, but also the political and social climate of Brisbane in the 1970's and 80's, the film delves into why Aboriginal people needed a voice to stand up against a conservative and racist government. As Dennis Conlon says, "We're not into politics, we play music." However, being in a band at the time and being aboriginal, Mop and the Dropouts couldn't help but be political.

The NBN downgrading and slow expansion to remote communities keeps many of our brothers and sisters out of touch with social media - the only place where they can be informed regarding the ongoing abuses, including 'Recognition'.

Lock.The.Gate.Alliance

"Stop polluting our land and waterways and make Glencore pay for closure and clean up at the McArthur River Mine" - that's the message from Traditional Owners from the Borroloola Indigenous clan groups in the Northern Territory who have traveled to Glencore in Sydney this morning. The peaceful action coincides with the company's AGM in Switzerland and an international day of action where local communities impacted by Glencore’s mines will highlight the impacts on the essentials of life and community. The Borroloola clan has been impacted by significant environmental problems caused by Glencore's reckless mining at McArthur River lead and zinc mine. The action was hosted by Action Aid, Mineral Policy Institute and the Borroloola clan groups of which a delegation of eight Elders and young people attended the action in Sydney. Share and like to support the Borroloola Indigenous clan groups in the NT. Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/Lock.The.Gate.Alliance #Glencore #makethempay #minerehab

Aurukun school closure - Cape York

Noel Pearson's 'Cape York Partnership' seems to have similar issues as many other disadvantaged regions across the continent, even though the ongoing funding this program receives is overwhelmingly more than any of the other regions. The Cape York Partnerships (CYP) is a 'Top Down approach' which is supposed to be the cutting edge innovation for the advancement of First Nations people, and the rest of the country is expected to replicate this 'comprehensive reform agenda'. Like the government's, Pearson thinks he knows better than the people themselves and refuses to follow the ideas and strategies from the grass roots level. Of-course there are examples of successful projects under the CYP in places where the abuse, suppression and displacements haven't taken such a toll, but there is plenty of successful projects outside Cape York region too, that can claim great successes on a much smaller budget, or in some cases no budget at all, but using a grass roots approach. There never has been and never will be quick fixes for people who are victims of long term systematic abuses, But with self-determination the peoples can start turning this around in the time that is needed after many generations of social and geographical seclusion and debasement.

Te Puea Marae open their doors to the homeless

Māori open their doors to the homeless In Auckland marae is opening its doors to homeless families as the housing crisis worsens in the region. Te Puea Marae spokesperson Hurimoana Dennis says everyone is welcome regardless of the colour of their skin. Te Puea Marae is living up to its name. Te Puea Marae spokesperson Hurimoana Dennis says, “For our Te Puea family, we follow the wishes of our leader Te Puea Herangi. She cared for everyone no matter where they were from.” It seems homelessness has hit a crisis point in Auckland with families reportedly having to sleep in cars around the city. Te Puea has been helping their community for some time. “They know that this place is available to them. But people from the Pacific, Asians, we'll look after them. But first our Māori families,” says Dennis. Like Te Puea, other Auckland marae are willing to open their doors. Te Māhurehure in Pt Chev say they've already housed one family for a week for koha, and Te Tira Hou Marae says they too will open their doors, to anyone regardless of race. Tāmaki Makaurau MP Peeni Henare says, “We should ensure that the purpose of these marae are fulfilled. The role of the marae is to care for people, to extend hospitality to visitors.” It's reported that WINZ pays up to a week’s accommodation costs to families in hardship to stay in hotels. Henare says, “They need them to open their doors, and for the government to pay for their accommodation expenses, like power and water. But, the important thing is that the government extend their services to assist.” Like the saying of Te Puea: "Work hard for the betterment of our people." http://www.maoritelevision.com/news/regional/te-puea-marae-open-their-doors-homeless

Qld cotton irrigation killing the Darling River While Broken Hill is running out of water, thousands of bales of cotton are being harvested up river at Cubbie Station in Qld. I recently visited the point where the Culgoa River gets diverted into gigantic irrigation bays to grow cotton and was astounded at the size of the irrigation channels. Is it fair that so much water is used to grow cotton, while the Darling River slowly dies and the people of Broken Hill and the farmers and communities of the lower Darling run out of water? The Murray Darling Basin Plan, that the Nationals gutted, is failing. The Greens want this crisis front and centre of the election campaign, and for us all to have a serious discussion about the sustainability of current practices and the fairness of water allocations. Sovereign Union does not support any political arty or the illegal government - however we do like Jeremy Buckingham's work.

The secret bombing in East Kimberley

Kalumburu Community (formerly known as Drysdale River Mission) is the northern-most settlement in Western Australia, situated just inland from the north Kimberley coast. In the same region as Oombulgurri, the Aboriginal Community in the Kimberley that the WA Government closed down in 2010. Close to the Kalumburu mission there was a secret RAAF base during WWII. Vanessa Adam's grandmother, Dolores Cheinmora, was a young Aboriginal girl living a traditional life in the bush with her family. She witnessed planes flying out from a cave but did not understand what they were or what they were doing. She was terrified and kept the secret all her life. In September 1943, the Japanese bombed Kalumburu Mission, killing a Benedictine priest and five Aboriginal people, including a mother and baby. It was only later that Vanessa's grandmother made the connection between what she had seen in the bush and the deaths of her relatives in the bombing. Just before she died, she finally shared the story she had carried in her heart all those years and Vanessa has produced this painting to record her family's history for future generations.

'Out of Africa' theory flawed - Christopher Stringer

First Nations people already know we have been here for eternity because our ancestors have told us so. People who are unfamiliar with this ancient culture look to science to tell them where the First Nations people came from, and try to tell us that we have only been here for 50,000 years. This seems to be because is suits them to hold onto the 'Out of Africa' theory. However, while many 'Western' scientists still cling to the 'Out of Africa' theory tooth and nail, the cracks are always widening on that theory. Christopher Stringer, one of the world's foremost paleoanthropologists and a founder and most powerful advocate of the Out of Africa' theory is one of the scientists who is having rethink on his original thoughts ... there are too many holes.

Peter Norman and Australian Racism

AUSTRALIA'S RACISM OSTRACISED A WHITE MAN Peter Norman, a silver medal winner in the 1968 Olympic Games was ostracised by white Australia for wearing a medal in support of the American Black Power movement on the podium. The Australian Olympic track team refused to send him to Munich in 1972 despite Norman posting Olympic qualifying times in both the 100 and 200 metres. Further salt was rubbed into an open wound in 2000 when the Australian Olympic Committee did not invite him to participate in the celebrations surrounding the Sydney Olympics. He attended as a guest of the United States Track and Field team. Here is a white man who has joined the First Nations people of being written out of the history books.

Turnbull's Empathy

THE 2016 BUDGET FURTHERS THE CONTEMPT FOR SELF-DETERMINATION - Another Budget to shaft our people, Despite the majority of First Nations people being against the Recognition campaign since realising it's contempt and offering no rights, the government is ploughing more money into it. This is has been a focus on both major political parties since John Howard initiated the idea of force assimilation and kill off the people's aspirations of self-determination. ▶ FUNDING BOOST FOR CONSTITUTIONAL RECOGNITION The Prime Minister’s Referendum Council and the Recognise campaign will share nearly $15 million in funding. - Further funding for forced assimilation ▶ CHANGES TO THE DOLE The Work for the Dole program is being 'reformed', the Government said. “From 1 October 2016, the most ready job seekers (Stream A job seekers) will enter the Work for the Dole phase after 12 months … instead of the current six month,” according to budget papers. ▶ BAILOUT FOR THE ILC The Indigenous Land Corporation will be getting a one-off loan of up to $65 million to pay off some of its debt from the controversial purchase of the Ayers Rock Resort. - The same Indigenous Land Corporation that bleeds our people dry and gives the jobs to whites. ▶ CONTEMPT FOR FIRST NATIONS ENTERORISES THROUGH IBA The ILC’s sister service, Indigenous Business Australia, will lose $23.1 million in funding. The government said the money will be going back to the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet and redirected to “Indigenous entrepreneurs”. ▶ HEALTH SPENDING GOING UP EVERY YEAR The government is predicting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health programs will cost it nearly a billion dollars by 2020. For the 2016-17 financial year, the ATSI health spend is estimated to be $798 million. - same old, same old ▶ MORE JOBS BUT DETAIL LACKING ON INDIGENOUS ASPECTS The Treasurer unveiled an 'ambitious' plan to get over 100,000 young Australians employed in the next few years. It’s part of a new program called PaTH (Prepare – Trial – Hire). It’ll see mandatory pre-employment training for jobseekers, tens of thousands of internships on offer and rewards for companies hiring young people. - There is no specific Indigenous element to the program ▶ NEW UNI PROGRAM The Indigenous Student Success Program is the latest brainchild from the government to get more Indigenous people completing tertiary education. It will see nearly $10 million redirected to the Education Department but will see the ITAS – Tertiary Tuition scheme scrapped. The new program will be outcomes based and give higher education institutions with higher Indigenous completions more money. ▶ MORE MONEY FOR AIATSIS The Australian Institute for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies will get $10 million a year for the next four years to preserve and protect Indigenous artefacts. AIATSIS was given a funding bump in the last Budget and endorsed by the Prime Minister in this year’s Closing the Gap address.

