$800 million spent on the CONstitutional reforms “Recognise” campaign.

Meanwhile the Referendum (Machinery Provisions) Act 1984 section 11(4) stipulates that the government can ONLY spend public funds on printing 2000 word pamplets for mass mail out to the people. Go figure?

On 2 June 2015, the Aboriginal Medical Service of Western Sydney (AMSWS) broke the news on the ABC Latelineprogram that a key performance indicator of funding through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) was demonstrable support for Recognise.

A month later comes the news that all Federal funding is ceasing and the AMSWS will be forced to close its doors to the 11,000 patients to whom it provides healthcare.

Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Here is a quick summary of the cuts we know about so far:
* $42 million cut from National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service (ATSILS);
* Cut to funding for Vibe Australia, the most recognised platform of empowerment for Indigenous Australians;
* $160 million cut from Indigenous health programs;
* $3.5 million cut to the Torres Strait Regional Authority;
* $15 million earmarked for the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples has been cancelled;
* $9.5 million cut to Indigenous language support.

On Friday, May 20, 2016 — ABC News 24 & iveiw gave broadcast to the Indigenous Recognition in the Constitution: Discussion Panel at the Darwin Entertainment Centre as part of the Garrmalang Festival.

It was revealed on this broadcast that $800 million was spent over 3 years on the Government Recognise campaign.

The Referendum Council admitted that once their report goes to parliamentary hands that they lose control over the wording and the Government will have all the control.

The Panel ignored First Nations people in the audience clearly indicating they do not want to be recognised.

Comment – Recognise has been set up by Twiggy Forrest and is supported by mining companies and Transfield..who runs the jails and concentration camps for LNP. It is a total scam and the end result will be a huge loss for Aboriginal people. One of the changes to the act will allow the government to make separate laws for Aboriginal people. Generally that is known as apartheid. Do not be sucked into this…most aboriginal people are against it.

First Nations senate candidate exposes the con in Constitutional – https://www.greenleft.org.au/node/61781

Why is the government pushing for Constitutional Reform?

The government can say that because the First Nations people voted for the changes in the referendum they have specifically voted to be controlled by the government.
The government wants more control over First Nations people, especially those living on ‘valuable mining land’

The government wants to extend its power to further dislocate and marginalise First Nations people who have not already assimilated

The invaders of these lands and the following governments have been aggressively trying to ‘breed out’ and/or assimilate First Nations people since the invasion in 1788, when they released there were more Aboriginal people on the continent than they first thought and they were people with established societies.

They have needed to eradicate the people to justify their terra nullius claim (unoccupied and free to colonise).
But how can they get away with it?

They have spent many millions dollars on the ‘Recognise’ campaign through advertising and other promotions, from the popular sports through to the arts.

They have employed well known assimilated Aboriginal ‘Leaders’ to actively promote their campaign and have added a further $15m in the 2016 Budget to press the ‘Yes’ vote in communities around the continent.

With over $100m already spent on the ‘Yes’ vote they have never allocated any money on people or organisations to put up a case for the ‘No’ vote or to explain the pitfalls.

The commercial channels (Fox, 7, 9, 10 groups of channels) are all funded and operated by big business interests and collect advertising revenue from ‘R’ Campaign, and are also regulated by the government.

The ABC and SBS (NITV) is funded and being bullied by the government.
Former PM Tony Abbott inferred that all Aboriginal government funded organisations must support ‘Recognise’ or their funding may be compromised. (blackmail)
There has been a media blackout on all mainstream media outlets to describe what rights Aboriginal people will get from Constitution Recognition or the disadvantages – this goes against the ‘democratic’ assumption of the Australian government system.
Who is the ‘Expert Panel’ on Constitutional ‘Reform’ who advise the government?

They are (un-elected) people especially selected and funded by the government to promote Constitutional Reform.

See: Proposed Constitutional Reforms are treasonous and Fraudulent
There were 40 government funded people at the June 2015 ‘Constitution Recognition’ meeting at Kirribilli (link is external) with the then PM and Leader of the Opposition.

New Referendum Council

On 7th December, 2015 the government appointed a new council to promote Constitutional Reform to work independently to the ‘Expert Council’ , including some of the front line people from the ‘Expert Panel’, which was named ‘The Referendum Council’. This council includes more non-Indigenous people than the ‘Expert Panel’. The non-Indigenous members are leading right-wing Lawyers and media experts..

