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?
It is an imposition to ATSI people and being a colonial document has no meaning or value. While most ATSI people are disadvantaged by the imposing colonial society it is an offensive dichotomy.
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?
"Special Laws to compensate negative consequences of British settlement, address injustices and lack of essential services, allow Elders and their communities to hold and enact their own Laws of Justice, Government and Council.
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
A provision should only be inserted that "Special Laws" are only made for the betterment of ATSI people's lives, as they are Sovereign people outside of the colonial settlement of Great Britain and should not be recognised as subjects of the British Crown
Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
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?
A colonial constitution should not apply to underlying Soveriegn Nations. They can be no negotions on such matters until Treaties between the nations are put to the Crown / acting nation
Should we delete section 25?
