What is your full name?
What is your postal code?
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 recognise ATSI people as the first people of this land and show them as the original custodians of this land. We should be respecting their sacred sites and Dreaming tracks.
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 of the constitution.
What should the statement say?
I am not clever enough to word such an important statement.
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
I regard this as more important than our referendum to give ATSI people the vote! This is way overdue.
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?
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Laws for all Australians, not special laws for ATSI people!
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?
I am not a lawyer, so no, but there is too much racism in this country.
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?
Make sure our politicians abide by our exsisting discrimination laws to set an example.
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?
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?
There are so many intelligent, high profile, caring indigenous people, it woulld not be hard to form a group!
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
Why should certain races be excluded from voting? Really? In this day and age?
Is there any point in keeping it?