The Referendum Council members list: Professor Patrick Dodson (co-chair) Resigned), Mark Leibler AC (co-chair), Stan Grant (tipped to become co-chair replacement), Pat Anderson AO, Professor Megan Davis, Andrew Demetriou, Murray Gleeson AC QC, Kristina Keneally, Mick Gooda, Tanya Hosch, Jane McAloon, Michael Rose, Natasha Stott Despoja AM, Noel Pearson, Amanda Vanstone, Dalassa Yorkston, Dr Galarrwuy Yunupingu AM.

 

Please note: None of these people were voted for or appointed as spokespersons by the Aboriginal community.

“On every occasion section 51 has been used, it’s been to harm the interests of Aboriginal people. It’s section 51 which was tested in the Hindmarsh Islands affair, and which affirmed the power of parliament to suspend the Racial Discrimination Act to specifically disadvantage Aboriginal people. This was done in Hindmarsh, in Wik, and in the introduction of the NT Intervention.” Chris Graham

Why Should I Oppose Recognition?

Where did the idea of Constitutional Recognition for First Nations peoples come from?

In 1965 Prime Minister Robert Menzies noted in parliament that Aboriginal people are not Australian citizens and the government cannot legally control them. See the Hansard record of 1 April 1965.
In 2007, Prime Minister John Howard, announced that if he was re-elected, he will put a referendum to the Australian people to formally recognise Indigenous Australians in the Constitution. ABC Report (link is external) 11 October 2007
John Howard’s statement was made during the same period of government when he was opposing the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, opposing a Treaty and following the introduction of the Northern Territory Intervention and the shutting down of ATSIC.

Why is the government pushing for Constitutional Reform?

The government can say that because the First Nations people voted for the changes in the referendum they have specifically voted to be controlled by the government.
The government wants more control over First Nations people, especially those living on ‘valuable mining land’

The government wants to extend its power to further dislocate and marginalise First Nations people who have not already assimilated

The invaders of these lands and the following governments have been aggressively trying to ‘breed out’ and/or assimilate First Nations people since the invasion in 1788, when they released there were more Aboriginal people on the continent than they first thought and they were people with established societies.

Please note: None of these people were voted for or appointed as spokespersons by the Aboriginal community. Referendum Council members images (link is external)

See: An overview by Ghillar Michael Anderson and Referendum Council Announcement – PM Media Release (link is external)

Why should I oppose it?

Because the government wants to name First Nations people in the constitution so they have more power over them.
It will allow the government to discriminate on the basis of race.
It fails the test of compliance with the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples: http://www.un.org/esa/socdev/unpfii/documents/DRIPS_en.pdf (link is external)
It gives the government the power to pass legislation like the ‘Northern Territory Intervention’ against the First Nations people in all the states

‘Sovereignty was never ceded’ – this legislation will make it much harder for people to assert their sovereign rights – in other words. it will kill any chance of workable and grass roots self-determination

The vote will give non-Indigenous people the power to make the decision on ‘Recognition’ (This is because they have 97% of the vote.

The Australian CONstitution purely is used for the sole intent of maintaining power.
Professor G. Clements (an eminent UK QC and emeritus Professor in law at Cambridge). He summed up the situation thus,

“The continued usage of the Australian Constitution Act (UK) by the Australian Governments and the judiciary is a confidence trick of monstrous proportions played upon the Australian people with the intent of maintaining power. It remains an Act of the United Kingdom. After joining the League of Nations in 1919 Australia became a sovereign nation. It had no further legal power to use, alter or otherwise tamper with another nation’s legislation. Authority over the Australian Constitution Act lies not with the Australian government nor with the Australian people, it rests solely with the UK. Only they have the authority to repeal this legislation …”

A message to all “Recognise” believers

Believers: it wouldn’t hurt to sit with a Blackfulla who knows about this stuff before donning an R shirt and spruking the ideas and priorities of government.

At least do some research of your own.

 

$800 million spent on the CONstitutional reforms “Recognise” campaign.

Where did the idea of Constitutional Recognition for First Nations peoples come from?