I am my Homelands

Homelands are communities established by Aboriginal people so that they can maintain their connection with their traditional, ancestral land. These communities have lower levels of social problems and significantly better health outcomes for Aboriginal people -- as well as a strengthened connection to culture, language and spirituality. With proper services like health, education, water and shelter, people can be healthier and live longer on homelands. Aboriginal families too, are strongest when they can stay connected to their homelands.

Henry Reynolds - Questions on the Frontier Wars

Drawing on research and fieldwork conducted for his latest book Forgotten War, acclaimed historian and writer Henry Reynolds outlines the depth and breadth of violence and conflict between white colonists and Aborigines, in Australia’s own forgotten frontier wars. Australia is dotted with memorials to soldiers who fought in wars overseas. Why are there no official memorials or commemorations of the wars that were fought on Australian soil between Aborigines and white colonists? Why is it more controversial to talk about the frontier wars now than it was 100 years ago?

Ah White Man - Where are your sacred sites

AH, WHITE MAN, HAVE YOU ANY SACRED SITES? Ah, white man, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, where you walk, in silent worship, and you whisper poems, too, where you tread, like me, in wonder, and your eyes are filled with tears, and you see the tracks you've travelled down your fifty thousand years. I am searching round Australia, I am searching, night and day, for a site, to you so sacred that you won't give it away for a bit of coloured paper, say a Church you're knocking down, or the Rocks, your nation's birthplace, by the bridge, in Sydney town. Your cathedrals I have entered, I have seen the empty aisles where a few knelt down in sorrow, where were all the children's smiles? Big cathedrals, full of beauty, opal glass, and gleaming gold, and an old man, in an overcoat, who had crept in from the cold. Your schools, I drifted through them, heard the sound of swishing canes, heard the yell of angry teachers crushing flowers in their brains, heard the bark up on the rostrum where the powers had their say, wouldn't children's hearts be sacred, though they're made, like mine, of clay? Where's your wonder? Where's your worship? Where's your sense of holy awe? When I see those little children torn apart by fear of war, what is sacred to you, white man, what is sacred to your clan? Are your totems rainbow-feathered? Is there dreaming in you, man? Sacred ... sacred ... sacred ... gee you chuck that word about, and when echoes answer sacred ... sacred louder still you shout, and the echoes come in patterns, and then, louder, every one till they meet, like waves together, and go bang! just like a gun. Sacred ... hesitating ... now, a film is reeling through my brain, and through my memory, of our sacred rendez-vous, of our meeting, of our parting, of my tears, as sweet as ice, of my numb incomprehension of a shattered paradise. Sacred, oh so sacred, was our sacred rendez-vous, and your ferocious anger when you found we weren't like you, but if I should make an act of faith, in a voice, both firm and clear, that there's something sacred to me, you starting drowning in your beer. What is sacred to you, white man, what is sacred to your heart? Is Australia just a quarry for the bauxite bells to start? Where the forests are forgotten, and the tinkling of the bell of the bell-bird in the mountains, is just something more to sell? Ah, brother, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, but the rivers, clear as crystal, smell like sewerfulls of spew from the pipe and pump polluters, and the nukes that fleck the foam, Would you let a man, with dirty boots, go walking through your home? Sacred means that ... sacred ... it's a place where spirits rise, with the rainbow wings of sunset, on the edge of paradise, Sacred ... that's my father, that's my mother, that's my son, Sacred .. where the dreaming whispers hope for everyone. In the silence of the grottoes of Australia's mighty land, stand together with the kooris, stand together, hand in hand, open eyes to endless beauty, and to spirits, far and near, for Australia is my country, it is sacred to me here. Ah, white man, I am searching for the sites, sacred to you, where you walk, in silent worship, and you whisper poems, too, where you tread, like me, in wonder, and your eyes are filled with tears, and you see the tracks you've travelled down your fifty thousand years. by Denis Kevans (1939-2005) From the Book: "Ah, White Man, Have You Any Sacred Sites?", 1985 [ISBNO 9593 073]. It was written by Denis Kevans as a reply to Hugh Morgan (Western Mining Company) when he accused Aboriginals of being "pagans" for opposing the Noonkanbah mining project in 1984.

Former Aboriginal land council CEO Mark 'Jack' Johnson sued for more than $1.5m He was known as a savvy operator who wore a cowboy hat and prided himself on being "the best horse-breaker this side of the black stump". When Mark "Jack" Johnson took charge of a local Aboriginal land council in south-western Sydney he spearheaded plans to turn it into a multibillion-dollar property developer.

The last Yorik of the Saami Forests

The last Yorik of the Saami Forests Made for the United Nations, this documentary chronicles the logging damage that has taken place in the forests of Finnish Lapland over the past 50 years. Home to the indigenous Saami peoples, these Northern old growth forests are essential to Saami reindeer herding, a traditional way of life that the Saami hope to continue into future generations. Population growth in Finland has created economic pressure - prompting migration to the Saami lands in the North. The resulting forest cutting severely depletes the lichen necessary for free reindeer grazing, and logging infrastructure disrupts the entire forest ecosystem. A tense conflict emerges between the alliance of Greenpeace and Saami activists, who in 2005 set up a "Forest Rescue Station" in the woods to stop the cutting, and logging workers, worried about losing their jobs, who create their own "anti-terror camp" in response. The situation becomes dramatic as those in the "anti-terror" camp continually assault the Greenpeace workers with noise and threatening behavior.

Main tool being the grinding stone - 'Alyawarre Country'

Reggie Camphoo Pwerl and Donald Thompson Kemarre tell us about what First Nations people in Arnhem Land NT used to carry with them when they travelled everywhere on foot – the main tool being the grinding stone. We hear about how the white men took the First Nations women as wives, and the men would watch from the hills and not come down for fear of being shot. The two elders tell us about how the First Nations people used to eat the introduced animals – horses, donkeys, and bullock – and how they developed a taste for cattle because it has more fat.

Bush Tucker in Rainy Season

Rain falls heavily, the streets of the community are quiet, and Moses sits drinking tea on the porch of a house in the community of Numbulwar, Wandu, where he is from, has been flooded in. The country is coming alive with the arrival of the rain; birds walking on lily fronds stoop for prey in the forming lakes. Moses teaches children about blackberry or yardagaga, which goes from green, then red and then to black or Dudumah, and that’s when ‘… we know it’s cooked.’ Moses holds a flower that is called woodugu which tells the custodians 'that stingrays, sharks and everything have got fat’.

Assimilation Policy - Stolen Generation - Children

A CONTINUATION OF THE STOLEN GENERATION There is a massive crisis. the child removal industry is part and parcel of this crisis in my opinion: It is perfectly accurate to equate the injustice of the stolen generations with the injustice of mass child removal today. The official reason that many thousands of stolen generation children were taken was because of "welfare" concerns - 'destitution', 'neglect', 'uncontrollable' etc. They were taken by welfare officers who genuinely believed they were "saving" the children, "for their own good" just like they are today. They saw the 'deprivations' of the camps, while brutally ignoring the humanity of the people they were dealing with, the loving kin heartbroken by removals. In NSW even in the 1920s Aboriginal parents could appeal the decision to remove their child because of 'neglect' - very few people had the resources to do this, just as a huge proportion of parents go unrepresented in court today. Children in the 20th century were taken for 'welfare' concerns within an overall policy framework of assimilation - the policy framework that continues to underlie Aboriginal affairs today. Opposing the 20th century removals and the contemporary stolen generations does not mean denying the extreme poverty and oppression facing many families with all of the issues that can go along with this - substance abuse, family violence, homelessness etc. It does not mean denying the risks posed to children in these situations. It DOES mean rejecting an approach which blames the families for these conditions and sees "rescuing" the children through forced removal and placement in foster care away from their community as some kind of "solution". It DOES mean rejecting the disgraceful racism, disrespect and arbitrary power with which Aboriginal families then and now are treated by "welfare". It DOES mean rejecting an attitude which sees Aboriginality itself as a "risk" - an attitude which is alive and kicking. It means demanding that Aboriginal families and communities are given the resources and power to deal with their own problems, rather than $1 billion annually being spent on surveillance and removal of Aboriginal kids. There is of course a hard edge to many of the 20th century removals, particularly pre-WW2, that is absent today. Pre-teen or early-teen Aboriginal girls and boys were often removed in this time and taken into forced labour "apprenticeships", we obviously don't have that now. In the 20s and 30s in particular there was a targeting of lighter skinned children for removal, something I've seen no evidence of now. But the practices of racist "welfare" agencies, which destroyed so many thousands of families in the 20th Century, are on show every single day across Australia with the forced removal of Aboriginal kids - a continuation of the stolen generations.

'Fire Hunting' benefits small-mammals

Parnngurr, the Martu community with a population of around 80, is located more than 200 miles from the nearest mining outpost. Making the most of the harsh, arid landscape's resources, the Aboriginal Australians hunt bustard, emu and kangaroo and collect a wide variety of fruits, tubers and seeds. But their most important resource is the sand goanna – a 4-foot long burrowing lizard that accounts for nearly 40 percent of all foraged calories.

