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?
Aboriginal people and culture should take their rightful place in what is their own country. Recognize sovereignty with strong legislation and Aboriginal parliament stronger than ATSIC
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in a normal Australian law, but not in the Constitution.
What should the statement say?
That we recognise Aboriginal sovereignty and that the land was unlawfully stolen. We must recognize Aboriginal languages and cutures as tge culture of this country
Do you have any other comments on a statement about the First Peoples of Australia?
We cannot just have a statement we need treaties and legislation that ensures they are able to enjoy their country and the social and economic benefits it provides
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?
I think the constitution is a ery white document that is irrelevant to Aboriginal people
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Aboriginal people must make these laws
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?
Australia is a racist country and we must legislate to stop it
Should the guarantee protect all Australians against racial discrimination, or only Indigenous Australians?
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?
Strengthen racial vilification laws
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?
Not advice we need to get serious about this and work with Aboriginal people they must be a very real part of any decisions made about them
Should we delete section 25?
Is there any point in keeping it?