In 1965 Prime Minister Robert Menzies noted in parliament that Aboriginal people are not Australian citizens and the government cannot legally control them.

Since when has the gov ever done anything for us? Anyways please think of how our kids mite suffer from something we were silly enough to believe.

We know the agenda is for the ‘Recognise’ campaign to coerce First Nations into accepting being included in the colonial Australian Constitution which is still an Act of the British parliament.

1967 Referendum is deceitful like the coming Referendum.

“On every occasion section 51 has been used, it’s been to harm the interests of Aboriginal people. It’s section 51 which was tested in the Hindmarsh Islands affair, and which affirmed the power of parliament to suspend the Racial Discrimination Act to specifically disadvantage Aboriginal people. This was done in Hindmarsh, in Wik, and in the introduction of the NT Intervention.” Chris Graham

Again we ask you to Please do ur own research.
On 2 June 2015, the Aboriginal Medical Service of Western Sydney (AMSWS) broke the news on the ABC Latelineprogram that a key performance indicator of funding through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) was demonstrable support for Recognise.
A month later comes the news that all Federal funding is ceasing and the AMSWS will be forced to close its doors to the 11,000 patients to whom it provides healthcare.

Coincidence? I don’t think so.

Here is a quick summary of the cuts we know about so far:
* $42 million cut from National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service (ATSILS);
* Cut to funding for Vibe Australia, the most recognised platform of empowerment for Indigenous Australians;
* $160 million cut from Indigenous health programs;
* $3.5 million cut to the Torres Strait Regional Authority;
* $15 million earmarked for the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples has been cancelled;
* $9.5 million cut to Indigenous language support.

On Friday, May 20, 2016 — ABC News 24 & iveiw gave broadcast to the Indigenous Recognition in the Constitution: Discussion Panel at the Darwin Entertainment Centre as part of the Garrmalang Festival.

It was revealed on this broadcast that $800 million was spent over 3 years on the Government Recognise campaign

 

Meanwhile the Referendum (Machinery Provisions) Act 1984 section 11(4) stipulates that the government can ONLY spend public funds on printing 2000 word pamplets for mass mail out to the people. Go figure?

Comment – Recognise has been set up by Twiggy Forrest and is supported by mining companies and Transfield..who runs the jails and concentration camps for LNP. It is a total scam and the end result will be a huge loss for Aboriginal people. One of the changes to the act will allow the government to make separate laws for Aboriginal people. Generally that is known as apartheid. Do not be sucked into this…most aboriginal people are against it.

The Australian CONstitution purely is used for the sole intent of maintaining power.
Professor G. Clements (an eminent UK QC and emeritus Professor in law at Cambridge). He summed up the situation thus,

“The continued usage of the Australian Constitution Act (UK) by the Australian Governments and the judiciary is a confidence trick of monstrous proportions played upon the Australian people with the intent of maintaining power. It remains an Act of the United Kingdom. After joining the League of Nations in 1919 Australia became a sovereign nation. It had no further legal power to use, alter or otherwise tamper with another nation’s legislation. Authority over the Australian Constitution Act lies not with the Australian government nor with the Australian people, it rests solely with the UK. Only they have the authority to repeal this legislation …”

1967 Referendum is deceitful like the coming Referendum

$800 million spent on the CONstitutional reforms “Recognise” campaign.

ALL CONTRACTS POST 1788 ARE DEEMED NULL IN VOID AS THERE HAS BEEN NO FREE, INFORMED OR PRIOR CONSENT GIVEN. LEGAL CONTRACTS ARE WRITTEN IN CODE AND WE DON’T READ CODE!!!!

The Australian CONstitution purely is used for the sole intent of maintaining power.
Professor G. Clements (an eminent UK QC and emeritus Professor in law at Cambridge). He summed up the situation thus,

“The continued usage of the Australian Constitution Act (UK) by the Australian Governments and the judiciary is a confidence trick of monstrous proportions played upon the Australian people with the intent of maintaining power.

The Con of Constitutional Reform continues in the upcoming referendum – No-one knows what they are voting for, because the government hasn’t even finalised the wording of the document yet – people will get the name ‘Aboriginal’ or ‘Indigenous’ in the preamble of the constitution, but no-one knows what else?

