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?
An acknowledgment that the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are the First Australians.
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
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?
Can the words "to benefit and to preserve the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people's culture and heritage " be included at this point?
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 think it is appropriate to make a separate statement against racial discrimination because it applies to everyone.
Should the guarantee protect all Australians against racial discrimination, or only Indigenous 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?
Do you have any ideas about what the new group would look like?
I would ask ATSI leaders what would work for them because they would need to represent more than 200 different groups.
Do you have any other comments on this Indigenous group?
Is there anyway this group could be given a vote or a percentage vote at a senate level?
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
Get rid of opportunities for Racial discrimination
Is there any point in keeping it?
Are you making a submission on behalf of a person (such as yourself) or organisation?