Preparation of Djitama (bush yam) - Ramingining

Ramingining residents Linda, Judy and David show how djitama - a bush yam - is prepared for eating. This is very important because wrong preparation will result in poisoning. In the old days bush yams were one of the main carbohydrate sources for Yolngu people in Arnhem Land before wheat-based foodstuffs became a staple. The ideal season for gathering yams is Midawarr - a transitional season between Wet and Dry. Some yams can be eaten raw while others such as djitama require preparation. During Midawarr there is luxurious growth of vegetation in the bush and herbivorous animals are fat. Midawarr is perfect for collecting yams for 2 main reasons. 1. The ground is not too wet and thus the yams are not soggy or waterlogged, they are in their prime. 2. The foliage of yams is easily seen, which allows the vine of the yam to be traced back to the soil whereupon the tubers are dug up. Later in the year, it becomes more difficult to locate yams as their leaves and vines may be scorched by bush fires that are deliberately lit by Yolngu as part of their land management tradition. The best djitama specimens are fast growing young tubers. The foliage of the yam can tell Yolngu a lot about the condition and edibility of the underground portions. When enough tuber have been collected, the shell of mendung (an edible terrestrial snail species) is found and a small hole made in it. This is used like a vegetable peeler, but instead of peeling off the skin of djitama, it is used to produce chip-like slivers of yam. These "chips" of djitama are placed in an open-weave mewana dilly bag, which is then sewn up and placed in a flowing stream for 1 day. It is very important that the water is moving in order to leach the toxins from the djitama. After this leaching process the djitama chips are ready for eating. Djitama is rarely prepared and eaten in Arnhem Land these days. This video was produced at the request of Linda to preserve the old knowledge for the new generation of Yolngu.

Ironically, in World War II, the “Fuzzy Wuzzy’s” were iconic in the support and care of Australian troops in some of the more brutal scenes of Australian war history. Their intervention saved countless lives, and Australian children were educated to understand their bravery and contribution.

America wasn't exactly a New World, but a very old one whose inhabitants had built a vast infrastructure of cities, orchards, canals and causeways ...

In 2013 a treasure trove of Indigenous language documents from across Australia has been discovered in the New South Wales State Library. The accounts of early contact between Aboriginal people and European settlers were unearthed during a forensic search of the unpublished papers filed away in the basement of the colonial building. We wonder what happened to them and whether they were published - does anyone know?

Written out of Australia's history books for wearing a human rights badge American gold medallist, Tommie Smith and the bronze medallist John Carlos, Afro Americans from the civil rights movement, asked silver medalist Peter Norman whether he believed in human rights ... The Americans told him they would use the medal presentation to promote their cause, he told them, "I'll stand with you". Retribution by the Australian Olympic Committee was swift and brutal. Norman was reprimanded for his actions. The media in Australia ostracised him when he came home. The Australian Olympic track team refused to send him to Munich in 1972 despite Norman posting Olympic qualifying times in both the 100 and 200 metres ...

Book reveals Melbourne's illegal settlement - in British Law 2011 ABC Report

Tribal nations of Cape York came together at the Laura Dance Festival in 2015 to celebrate passing their story on to the next generation through dance.

The sixty thousand First Nations people mentioned here is the invaders count without considering the number of tribes who were hunted down and slaughtered, then piled up and burned to leave no trace, as was the custom of the settlers.

When they refer to the 'First Australians' they are inferring that the British government owned the continent an 'umpteen' hundred thousand years before they invaded in 1788. There was over 500 Nations making up the continent that they later named Australia.

'Regretable reprisals' to the invaders meant - when a white man raped the wife of a First Nations man, the husband hunted him down and speared him. The settlers and the police then rallied together and hunted down the tribe and killed all men women and children.

Ancient rock carvings on the Burrup Peninsula are among more than 1,000 sites the WA government removed or blocked from its Aboriginal heritage register in the last two-and-a-half years. In 2012 the government created a narrower definition of sacred sites. The Supreme Court has thrown out those changes, but the government now wants a single public servant to determine sacred sites.

Who We Are: Follow the lives of six First Nations people who share stories about their communities, history and cultures in contemporary Australia.

New Stolen Generation

While we speak - there are Aboriginal children being stolen form their parents across Australia. Yes there is cases of disfunction in some of our communities. The government should be setting up appropriate care projects in the communities where functional relations can be paid to care for their own in the appropriate cultural environment. Instead we get the children taken from their parents and forced into an environment that is is culturally inappropriate (genocide), and also causes the parents to slip into further depression that promotes further disfunction - and for the stolen kids, a life in institutions (later prisons) for a large percentage of them. What is happening now is that non-indigenous people and some Aboriginal people who do not fully understand the children's own particular culture - are making crucial decisions in their upbringing and pocketing the monies that would generate much needed income in the communities where they are taken from and give functional people jobs and self-esteem - they then don't have to move into larger towns for work. There is no way this situations can be looked upon as acceptable. - It is the 'NEW STOLEN GENERATION' and forced assimilation and nothing less. "But there are white kids being taken too!", some people may say. Well firstly, there is a much bigger percentage of Aboriginal children being taken, secondly, the non-Indigenous kids are being bought up in a fairly similar cultural environment, and thirdly, if you really believe this, why are you not speaking out for the white kids who are being bought in an environment NOTakin to their inherited cultural background? It costs the government much more money in the long term for all kids black or white - and thousands of people in the industry will not speak out - then find themselves unemployed.

Let us not forget the NT Intervention which is still in place because the Labor government extended it for 10 years - 'Clarke and Dawe' satire

Bruce Pascoe begins by honouring this area's traditional owners, the Wurundjeri and Bunurong people, "who fished the harbours and rivers and grew their foods on the gentle hillsides of Melbourne." He talks about the agricultural activities of Australia's Aborigines, contesting the idea that indigenous Australians lived purely through hunting and gathering. "We found a 34,000-year-old grinding stone used for grinding flour. They were the world's first bakers ..." This talk took place at WAW Gathering, a weekend-long anti-festival that included talks, performances, cooking, eating and sharing ideas. The WAW Gathering was on October 4 and 5, 2014 in Melbourne, Australia. Bruce's book Dark Emu: darkemu.wordpress.com wawgathering.com.au

How Racist Are You? - Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exer...

How Racist Are You? - Jane Elliott's Blue Eyes/Brown Eyes Exercise These 30 people have never met. By the days end, they may wish they never had. For one long day they'll be at the mercy of The Bitch, a retired American teacher. Some would say she calls herself this way for good reason. For 40 years Jane Elliott (A Class Divided) has been running an exercise that has ignited controversy around the world. She says it lays bare the hidden truth about racism in white societies. Many disagree, some vehemently. Now she's bringing her extreme methods and message to modern Britain. She's about to divide this group. Her aim: Simulate a racist apartheid style regime. Will the British people accept her regime or stand up to it? Does it reveal that we're all more racist than we'd like to admit? How Racist Are You? is a documentary investigating one of the most taboo subjects in society.

Lake Condah, Gunditjmara Country - Traditional Owner, Joseph Saunders, explains the aquiculture practiced by the Guditjmara people at Lake Condah. - Joseph Saunders: This is the focal point of the Gunditjmara Country, matter of fact this would have been like a small township in a way and the lake being like a supermarket. When the Aboriginal mission started, they weren't allowed to practise any of their culture or speak any language, any of their dances, teaching of their Dreamtime stories. With the eel basket, an old lady called Aunty Connie Hart, she used to sneak around and watch the women weave the baskets, so that's how she remembered how the baskets were done. So she ended up passing that on to other Aunties that are still living in the community and still practicing how to do the eel baskets. They'd be rocks all along here with the eel basket in the middle then your rocks on top. You would lay the fish trap in the middle with your bigger end where the bigger eels are coming through. So you'll have the bigger eels would get stuck and then the little ones would go through to the next pond. So what you're doing is you're catching the big ones and letting the littler ones go in the next pond for the next harvest, until they're big enough to catch on the next fish trap.

First Nations people and Australian servicemen reveal the devastating effects of atomic weapons testing carried out in Australia by the British during the 1950s. For the first time, members of the Army, Air Force and Navy describe former top secret aspects of those tests. With the use of rare archival film and photographs, as well as eye witness accounts, Australian Atomic Confessions chronicles the hidden history and exposes previously hidden Government cover-ups. Australian Atomic Confessions is a chilling expose of nuclear testing with a damaging legacy and has led to the death, displacement and life long health conditions and injuries to an untold number First Nations people.

Decolonise the Mind - Ghillar Michael Anderson

Ghillar Michael Anderson exposes the consequences of the insidious nature of colonial social engineering which used the 'dog tag' to divide against First Nations. People issued the 'dog tag' or 'exemption certificate' were 'exempted' from being Aboriginal and partially accepted into the colonial society on its terms, namely they were not allowed to associate with their own kind, known as the 'grassroots communities'. Many descendants of the 'dog tag' families now have political influence and form the "Black Wall' in Aboriginal Affairs, doing the work of the colonisers to assimilate grassroots. This relates to the 'Stockholm Syndrome' Bejam Noonuccal aka Denis Walker discussed. A classic example is the current 'Recognise' campaign to coerce First Nations into accepting being included in the colonial Australian Constitution which is still an Act of the British parliament. The full presentation by Ghillar is here: https://vimeo.com/147555698 More about this subject here: http://www.sovereignunion.mobi/content/constitution-recognition-campaigners-hit-brick-wall-grass-roots# What the government won't tell you about Constitutional Recognition here: http://nationalunitygovernment.org/content/government-con-constitutional-recognition

Two Brothers Walking (Trailer) Some time ago Murray George said to me, “Come to APY (Anangu Pitjantjatjara Yankunytjatjara Lands) and I will take you to my mother’s country. We want you to film it and put it on the internet so the whole world can see what our tjukurpa means for us. It’s our whole life. We are free people and it’s not for anyone to tell us what to do. This tjukarpa is for everybody to know about, and they can support us so that it is there in the future, for all the children, for everybody.” The journey for Murray started long before that. He comes from Wanampi (Rainbow Serpent) and has been doing it all his life. John Hartley has been doing it all his life too. His country is Far North Queensland (FNQ) where Rainbow Serpent is know as Yirmbal by the Kuku Yananji or Kurriyala, the more general name for carpet snake. Murray and John’s coming together was a natural and obvious one in the Aboriginal world. They are both of Rainbow Serpent or water snake dreaming and are born of the same spirit.