A Brisbane demonstration in support of the 1967 referendum. (The Australian)

In March 2009 The Australian Government was “found guilty by a United Nations Body of practicing racial discrimination against its own citizens.” (http://www.eniar.org/humanrights.html
The capacity for the Australian Government to conduct the racial discrimination act in question was made possible by the ‘Yes’ vote in the 1967 referendum in which all Australians were deceived.

1967 Referendum
In 1967 Good will Australian Citizens thought they were voting ‘Yes’ for ‘Aborigines’ for the right to vote. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people already had the right to vote after Legislative changes in 1962.
Quote:
* “The 1967 referendum did not give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples the right to vote. This right had been legislated for Commonwealth elections in 1962, with the last State to provide Indigenous enfranchisement being Queensland in 1965.” (The 1967 referendum – Fact sheet 150 : National Archives of Australia)

What really was the 1967 Referendum?
* Inclusion of ‘Aborigines’ in the Census
* Commonwealth Government could make independent laws for Aboriginal People (see http://www.creativespirits.info/aboriginalculture/history/referendum-196…(link is external)
What impact has the 1967 Referendum had on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in Australia?

The Impact has been lethal for our people’s rights. Northern Territory Intervention was supposedly put in place to prevent child abuse yet youth suicide has doubled since its enforcement. Pedophile rings remain rampant in Northern Territory headed by Non Indigenous people. Mining Royalties in the Northern Territory were seized by Jenny Macklin’s office and devied out as a ‘basics card’. In order to receive the payment allegations is those Aboriginal People have to ‘work’ for the ‘dole’ which in effect is slavery and robbery of Royalties.

1967 Referendum is deceitful as like the coming Referendum

Australians Public were deceived in the 1967 Referendum and are being deceived again on the coming Referendum. A ‘Yes’ vote will surrender Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander legal ‘Sovereign’ Stance as first Nations and amalgamate on to Australian Government ‘Colonial’ Sovereign Stance which has still never proven its Legal Jurisdiction.
* The impact of amalgamation is losing the chance of a ‘Sovereign Treaty’ for this generation and future generations.
* The Australian Government can still enforce Laws that Breach International Human Rights that are target specific for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
Australian Government and Mining Companies in Particular benefit from a ‘yes’ vote
The Australian Government have easier access to Mining Royalties outside the Northern Territory that should normally belong to the original ‘Land Owners’ (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People).

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have no extra benefit from a ‘yes’ vote

Our people actually lose all land ownership aquistition rights under Australian Constitutional Law.
We have no “Land Rights” yet thanks to the deceit of the 1967 Referendum the Australian Government can continue to make laws such as ‘Interventions’ to control, manipulate and even wipe us out all under their ‘Australian Constitution’ which holds no law against Genocide.
“Australia is now recognised as the only country in the world with a Constitution which permits racially discriminatory laws” (Chair of Oxfam Ms Hedy D’Ancona, Sydney Morning Herald, 30 October 2000).
Please complete this short poll asking about your thoughts on the future direction of First People:

http://www.surveymonkey.com/r/SRSVMDL

Race power

S.51(xxvi) is the problem. Australia is the only nation in the world with a Constitution that discriminates against people on the basis of their race. This Races power (S.51(xxvi) says that the Parliament has the power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government with respect to the people of any race for whom it is deemed necessary to make special laws. That power was extended to INCLUDE Aboriginal people at the 1967 Referendum. The problem is that the wording of S.51(xxvi) means that the laws can be made for good or ill, depending on your point of view of what ‘good’ means. Howard said ‘good’ meant the startup of the NT Intervention (and he had to suspend the Racial Discrimination Act to do that). Some Aboriginal and some white people thought the Intervention was not ‘good’. But this S.51(xxvi) has been used by the federal parliament to make laws that benefit Aboriginal people – like recognising native title, protecting sacred sites and for making direct federal payments in areas such as Indigenous education, employment and housing. If you just got rid of S.51(xxvi) you would lose those good things. Another good thing that would be lost is your ability to work towards a Treaty with the govt. because that is linked to S.51(xxvi) in the sense that it gives the federal parliament the ability to make national laws for Aboriginal people. So S.51(xxvi) needs to be reworded to save all the good things, but to make sure it can’t be used to discriminate against you. This is what the legal debate is all about, and I believe Noel Pearson is trying to hang onto the good powers and make sure the bad powers are done away with.

