What is your full name?
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?
These people should be recognized as the original peoples of this country whilst the original idea that Australia was uninhabited should be disregarded.
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?
Written into the constitution in some way.
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 Aboriginal people should be able to make decisions for themselves, they are the people who know what is needed, and can do so without the prejudice they encounter now.
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 think we all go by the same rules, we can all claim discrimination for some reason in our lives, you just cannot legislate people to NOT discriminate.
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?
