Do you support recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by changing the Constitution or making some other kind of legal change?
What should the change look like?
It should be very inclusive of All aboriginal communities, and should include a full Treaty.
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
Where is the best place to put it?
Let the indiginous people decide
What should the statement say?
something very emotional and powerful
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
They suffered much when White people settled here, and are still suffering in the underclass way, so i feel very passionate for their needs.
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?
Should the Australian Parliament keep the power to make special laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
I don't know
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Any special powers should be decided by Aboriginal and islander peoples.
Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
Should the guarantee protect all Australians against racial discrimination, or only Indigenous Australians?
If there is not enough support for a guarantee in the Constitution, what other things can we do to stop racial discrimination in national laws?
Lots of government media and educational information, mailouts what discrimination is and why its so very wrong.
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
No watering down of the laws, the C law etc, it must not be accepted that its okay.
Do you think Indigenous people should have a say when Parliament and government make laws and policies about Indigenous affairs?
Should a new Indigenous group be set up under the Constitution to give advice and make sure Indigenous people have a voice in political decisions that affect them?
Is it worth creating the new group if it can only give advice and does not have the power to block new laws?
Do you have any ideas about what the new group would look like?
Allow th new group to also have the power to block veto laws etc.
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