Treaties with Nations

Gathering of Nations 2015 - Video 8 of 11 Treaties with Nations This presentation goes into the past experiences of the NAC (National Aboriginal Conferences) Treaty research which looked at the pros and cons of Treaties in terms of how not to cede First Nations' sovereignty and maintain our sovereign independence. Ghillar retells the story of the 1983 African tour meeting with Heads of State to gain support for the Treaty process. He highlights the fact that Australia's recent report to the UN Human Rights Committee attracted condemnation from 110 Countries, more than half of the UN Member States, for its treatment of First Nations Peoples and refugees. So Australia is under a lot of pressure at present and it is time to take advantage of this condemnation. We have friends in the UN.

Gathering of Nations 2015 - Video 7 of 11 Spirit that connects us to country Our time is to move forward and so that First Nations Law has its proper place in this Country once again. It is in fact only the courts that are keeping the colonial regime in power. Senior Law woman Napanungka Nellie Patterson and Tjilpi Murray George come in with support. Tjilpi Murray George emphasises how we have to come forward with the One Voice of the Dreaming for everybody and talk with government 'nice way' saying this is the way we want to go because the government tries to cover up Aboriginal Law, Anangu law all the time. The presentation by Ghillar Michael Anderson then dealt with the excessive remove of children from families and country. He explains how Australia's place in the UN is only based on its signing the Treaty of Versailles and acceptance of the UN Charter. There is no date when Australia became independent from Britain. He is emphatic that Aboriginal people need to know their rights properly because they have no other ammunition to fight back with. Ghillar also unravels the importance of the Biodiversity Convention in protecting Country from mining and development etc. Bejam Nonuccal, Denis Walker, empathised that 'oldest in time is best at law' and Australia is still a colony of Great Britain as defined in the Australian Constitution. Therefore how can it be an independent Nation State in the UN? He suggests outlawing Australia from the UN.

She accuses governments of killing the people and stealing everything and making her people 'poor people' when they should be 'really really rich'. Napanungka Nellie Patterson says 'No' to mining the land for minerals and to the APY Executive Council's control over APY lands 'wrong story talking'.

Bejam also creates a distinction between the Crown's police who 'enforce Crown law on you and genocide you' and blakfella police in the true sense of 'those who know the Law enough to create the peace in Country'.

He very clearly articulates the internationally accepted process for assertion of sovereignty by Nations and Peoples subjugated by a foreign power. He also expands on the need for the Australian Commonwealth government to begin the process of decolonisation. Australia was criticised by 110 UN Member States in the November 2015 Human Rights Committee meeting in Geneva for its treatment of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples and also its treatment of refugees. Australia is also listed on the UN list of countries that need to decolonise.

Freedom and security is a right of all Peoples on the planet. The Sovereignty Movement led by the Sovereign Union of Aboriginal Nations and Peoples in Australia is very different and must not be confused with the so-called Freeman movement of sovereign citizens.

GATHERING of NATIONS, Canberra (21 & 22 Nov 2015)

'I live with it every day 'cause the scars are on my face.'

'I live with it every day 'cause the scars are on my face.' Marlene Tighe bears the horrific scars of domestic violence after a brutal attack two years ago. But this brave woman has decided to tell her story in the hope of sparing others the pain she's endured. Transcript LEIGH SALES, PRESENTER: This story is about another survivor who, despite having many reasons to stay out of the spotlight, has come forward to tell her shocking experience of domestic violence. Marlene Tighe was encouraged to speak out after we recently brought you a story about an Indigenous woman who'd suffered brain damage at the hands of her partner. That story prompted an extraordinary response three months ago because it showed the life-long impact of family violence and it spurred one group of women to take action. Tracy Bowden reports, and a warning: viewers may find some of the images in this story distressing. MARLENE TIGHE: I lost my eye. I've got about 11 plates in my face. I've lost my main nerve, so I've got partial paralysed, half of it because I can't feel. I got no more teeth. I have half a smile. I don't have a full smile. Yeah. (Crying) TRACY BOWDEN, REPORTER: Marlene Tighe used to smile a lot. She was happy to be back in the community she grew up in on the New South Wales South Coast. MARLENE TIGHE: Where I live, we're surrounded by the lake and it's beautiful. We've got Mother Mountain right there. TRACY BOWDEN: It was here that she reconnected with an old flame. Within months, the relationship turned violent. Can you explain why you didn't leave the first time he hit you? MARLENE TIGHE: The first time I didn't leave because I just didn't understand it. Like, I've never - I just thought he didn't really mean it. Yeah. TRACY BOWDEN: After two years, she'd had enough. MARLENE TIGHE: I told him to pack his stuff, put it in the ute and go. I didn't want him around no more. And he just walked over and seen the hammer sitting on the chair and he just picked it up and hit me with it. ... My cousin, when he came out and seen me at the front, at the front yard, he just heard me gurgling, like, he sounded like he heard me saying, "Help." And then when he looked, he seen my eye hanging out. He just freaked out and ran to get help. GERALDINE THOMAS: I just screamed and I just couldn't recognise her and I just had to go and sit alongside her and just cuddle her and, yeah, blood was all over her face, all in her head. I couldn't even see anything and I was just covered in blood, my clothes were just saturated in blood and her hair. It was all over her, all over me. TRACY BOWDEN: Marlene was in hospital for weeks and endured a series of operations as doctors did what they could to repair her face. MARLENE TIGHE: I live with it every day because the scars that's on my face, I can't hide my scars like everyone else can. LINDA BURNEY, NSW SHADOW MINISTER FOR ABORIGINAL AFFAIRS: We have a situation that is beyond a crisis in the Aboriginal community to the point of being a disaster. ANNIE VANDERWYK, RED CROSS ABORIGINAL STRATEGY: We've got to do something about this. We've got to stand up. We've got to tell our stories. We've actually got to stand up for ourselves and have a voice. TRACY BOWDEN: These women found their voice at this three-day summit called To Tackle Domestic Violence. LINDA BURNEY: We know that the hospitalisation rates for Aboriginal people are higher - 18 per cent compared to five per cent. ... One of the things that I fear that's happened is that the statistics have just become statistics and underneath that are really, really important stories and this gathering is about those stories. ANNIE VANDERWYK: This is Marlene's first time talking about her life and her incident and her ongoing struggle. I am so privileged to have her here. We are so privileged to have her here. MARLENE TIGHE: Hello, everybody. ... I wanted to leave the relationship and when I wanted to leave, he didn't like it and so he turned around and picked up the hammer and hit me in the face. TRACY BOWDEN: Marlene found the courage to speak out after the story of another Indigenous woman aired on 7.30 three months ago. WOMAN (August): He was kicking me in the head. I had a big cut - gash down my head and my face was busted all up on this side (touches right side of face). ... We see a lot of our women ... WOMAN II: It's the first place that the man'll attack is the face, is the head. WOMAN: This here (places hand in front of face). ANNIE VANDERWYK: After the story, I was just stunned. I had to sit and think. Then my phone started to ring and women, friends of mine all over NSW were absolutely enraged that this is - you know, that they know they've got sisters, aunties, you know, mums who have the same trauma, brain trauma from domestic violence situations. TRACY BOWDEN: Community worker Annie Vanderwyk decided to bring women together to look for answers. ANNIE VANDERWYK: So we decided that, OK, we needed to have a voice, and to have a voice, we need a platform and we need to be able to gather together and stand up. TRACY BOWDEN: The man who brutally assaulted Marlene is in jail. He could be out within seven years. Marlene will live with the consequences for much longer. MARLENE TIGHE: This is a life sentence, what I've got. KRISHNA TUMULURI, WESTMEAD HOSPITAL: Unfortunately, given her significant globe rupture, we actually had to remove her eye, so Marlene is now blind in that left eye. TRACY BOWDEN: But she's not defeated. Marlene Tighe wants to make a difference. MARLENE TIGHE: The women need to understand that there's more out there, there's life after DV, there's life after domestic violence. This is the person I've always wanted to be, like to have a voice and try and do something and help my people and maybe because of what's happened, this is the way I can get my voice out. LEIGH SALES: Tracy Bowden reporting.

First Nation peoples fishing rights in NSW

First Nation peoples fishing rights in NSW Mega ships from Foreign countries are given permission to take millions of tons of fish off the shores of this continent while First Nations people are a worry to the government because they want to be self-sufficient. The people of the Yuin nation and the fish were connected long before anyone needed a fishing licence.

Plastic Fantastic 3D Printing - GIVING THE KIDS INCENTIVE TO GO TO SCHOOL A remote Indigenous community is using 3D printing to turn its plastic waste into sunglasses, phone cases and toys, as part of an initiative to encourage school attendance. The flagship program on Milingimbi — an island off Arnhem Land about 440 kilometres east of Darwin — turns trash to treasure using sophisticated computer programs. Arnhem Land Progress Association (ALPA) project coordinator Lisa Somerville came up with the initiative and implemented it this year in Milingimbi. "We wanted to create an incentive for kids who go to school 100 per cent of the time and build on that," Ms Somerville said. She has been working with the Yolngu community to teach people about what types of water and soft drink bottles, and other plastic containers, could be recycled.

