Abbott in Yirrkala

The PM has now 'fulfilled' his election promise of spending one week in an Indigenous community. However, this promise to repair the relationship between conservatives and the First Peoples of this country could have ulterior motives. Congratulations! He's chosen Yirrkala, perhaps one of the best remote communities in Australia. The town where the world-famous band, Yothu Yindi originate from. Yirrkala is also located on the picturesque coastline of East Arnhem Land with crystal clear water and an abundance of Burramundi.

don and henry continue blaming us for our own ills

whilst twiggy forrest is running around the country attempting to sell his master plan to 'save' we aborigines from our 60 000+ years of culture and history. to, in a sense, to save us from ourselves.

apparently there are thousands upon thousands of well paid jobs if we only become romany-like and travel around the country picking fruit. we just need to leave our ancestral lands and become full-time itinerants.

After a huge response from all sections of the community, the Government has backtracked on changes to section 18c of the Racial Discrimination Act, dropping their changes that would water down protections against racial vilification.

So many of you have been involved in voicing your opposition to these changes and today you’ve won. Whether you simply shared a Facebook graphic, made a submission to the enquiry or attended a rally against these changes — thank you.

Fred Chaney's absolute deceit –learn from the past and beware of “Recognise”

Michael Anderson, convenor of the Sovereign Union of Aboriginal Nations and Peoples in Australia and Head of State of Euahlayi Peoples Republic said from Goodooga today:

Indigenous arts extravaganza

Cairns has just hosted a spectacular three day arts extravaganza: the fifth Cairns Indigenous Art Fair (CIAF), featuring the work of numerous Queensland artists.

Set against a lush backdrop of forested hills, mangroves and blue seas, the artworks of the Indigenous artists were assembled within a cavernous cruise liner terminal.

Inside, the intense energy was palpable: an utterly proud and triumphant display.

14 skulls handed to traditional owners in Berlin

One of Europe’s largest university clinics, the 300-year-old Charité in Berlin, Germany, has just returned 14 skulls of Aboriginal people to representatives of the Goemulgal, Lag Mabuyag and Wajarri Yamatji peoples.

Already in April last year the Charité returned skulls and other bones of 33 Aborigines and Torres Strait Islanders the Institution had received at the end of the 19th century. That was the first repatriation of its kind of ancestral remains from Germany.

Warrants are sought for the arrest of Tony Abbott, Scott Morrison, George Brandis and others

From: "Ray Jackson"

as previously advised, isja had intended to do a view of the current human rights abuses and abrogations and the federal government's fully sanctioned criminal acts against the legitimate right of asylum seekers to come to this country. they are not 'boat people' or 'illegals', their legitimacy or otherwise must be decided only by standards of the un declaration on refugees of which australia has been a long time signatory.

instead we pass on the detailed application to show cause below and urge your full support in this action.
