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?
Simple acknowledgment of occupation of Australia prior to any non indigenous settlement.
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
There is ample scientific evidnce Australia was occupied by a race of people not being Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islanders. They are are not 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 think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
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?
There is sufficient law already.
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?
Should we delete section 25?
Do you have any other comments?
I will not support this change unless tbere is a lawful description of who is an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander. Based on a majority of DNA based genealogy. This to me would ensure the support to real indigenous Australians.