2 of 3 Police intercept Sovereign Women at *Springwood in the Blue Mountains on their way to Canberra *(incorrectly stated earlier to be in Sydney)

SOVEREIGN WOMEN & SYDNEY POLICE Last night a group of women from across the country were travelling by bus to Canberra for the 2015 'Gathering of Nations', and were pulled over in Springwood, Blue Mountains by the Police for driving in an 'unregistered' vehicle. The women were pulled up and questioned by police and told them they didn't need registration because they were sovereign peoples. They were released after questioning and they proceeded to Canberra. This footage was sent from the Test Embassy in Canberra. The women included Jingki of Gondwana Ancient Sacred Sites, Ngombal Family Language Waadeeabul Booroo (Great Northern Lands) - Sunset Dreaming, Boorrdoo of Dharug Family Language - Dharugal - Sunrise Dreaming, Dinnawhan of Gumilaroi Family Language - Gumilaroi *(incorrectly stated earlier to be in Sydney)

Watch Muhammad Ali's Perfect Response To 'Not All White People Are Racist' -- In 1971 So often reaction to people of color who call out racism, be it police brutality or job discrimination, is the "not all white people" argument. Like "not all men," this defense is used to derail conversations about racism by reminding people of color that some white people are "good," and that not all white people are actually racist. It's a frustrating argument because it completely dismisses the lived experiences of people of color, and oversimplifies how racism actually affects us. In a clip from a 1971 interview on the British chat show Parkinson (above) that's now gone viral on Tumblr, boxing icon Muhammad Ali perfectly explains why the existence of some "good" white people isn't always enough: There are many white people who mean right and in their hearts wanna do right. If 10,000 snakes were coming down that aisle now, and I had a door that I could shut, and in that 10,000, 1,000 meant right, 1,000 rattlesnakes didn't want to bite me, I knew they were good... Should I let all these rattlesnakes come down, hoping that that thousand get together and form a shield? Or should I just close the door and stay safe? Allies are obviously appreciated and vital to stopping racial injustice, but Ali's words are still a pretty powerful reminder of the reality of being black. It's pretty amazing, if unfortunate, that over 40 years later his words still resonate.

NOW SHOWING IN PERTH Putuparri And The Rainmakers takes audiences on a rare and emotional journey to meet the traditional rainmakers of Australia's Great Sandy Desert. Over a decade in the making, the film is an extraordinary eyewitness account of the living traditions of Putuparri’s people. Against the backdrop of Australia's tangled colonial and Indigenous history, Putuparri and the Rainmakers explores one man's struggle to fulfil his destiny. Tom "Putuparri" Lawford is a man caught between two worlds: his past and present in modern society, where he battles with alcoholism and domestic violence; and his future as a leader of his people, reconnecting with his ancestral lands, learning about his traditional culture and shouldering his responsibility to pass this knowledge on to the next generation. Director Nicole Ma spent more than a decade documenting Putuparri's journey, travelling with him and his family on numerous occasions to Kurtal, in the Kimberley's Great Sandy Desert region – traditionally a site of great significance as a place where people ritually make rain – as they fight for their native title claim over the area. Set against the backdrop of this long fight for ownership of traditional lands, the MIFF Premiere Fund-supported Putuparri and the Rainmakers is an emotional, visually breathtaking story of love, hope and the survival of Aboriginal law and culture against all odds.

It is highly likely that the Handback of Uluru in 1985 would have never happened unless Anangu were prepared to lease Uluru back to the Commonwealth government! - During the 30th Anniversary of the Handback of Uluru to its true owners Commonwealth Minister for Aboriginal Affairs, Nigel Scullion, makes profound 'Admissions Against Interest', which are the highest level of evidence in a legal matter. Within minutes of the Handback in 1985, Anangu were coerced into leasing Uluru back to the Commonwealth as a National Park under supposed Joint Management. Anangu have never received proper benefit from the National Park but now have about 300 000 visitors a year to Uluru, many of whom climb Uluru against the expressed wishes of Anangu, who and no longer able to hold the majority of ceremonies at the proper places, but hold them at the Mutitjulu community instead. Admission Against Interest is defined as an admission of the truth of a fact, especially by the parties to a lawsuit, when a statement obviously would do that person harm, be embarrassing, or be against his/her personal or business interest.

Anyone who has ever lived in a remote Aboriginal community understands the importance of hand signs. These are meant not only for the hearing impaired, but are a bedrock of everyday communication. For many generations they have served as an effective means of communicating detailed messages over long distances throughout Aboriginal Australia. While many visitors quickly learn the standard “what now?” sign, it is easy to miss the dozens of diverse hand signals being subtly exchanged in conversation. As in all languages, some elements are traditional and others are recent innovations. Over two shoots just outside of the remote community of Wirrimanu (Balgo) in WA's Great Sandy Desert, five women elders from the Kapululangu Women's Law and Culture Centre explain over 40 hand signs and translate them into Kukatja. As you can see, hand signs are not only a way of communicating information, but also serve as full-bodied ways of expressing nuance, humor, and individual personality. These women hope to help Australians from all over the continent understand a different side of Aboriginal language in remote communities and welcome you to visit them on their Dreaming Tracks and Women's Law Camps.

Dadirri: Australian Aboriginal spiritual practice of “deep listening” for trauma release & healing When Miriam-Rose Ungunmerr-Baumann speaks of dadirri, she speaks of a form of deep, contemplative listening that is nothing less than a personal spiritual practice. This type of listening in stillness is widely known all across the Australian continent, in many language groups under many names. “When I experience dadirri, I am made whole again.” Miriam describes. “I can sit on the riverbank or walk through the trees; even if someone close to me has passed away, I can find my peace in this silent awareness. There is no need of words. A big part of dadirri is listening.” More: http://www.ultrakulture.com/2015/10/15/dadirri-australian-aboriginal-spiritual-practice-of-deep-listening-for-trauma-release-healing/

Listen to the News of our People Aboriginal man from Broome, Jimmy Chi, famous for writing the plays 'Bran Nue Dae' and 'Corrugation Road' wrote the words to the song 'Listen To The News' Jimmy said the song as written during the famous protest against oil drilling on the 'Noonkanbah' sacred site, West Kimberley, Western Australia, around 1979. "It just flowed, word for word, on to a piece of paper. And I went to sleep for the fourth verse and it just presented itself like that." He later incorporated the song in 'Bran Nue Dae'. This video clip is from the movie.

Kev Carmody 'Songman' - TRAILER Documentary | Feature DIRECTOR: Brendan Fletcher The Adelaide Film Festival is pleased to welcome filmmakers and special guests to this screening Freemasons Hall, Adelaide - Sunday 18 October 2015 2:30 PM - 4:16 PM 15+, Unless Accompanied By An Adult Songman is an intimate portrait of one of the most influential figures in Australian music today. Aboriginal musician Kev Carmody is one of Australia's most celebrated songwriters. He penned our most famous Aboriginal anthem From Little Things Big Things Grow with Paul Kelly. Nicknamed ‘Australia's Bob Dylan,' Kev was recently inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame and his music has been lauded by Paul Kelly as “one of Australia's greatest cultural treasures.” This reflective film documents Kev as he records his most innovative album yet. Kev discovered a collection of unrecorded songs written in the 1970s and 80s dating to his time working in droving camps and on factory floors. Now, in an abandoned shearing shed in Southern Queensland, is the time to record these gems once and for all. Friends and colleagues Paul Kelly, Missy Higgins and Dan Sultan shed light on Kev Carmody the man and discuss his influence on their creative lives. Film-maker Brendan Fletcher (Mad Bastards, 900 Neighbours, Oscar Wilde's The Nightingale and The Rose) has worked with Kev for many years and this film is a vibrant reflection of their creative relationship.

The Abuse of children in state care . We keep hearing the politicians exaggerating the extent of sexual abuse in remote homeland communities, however, we know that abuse in all its forms is prevalent everywhere throughout the country. During the past 227 years it is always the stolen children by governments that cop the worst of these gross abuses.

Bruce Pascoe talks about the agricultural activities of Australia's Aborigines, contesting the idea that indigenous Australians lived purely through hunting and gathering. "We found a 34,000-year-old grinding stone used for grinding flour. They were the world's first bakers..." This talk took place at WAW Gathering, a weekend-long anti-festival that included talks, performances, cooking, eating and sharing ideas. The WAW Gathering was on October 4 and 5, 2014 in Melbourne, Australia. Bruce's book Dark Emu: darkemu.wordpress.com This video by wawgathering.com.au

When species start disappearing, it usually makes sense to blame it on the arrival of humans. But in the case of Western Australia's declining small-mammal populations, the opposite may be true. The Aboriginal Martu people of Western Australia have traditionally set small fires while foraging, leaving a patchwork landscape that proves a perfect environment for bilbies, wallabies, possums and other threatened mammals.

The Biggest Estate on Earth

When they refer to the 'First Australians' they are inferring that the British government owned the continent an 'umpteen' hundred thousand years before they invaded in 1788. There was over 500 Nations making up the continent that they later named Australia.

