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 would like to see Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples being recognised in the first/opening statement in the constitution.
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?
It must be visible
What should the statement say?
It must state that Australia recognises that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are the traditional owners of the land and they are recognised asthe 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?
The powers must be about equity, recognition and protectionism
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?
It must make reference to Australias First Peoples, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander.
Should the guarantee protect all Australians against racial discrimination, or only Indigenous Australians?
Indigenous Australians only
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?
It should be a lawful act specifying ATSI peoples
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
Indigenous Australians must be given a guarantee in the constitution which affords them protection from all forms of racisim. All other Australians should be protected by the Racial Discrimination Act and the EO Act and this does not need the same level o
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?
Must be representitive of Indigenous peoples from all states and territories
Do you have any other comments on this Indigenous group?
It is time to formally recognise Australias Firt Persons. They must have a voice and be able to put their case on matters that conern or affect their co mumities.
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
All Australian citizens should be able to vote except convicted terrorists and or terrorist sympathizers
