Eric lewis Siggurs
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 come from the UK but I am an Australian and all the locals should have been recognise when Captain Cook came. Therefore it should be up to the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander to make what should be changed
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?
I am not a legal person
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
Some are very good some are very bad, but this applies to every race.
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 other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
The Law should apply in the same way to every one, this does not mean the the Law is right. It's up to all of us to help make it right.
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?
I am still called a pommie bastard, it does not worry me.
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
I would not know how to change the Constitution but would suggest every one who goes to an AFL game sits next to an indigenous person. I did for 21years going to his funeral this year.
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?
Do you have any other comments on this Indigenous group?
We should all be treated the same
Should we delete section 25?
What would we achieve by getting rid of section 25?
If you on the electoral roll you should have equal rights.
Is there any point in keeping it?
Do you have any other comments?
I hope the submission goes well, because it is long overdue.
Are you making a submission on behalf of a person (such as yourself) or organisation?