Retired magistrate Pat O'Shane has criticised the Intervention and called on the Abbott government to put more resources into Indigenous affairs. "It's racist, in a word," she said. "It's discriminatory; it is not applied to other communities in this society." Ms O'Shane said the Howard government suspended the Racial Discrimination Act specifically to implement the policy in Indigenous communities. The justifications of above-average rates of sexual abuse were, she said, based on falsehoods. "I'm a lawyer, I've worked in the Northern Territory and I've worked in NSW. I know about those issues. They are there. But the way it was being talked up at the time of this policy...that was supposed to be a major problem. It is not a major problem." She said the Abbott government's primary focus for Indigenous communities needed to be health, housing, education and unemployment. She urged the government to take a generational approach to Indigenous affairs. SBS News - NITV News

Campaign Battle Plans - Lateline

Aboriginal groups have stepped up their campaign to stop the West Australian Government shutting up to 150 remote communities - ABC TV Lateline Transcript TONY JONES, PRESENTER: Last November people in remote Aboriginal communities got a shock warning from the West Australian Government: you might have to move. The Government announced it would stop providing services to as many as 150 remote communities, possibly forcing them to close. COLIN BARNETT, WA PREMIER (Nov. 2014): I don't think they provide viability and I don't think they provide any opportunity for employment and for people to have a good education and a good health. TONY JONES: When the Prime Minister was asked about the issue on regional radio, his answer was blunt. TONY ABBOTT, PRIME MINISTER (March 10): What we can't do is endlessly subsidise lifestyle choices if those lifestyle choices are not conducive to the kind of full participation in Australian society that everyone should have. TONY JONES: But last week, WA's Aboriginal Affairs Minister said the problem wasn't a lack of money, but making sure it's well spent. Facing a public backlash, Premier Colin Barnett began talking about the social problems facing remote communities. COLIN BARNETT (March 19): How can we ensure that boys and girls go to school? How can we ensure that they are safe? How can we reduce alcohol and drug usage? And I would be failing you as the Premier of this state if I ignore those issues. TONY JONES: Well after that, the Premier went back into Parliament and spoke about 39 cases of gonorrhoea among Aboriginal children aged between 10 and 14 in WA without naming their locations and the state's police commissioner weighed in too. KARL O'CALLAGHAN, WA POLICE COMMISSIONER (March 30): There are young girls there that are being abused on a daily basis and I as Police Commissioner cannot provide the level of service that you would expect in those communities. It is simply not practical. TONY JONES: So people in remote communities are being left to wonder whether they'll be the ones who have to move and they're fighting hard now to survive. Ginny Stein went to the Kimberley in the state's Far North to film this report. GINNY STEIN, REPORTER: Out here, good news travels fast, but bad news moves even faster. WANGKATJUNGKA RESIDENT: She's a special person. She is always on Facebook, texting everybody. GINNY STEIN: For the past few months, since the Government announced the closure of 150 remote Aboriginal communities, the people of Wangkatjungka have been kicking up a social media storm. LAYANGALI BIEUNDURRY, WANGKATJUNGKA RESIDENT: We knew that all our family were on Facebook, so what we did, we just set the page up and other communities started to jump on the Facebook and started realising what the Government gonna do to us. NELSON BIEUNDURRY, WANGKATJUNGKA RESIDENT: I wanted to go into the ears of Tony Abbott, that's where I wanted to go, and all those other government officials, because I've just been watching the news about all the tax breaks that all these big corporations are getting and he says that the taxpayer can no longer afford to fund Aboriginal people, fund their lifestyle choice. I mean, wake up! GINNY STEIN: It's from here, with the help of her family, that Layangali Bieundurry and her brother Nelson got the message going. Protests spread first locally, then nationally, and now, worldwide. Throughout the Kimberley, the threat to close more than 100 remote Aboriginal communities has raised both fear and anger. At Wangkatjungka, on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert, there is disbelief that the next wave in a long line of dispossession may be soon to hit. JACQUELINE COX, WANGKATJUNGKA RESIDENT: This place, like everything is sort of going backwards more or less, nothing's moving forward. And it's happened to, you know, past generations, it's now happening to the future generation. GINNY STEIN: Community matriarch Olive Knight is no stranger to the world stage. Her talents as a blues singer are recognised internationally. She's sung alongside Hugh Jackman on Broadway, but Wangkatjungka is home. OLIVE KNIGHT, WANGKATJUNGKA RESIDENT AND SINGER: Wangkatjungka will never, ever be a lifestyle choice. Never! It is my home where I'm deeply rooted in. I've actually grown up here all my life. My teenage years, my childhood years were spent here. GINNY STEIN: Wangkatjungka is one of the larger outstations with a permanent population of about 200. Established in 1975, its title was carved out from neighbouring Christmas Creek cattle station. NELSON BIEUNDURRY: Well the people were rounded off - rounded up and taken off their traditional lands out in the Great Sandy Desert. Most of them were put to work on the cattle station here. GINNY STEIN: It owes its existence today to federal support in the '70s and '80s for the outstation movement. STEPHEN KINNANE, NULUNGU RESEARCH INSTITUTE, UNI. OF NOTRE DAME: The reason why many leaders chose to get back on country as soon as they could, particularly in the 1970s and 1980s, was because it was much safer than being in town. It was because they could use whatever value system and whatever governance structures and education structures that they had to ensure that their children were safe. JARMASON GALOVA, WANGKATJUNGKA RESIDENT: It's kind of like a estuary from other people who passed away a thousand years ago. It's great to be out in the bush, like, for - to - for our children's future, like, they can carry it on and all those sort of thing. GINNY STEIN: In November, when the West Australian Government first announced it wanted to close communities, it blamed cuts to federal funding. Last month, Premier Barnett raised the spectre of child abuse and high rates of sexually transmitted infections to justify moves to close communities. VICKI O'DONNELL, CEO, KIMBERLEY ABORIGINAL MEDICAL SERVICE: They've certainly raised the child abuse in communities, they've certainly raised the STIs, but that's not a justifiable reason to close communities. GINNY STEIN: Is it an issue? VICKI O'DONNELL: It is an issue and I'm not saying it's not. It certainly is an issue. But that's not the reasons why he's come out and said he's closing the communities. He's come out to say he's closing the communities because he doesn't believe he has got enough to money to pay for the municipals. GINNY STEIN: Vicki O'Donnell has spent decades working in Aboriginal health in the Kimberley. She has accused the Government of using dirty tactics to justify community closures, including allegations that children are being prescribed the contraceptive Implanon. VICKI O'DONNELL: So now they're saying that it's not uncommon for 11 and 12-year-olds to be running around the Kimberley with Implanons in their arms, which was a statement that was put into The Age a couple of weeks age. That's not - that's not true. MARTY SIBOSADO, KIMBERLEY ABORIGINAL ELDER: My biggest fear is for my people. We've had a history of basically, you know, being removed off the land, you know, again with no consultation, no involvement, and I just ask in 2015: how can this happen in Australia? GINNY STEIN: At Wangkatjungka, at a time when the community is fearing for its existence, there is a mini housing boom going on. State Government housing has kept a commitment to build 15 new homes. Here, government funds the school and provides municipal services such as power and water and a medical clinic. The Government's intentions are being questioned. NELSON BIEUNDURRY: We're already thinking about what other motives the government has about building all these houses up there. Are they building all these houses down so they can shut down the outstations and get those people off and move them onto these larger communities? CLAUDE CARTER, OUTSTATION RESIDENT: The back leg looked like a kangaroo leg. GINNY STEIN: But you know it, it's definitely bilby? CLAUDE CARTER: It's a bilby this one, yeah. GINNY STEIN: Claude Carter lives about 20 kilometres away from Wangkatjungka with his extended family at one of the more vulnerable tiny outstations. CLAUDE CARTER: And mainly the main camp is just down here, if we want to have a look down there. Mainly here the tracks goes in. Once you come out, they always use a two-side track, one on the right-hand side, one on the left-hand side. And my grandson acting like a bilby. GINNY STEIN: At his home, known locally as The Block, he's built much of what's here himself by selling his art. Current government support is limited to power and water and phone and internet access. CLAUDE CARTER: I get a little built of diesel, diesel side and maybe if I want to do landscaping project, I can get a little bit of money off that one. GINNY STEIN: If the Government cuts services, he says he won't be moving. CLAUDE CARTER: I can't move. If Government want me to move, I still can't move. I got grandkids now. I'm a grandfather, from my daughter's side. And them kids call it home too. I can't really move. It's home, sweet home for my place, yeah.

Police cause ugly scene at Anzac Parade in Canberra

Extra footage from Anzac parade in Canberra 2015

VIDEO - NEW FOOTAGE: "This day is not for you." AFP prevent Fred Hooper from marching on Anzac Day, Canberra 25 April 2015 As Chairman of the Murrawarri Republic, Fred Hooper, decorated former submariner and great nephew of Harold West is prevented from marching as part of the Undeclared Frontier Wars commemoration on Anzac Day, Canberra 25 April 2015 to commemorate all Aboriginal people who died in wars, whether recognised or not. On the 100th anniversary of the Landing at Gallipoli, AFP Station Sergeant based at Civic in Canberra defines the racism that pervades Australian society by declaring, 'This day is not for you.' Fred Hooper's great uncle, Private Harold West, is the person featured in the 'Coloured Digger' poem. Over three nights Harold West, with grenades, single handedly took out Japanese machine guns on top of the Owen Stanley Ranges and made it possible for troops to cross the jungle-clad Owen Stanley ranges in central Papua Nuigini (Papua New Guinea) during the WWII. He was nominated for the Victoria Cross, but never received it. Image link: Private Harold West: - http://sovereignunion.mobi/images/2015/pt-harold-west.jpg BUT the bottom line of this issue is that First Nations people haven't ceded sovereignty, so the AFP actually don't have the right to stop them marching under any condition ... http://www.sovereignunion.mobi This issue: Previouis peaceful ANZAC Day Marches - VIDEOS: http://goo.gl/SsMgM7 Sovereign Union Media Release - Video & Images: http://goo.gl/covm2a Murrawarri Republic Media Release: http://goo.gl/cSSMFk Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Sovereign-Union/340478969357448

Footage from yesterday at the Canberra Anzac parade. Chairman of the Murrawarri Nation and Former submariner Fred Hooper was told by the police that he could not lay a wreath in remembrance of his family and all First Peoples who gave their life fighting in the Australian undeclared frontier wars. Showing clearly that it is only okay to remember the Australian fallen as long as they are not the First Peoples of this country, and that a system of apartheid is alive and well, still in Australia. According to the police they were under orders from the RSL and that the group and he was not allowed to march. The RSL need to officially explain their stance and the why are the police now working for them and assaulting ex-serviceman and preventing him from marching.

