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?
Identifying the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the First Peoples of Australia
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?
At the beginning?
What should the statement say?
That's not my 'department' to say. But the Australian people acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the First Peoples of Australia would be simple enough. I'm not sure what the 'repercussions' of this would be.
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?
I don't know
Should the Australian Parliament keep the power to make special laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Do you have any ideas on what new words could be used to describe that power, or where in the Constitution to put the power?
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
Do you have any ideas about what words to use for that guarantee, or where in the Constitution to put it?
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?
Education, education, education. Its not just racial discrimination, its those with disabilities and sexual bias or otherwise who are also discriminated against. Why can't people just be nice to eachother?
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
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?
I don't know
Do you have any other comments on this Indigenous group?
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
Everyone should be counted.
Is there any point in keeping it?
Do you have any other comments?
