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?
I am not sure ?
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?
a statement drafted and made at the begining of the constitution
What should the statement say?
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders, our first peoples and are held in high esteem as first owners of this land!
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?
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?
No, I am not sure?
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 sure?
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 a claim at the High Court of Australia to empower people 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?
A overseeing group of people, who would be representative of indigenous peoples of Australia
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
It would create harmony amongst all races of peoples
Is there any point in keeping it?
Do you have any other comments?