Murrumu Walubara Yidindji - Lateline 15 April 2015 This video begins with "Pearson's Constitutional Recognition" assimilation policy but us quickly followed by "Murrumu's World" - --- THE TRANSCRIPT Kerry Brewster travelled to Northern Queensland to meet an Indigenous man who's taken matters into his own hands and declared himself free of Australian laws. KERRY BREWSTER, REPORTER: On a playing field south of Cairns, I found Murrumu Walubara Yidindji, the man who has renounced Australia. You don't see Team Australia, you see Team Yidindji. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI, YIDINDJI TRIBAL MAN: Everywhere here is all Yidindji. Up to Port Douglas, down to close to Innisfail. KERRY BREWSTER: That's Murrumu's son, little Jeremy. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: What does little Jeremy know about his world? Well it's a good question because he knows that we're not part of the Crown, he knows we're not Australian citizens. ... ... This is our classroom. This is our lore. The lore never dies, it only sleeps, and Maya (phonetic spelling) Yidindji, which is Yidindji law, given to us by Gayaburra Goopi, our creator, is very much alive here today. You can hear, um, the cicadas, you can hear the creeks running. This is what life is all about. KERRY BREWSTER: It's a life far from Murrumu's old one. JEREMY GEIA: The council says it's been forced to provide its own power and that's been a costly exercise. KERRY BREWSTER: For 20 years he was Indigenous television reporter Jeremy Geia. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: It was brilliant. I enjoyed it immensely. And I have some fantastic memories. ... JEREMY GEIA: ... Well what started off as two bottles of alcohol on Palm Island has ended up here in the High Court in Canberra. KERRY BREWSTER: Jeremy Geia became the political correspondent for SBS's NITV News. JEREMY GEIA: That theme is set to continue this week in Parliament. KERRY BREWSTER: And he was the first Western journalist to interview WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange in London's Ecuadorean embassy. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: Jeremy Geia was a nice person, but it wasn't real. The 40 years or so that I was masquerading around as that person, it took a long time for the coin to drop. It came to me during the leadership spills of the Labor Party when I was at the Federal Parliament reporting for NITV News and there was a tipping point there that said that it wasn't real, it was just an act. I could have stayed in that world and done very well out of it, but something had to be done. KERRY BREWSTER: Jeremy Geia abandoned his career and headed home to North Queensland. From a house donated by a local supporter, he cut the ties, returning his passport and driver's licence and shutting his bank account. Backed by his tribal elders, he formally declared an area 1.5 times the size of Hong Kong to be Yidindji territory under control of the Sovereign Yidindji Government. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: People asked me, "Oh, it seem a bit drastic what you've done," or, you know, "You're having a midlife crisis," or things like that. Far from it. There are many people supporting us, whether it's with a bit of food here or there. They know and they understand that this is Yidindji land and that anything on it belongs to Yidindji. ... ... (Speaks Indigenous language) And welcome to our program today. That's our Yidindji prayer. ... If Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders are not constitutionally recognised, are they Australian citizens, 'cause that's a pretty decent question. TREVOR TIM, NATIONAL INDIGENOUS RADIO SERVICE: As a sovereign man, his law, the law of the land, the first law of the land, is on top of the Crown law. Murrumu understands that and Murrumu is running with that. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: We've got some more talking to do in relation to Yidindji and its standing around the globe. JEREMY, SON: That was boring. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: Thank you! ... ... This is the Yidindji number plates. These were created and authorised through the Sovereign Yidindji Government. ... ... I'm not really worried about being pulled over at all, Kerry. ... ... Let's look at if I'm arrested. The leaders at the day will not be quarantined from any law in the future or action that we take against the Commonwealth of Australia, if indeed I'm interfered with. ... ... Tony Abbott or Peter Cosgrove or whoever it may be in charge, you know, this is the remedy. Come and sit down and talk with us because we're ready to do business for our territory. ... ... Got nothing against Australians. You know, some of our best friends are Australians. ... ALAN OLIVER, YIDINDJI ELDER: They didn't know who was coming. All they knew is there was all these horses and all these troopers coming and shooting them. When they cut the heads off the babies, the grandmothers, the grandfathers and everybody else, like the children, babies and that, they stuck them on a stick and then they pulled them apart. This was to ensure my granny's tribe from coming in to here. And that's the hurting part of me that really kills me because there's nothing we can do. The only real way we're going is the way that Jeremy is going and we've got to follow that track. He's doing a top job and I'm so proud of him. Thank you, my brother, too. I meant to say thank you. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: It doesn't matter if you're black or white living on Yidindji land, if you want to be part of our life, it is lifestyle choice, it is a real lifestyle choice. ... ... We have to create a place for the Yidindji Australian. And, you know what? There's about 156,000 Yidindji Australians live in Geemoy (phonetic spelling). You either got to be Yidindji or you got to be Australian. Or, there may be an opportunity to have dual citizenship. ... ... It's a hard life, but at the end of the day it's about feeling what is the truth, living the truth. KERRY BREWSTER: Are you going to renounce your citizenship of Australia? BEATRICE DODD PRYOR, YIDINDJI WOMAN: Absolutely, absolutely, yeah. I'm very keen on that. ... It means everything to me. It connects with my identity. You know, my culture, my land, my people. KERRY BREWSTER: But Queensland's education system isn't about to recognise Yidindji identification. Without an Australian birth certificate, Murrumu has been unable to enrol little Jeremy into kindergarten. MURRUMU WALUBARA YIDINDJI: We've approached a number of schools. We've also offered to provide a tribal birth certificate, but they've said they can't accept that. KERRY BREWSTER: Murrumu is happy to do the teaching.