If u believed being recognised in the constitution was a good thing, don’t feel bad for hoping the government were finally doing something for the food of our people. Truth is though, the crown has never acted honourably wen dealing with the tribes. The government has never done anything in good faith to benefit our mob, so why would this be any different.

ALL CONTRACTS POST 1788 ARE DEEMED NULL IN VOID AS THERE HAS BEEN NO FREE, INFORMED OR PRIOR CONSENT GIVEN. LEGAL CONTRACTS ARE WRITTEN IN CODE AND WE DON’T READ CODE!!!!

A petition was received by the Queen in October 2014 with over 1600 signatures, that took 80 years to deliver. In that time nothing has changed to the point the message is still the same:
The petition states Aboriginal Australians had been robbed of their land and legal status by the Australian government.
With the backing of more than 1800 signatures, it warned of “the extinction of the Aboriginal race” if the injustice was not addressed.

There are no short cuts, we can’t treaty with the government because they are not sovereigns. This is another trick they are trying. Our youth suicide rates are the highest in the world, the least we can do is make sure what we do today is for the betterment of our children’s futures.

* Cut to funding for Vibe Australia, the most recognised platform of empowerment for Indigenous Australians;

The Referendum Council admitted that once their report goes to parliamentary hands that they lose control over the wording and the Government will have all the control.

The Panel ignored First Nations people in the audience clearly indicating they do not want to be recognised.

Meanwhile the Referendum (Machinery Provisions) Act 1984 section 11(4) stipulates that the government can ONLY spend public funds on printing 2000 word pamplets for mass mail out to the people. Go figure?

“We Were Here You Know!”
Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change it?

I have to ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

 

This our Island home

Free n easy we roam.

Disrupted 100,000 years of peace

For convicts and their police.

You’ve no jurisdiction,

With a history like science fiction.

Cause we have listened, we have learned,

We have laughed, cried and yearned…

So this Westminster system with no jurisdiction

Is about to be overturned.

Confusioned, disillusion,

where’s this rebelution?

Keep a check on how we feel,

Are we all keeping it real?

Keep checkin our relations

Cause from nation to nation

We are all racin to nowhere land and

We need to understand…

 

It’s not meant to be like this

Feelin helpless

Not meant to feel like this

Clenchin our fists.

And if we kneel and pray each day,

Is it always going to feel this way?

 

GOORI’S!!!!!!!!!!

Rise up, Rise up, Rise up.

Sovereign people still today

For a new day, for our old ways.

Time to thrive, we have survived.

Even modern day genocide.

Colonisation, segregation, assimilation and now reconciliation…

Got all our ears achin!

So let’s go walkabout n coorooboree now..

Dreamin’s alla time – anytime,

 

Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to  ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

It’s not meant to be like this

Lacking a mothers kiss

Not meant to feel like this

Lil joyfulness

If we kneel n pray, for it to go away

Is it always goin to feel this way?

 

This land where you stand needs man to understand

This is sacred land,

Everywhere you walk, sit or stand,

Our people been there.

Home 2 da rainbow serpent and the red sand

Law, histories, song and dance.

It’s coming back from the surface

To put an end to this circus.

We know a better way

From living in a better day.

Now Sssshhh, while we watch our children play.

There ain’t no mystery

We governed, we tilled and documented history.

In 2011 you can’t get away with Invasion

Put an end to this illegal occupation, of a nation,

Stop rations, listen, be patient.

Kicking off the heads of our next generation,

Now still victims of corporate racists.

We the key ingredient!

All this talk, anybody meanin it?

Experience and understanding is seldom

Yet knowledge plus consequences, equals, wisdom.

Don’t it?

 

Not meant to be like this,

Life is politics

Not meant to feel like this

Bunch of lunatics at it,

If we try a different way

Is it always goin to feel this way?

 

Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

No, No, No,

It’s not to be this way

Our spirit still strong today

It’s not meant to feel this way

Sing, dance, shout now n play

The ole way back for a new day.

Together: Dedicated to our great, great, great, great, greats,

we shall b free In our home country.

To all our childrens, childrens, childrens, children,

Keep on smiling and thrivin on your Aboriginal Island.

Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to  ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

We were here you know?
