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?
add to the constitution Aborigines are the first nations people and a treaty in the pre amble
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?
treaty in the pre amble
What should the statement say?
the word must be Aborigine's not Indigenous.
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 think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
I don't know
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?
pre amble
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
we shouldn't even be voting on this change, this will take us off the real game and allow the government to avoid the real changes we want.
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 other comments on this Indigenous group?
a new group says that there has been a change out of our meetings and should show people (public) that we mean business this time.
Should we delete section 25?
I don't know
Is there any point in keeping it?
is this just a change for the goverment benifit
