Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
It is an absolute disgrace that our indigenous people have been left out of our constitution and the sooner this happens the better!
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Too many of our young indigenous people are ending up in jail because of the total disfunction in their lives, lack of education, and the lack of hope in a future for themselves. This must change with indigenous children being empowered through education
Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
Should the guarantee protect all Australians against racial discrimination, or only Indigenous Australians?
All Australians
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?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
Human equality.
Is there any point in keeping it?