Rosalie Kunoth Monks & Tom Calma debate Constitutional Recognition on ABC Lateline last night THE TRANSCRIPT TONY JONES, PRESENTER: Joining us now from Alice Springs is Rosalie Kunoth-Monks, a central Australian Indigenous elder who as a young woman played a starring role in the movie Jedda. She's leader of the First Nations movement, which wants sovereignty and self-determination for Indigenous people. And in the studio here with me is Tom Calma. He's co-chair of Reconciliation Australia and a member of the Recognise organisation. He wants a referendum to recognise Indigenous Australians in the Constitution sooner rather than later. Thanks to both of you for being here. Now Rosalie, what do you think of what Murrumu has done up in Northern Queensland? ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS, ARRERNTE ANMATYERRE ELDER: I am absolutely thrilled that he has found truth in his journey. The truth is that we are sovereign people of this country, therefore we do not need to sought or to look for approval by anyone. We have a continuing history and that has never, ever been ceded. TONY JONES: Now Rosalie, do you think there'll be groups in the Northern Territory who will watch that and think that's a good idea, to completely secede from Australia? ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS: I believe there will be a mixture, but I do also believe there is a lack of concentration or comprehension of people in the Northern Territory because we are tribal lands in this part of our country. Tribal lands with the original constitution - if we must use that word - in place, with a different language and also probably still living in a fool's paradise, not realising that we are being assimilated to such an extent that we don't even know where we belong anymore. TONY JONES: Tom Calma, let me bring you in, and on the Murrumu thing, I don't imagine that's something you'd encourage. TOM CALMA, CO-CHAIR, RECONCILIATION AUSTRALIA: Well, look, I think it's important for everybody to create their own identity. This is why we're so fortunate in Australia that we're able to express who we are and not have any fear of reprisal from government and so forth. So, you know, if Murrumu and others want to go down that track of identifying as separate sovereign nations, so be it, that's their right to do that. TONY JONES: I've got to ask you the obvious question: what does he do if he needs to go to hospital or something? Does he go across the border into Australia and does he still get access to Medicare? TOM CALMA: Well I'm not sure. TONY JONES: We saw the problems with his son there, getting into school. TOM CALMA: Well I think that - from what he's saying, if he can't get into school, his chances of getting Medicare are going to be limited. But, you know, he could express it through different ways of traditional medicine and we have some very strong and robust traditional medicines going on in Australia through the Nungkaris, who operate very successfully and they're Indigenous healers. TONY JONES: Now Tom, this issue of sovereignty, Aboriginal sovereignty, has been around for a very long time now. Does it in any way threaten, in your opinion, the push for a constitutional referendum? TOM CALMA: No, not at all. And I think what's very important is that you look at Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander people around the nation, some are very secure because they know their identity, where they come from, they have the relationship with the land, culture, language and so forth. Others have been taken away and so they don't have that relationship, but they know the country that they come from and they may feel that they're much better accepted within their own tribal groups or community groups than they are in the wider society. So they'll express themselves like that. But in relation to the general movement to have a look at constitutional reform and the recognition of Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander people, these processes can co-exist and, you know, and I think ... TONY JONES: You mean sovereignty, a treaty and the whole process and the referendum as well? Constitutional reform as well? TOM CALMA: Yeah and constitutional reform - yeah, yeah, yeah. TONY JONES: We'll just see if that satisfies Rosalie Kunoth-Monks. What do you think about the - this push for recognition in the Constitution? Because I've heard you say you don't want to be swallowed up into the Constitution. ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS: That may have been my words. The fact remains, the truth is we do not belong in the foreign constitution which is only over, you know, a short, very short period. It's only over 230 or so years. I think what we are seeking is acknowledgment of the fact this country is not terra nullius, the fact that there is an alternative culture that needs to be recognised by Australian settlers. I realise that the settlers that were unleashed on us with the First Fleets were also abused and brutalised people. Our short history in that period of time has not enhanced any good feelings. And if you stop and think of the inclusiveness of Aboriginal people, the original people of this country, they are so inclusive. And the other thing is that their care for each other in the traditional way is holistic. And this is what I've just come out of hearing the old songs being sung and young girls dancing and reasserting and reclaiming their land and their identity, which they've never lost, and I think I said right at the beginning: maybe we are living in a fool's paradise that we still have our languages, that we still have a relationship with each other, real in-depth relationship, a real humanity towards each other. This is lacking when we come into the outskirts of townships and there is a feeling of conflict. That needs to be addressed by a truth and justice journey for us all. All people of this country to look at the truth and to seek justice. TONY JONES: Rosalie - sorry. ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS: And we only can do that from a place of equality. We certainly are not equal in this country because everything that is handed down to us, whether it's through the policies from the Federal Government, is towards assimilation. We do not want to be assimilated for the cost of losing our identity. This is what we're saying and I don't think that is too deep for anyone to understand. TONY JONES: OK, let's hear Tom on that. I don't imagine you'd disagree in many respects to what Rosalie is saying. ... TOM CALMA: No, not at all. TONY JONES: But there is around the group that she's talking about, a profound opposition to the constitutional recognition or even the notion that it's necessary. This fear of assimilation, is that one that you share? TOM CALMA: Well, yeah, it's been a long-term government policy to try and assimilate Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander people into the mainstream culture. It's been successful in some regards, many people, and let's not forget that we've got about 700,000 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia. Many of those, the majority, live in urban and regional townships who have been disassociated with their land in part; some are still able to associate with their land and culture. But many aren't and so there is a - already a movement. The real issue, I think, here is that where people want to be able to express their relationship to land and culture, they should be able to do that. If they do that by the way of sovereignty and whatever sovereignty may mean to them, because we're all sovereign people in our own right. We don't need government to give us any sort of relationship. TONY JONES: Tom, this is a referendum coming up, or we hope it will be coming up. We're not 100 per cent sure ... TOM CALMA: Make sure (inaudible). TONY JONES: ... whether they will or how long it might take. But the constitutional lawyer George Williams, we've spoken to him. He believes constitutional recognition is a possible first step towards a treaty. TOM CALMA: Exactly. That was next step. TONY JONES: Do you agree with that? TOM CALMA: I agree totally. And Megan Davis, Larissa Behrendt and co. also said very similar things. And we've seen that, if we look at - now Rosalie mentioned about, you know, terra nullius, and that was the doctrine that existed in Australia when the First Fleeters first came and that basically means that there were no people in Australia. But we know that Aboriginal Torres Strait Islander people have been here for 60,000-plus years. That was not overturned until 1992 with the Mabo decision. TONY JONES: Yeah. But Tom, let me just put - let me put to Rosalie the point you just made. This constitutional lawyer, Rosalie, says that if you have constitutional recognition, a treaty will be easier and Tom is saying it's one of the next steps. Do you think - is that an argument for actually getting on board with the constitutional recognition process? ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS: I wish I could say yes, Tom, but I can't. TOM CALMA: Yeah. Yeah. ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS: I have not seen anything to trust the assimilationist progress, which has somehow speeded up. I have not seen anything whereby I can say, "Yes, I will forget about my ancestral 60,000 years-or-more-old constitution of this country." Although unwritten, it is there. And it continues in the songs. It continues in our relationship with the physical side of the lands from which we began yonks ago. I cannot bring myself to say, "Yes, I will trust in the government of today." No, I cannot. And I am quite sure that there may be a different journey for those people, which as you say, Tom, has the right to take their choice and to live in the mainstream, as we call it. But for those people that are tribal and properly do not understand the journey on which we've embarked. TONY JONES: Rosalie - sorry, Rosalie, I'm sorry ... ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS: Those are the people with whom I am still here. TOM CALMA: Yes. TONY JONES: We're very glad you're still there and I just want to throw - 'cause we're running out of time, I'm afraid. I want to throw the last word to Tom and it's a big point here. You know that Tony Abbott, who says he's the Indigenous Prime Minister said he'll sweat blood for this. Now, he's actually ... ROSALIE KUNOTH-MONKS: Oh, God. TONY JONES: He's promised that there will actually be a meeting between political leaders and Indigenous leaders. Have you any idea when that will happen? TOM CALMA: No idea, but we should also indicate that the Opposition is party to this agreement as well. Reconciliation Australia was working with the Prime Minister's office to facilitate this meeting. TONY JONES: But you haven't got a timetable. TOM CALMA: We don't have a time - it's still with the Prime Minister's office. I think - and this will maybe appease some of the concerns that Rosalie and others have. We have to see the good will expressed by the Prime Minister and the Parliament to be able to give a little ground. We've got to make sure that the parliamentary committee that Ken Wyatt leads comes out with some set of wordings that's going to go in the referendum. They're very important. The membership - the meeting of the leadership is going to be important and having a cross-section of people. But we shouldn't forget always that as Aboriginal people, we have a right to sovereignty, we have a right to be able to express to get a treaty, but that doesn't mean that it has to be, you know, taking over from any rights that the general population have. And I want to finish by saying that I think we have seen a maturing of Australian society. We've got, so far, you mentioned, 250,000 people on board. We've got about 80 per cent of people willing and happy to support a referendum. We've got about six per cent of the Aboriginal population indicating that they're opposed because they'd prefer sovereignty and a treaty. We say they can co-exist, as can other proposals, as put by Noel Pearson recently, of a declaration aspirational document. That can co-exist. But the main game is to get the constitutional recognition, because once it's entrenched in the Constitution, it then takes another referendum to change it. If it's in legislation or it's good will, you know, that's, you know, changed by the whim of the parliament of the day. TONY JONES: OK, Tom, we're out of time, I'm afraid, and Rosalie Kunoth-Monks, thanks very much. We're out of time. We'll have to leave it there. Thanks to both of you. TOM CALMA: Yep.

Grandmothers present 'end genocide' demand to Senator Rachel Siewert - THE LETTER - The Grandmothers against Removals - To whom it may concern: URGENT DEMAND to Repeal sections 268.121 – 268.122 of the International Criminal Court (Consequential Amendments) Act 2002 as a remedy to the fact that Australia has NO effective law against Genocide Australia has still not fully imported the Genocide Convention into domestic law. Parts of the Genocide Convention were imported into domestic law by way of the International Criminal Court (Consequential Amendments) Act 2002, but only the Attorney-General can begin a genocide case and if he/she refuses there is no right of appeal and no reasons need to be given. [268.121 – 268.122]. This is contrary to the intent of the long-standing Genocide Convention, which Australia was the third country to sign. As soon has Australia has fully imported the 1948 Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide, the impunity with which Aboriginal children are being kidnapped (aka 'removed') will cease because each officer carrying out these crimes will be personally accountable to the Genocide Convention. International Criminal Court (Consequential Amendments) Act 2002, 268.121 Bringing proceedings under this Division (1) Proceedings for an offence under this Division must not be commenced without the Attorney‑General’s written consent. (2) An offence against this Division may only be prosecuted in the name of the Attorney‑General. (3) However, a person may be arrested, charged, remanded in custody, or released on bail, in connection with an offence under this Division before the necessary consent has been given. 268.122 Attorney‑General’s decisions in relation to consents to be final (1) Subject to any jurisdiction of the High Court under the Constitution, a decision by the Attorney‑General to give, or to refuse to give, a consent under section 268.121: (a) is final; and (b) must not be challenged, appealed against, reviewed, quashed or called in question; and (c) is not subject to prohibition, mandamus, injunction, declaration or certiorari. (2) The reference in subsection (1) to a decision includes a reference to the following: (a) a decision to vary, suspend, cancel or revoke a consent that has been given; (b) a decision to impose a condition or restriction in connection with the giving of, or a refusal to give, a consent or to remove a condition or restriction so imposed; (c) a decision to do anything preparatory to the making of a decision to give, or to refuse to give, a consent or preparatory to the making of a decision referred to in paragraph (a) or (b), including a decision for the taking of evidence or the holding of an inquiry or investigation; (d) a decision doing or refusing to do anything else in connection with a decision to give, or to refuse to give, a consent or a decision referred to in paragraph (a), (b) or (c); (e) a failure or refusal to make a decision whether or not to give a consent or a decision referred to in a paragraph (a), (b), (c) or (d). Extract from: Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of Genocide, Article II: In the present Convention, genocide means any of the following acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such: (a) Killing members of the group; (b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group; (c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its physical destruction in whole or in part; (d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group; (e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group. Article III: The following acts shall be punishable: (a) Genocide; (b) Conspiracy to commit genocide; (c) Direct and public incitement to commit genocide; (d) Attempt to commit genocide; (e) Complicity in genocide.
