Recognise believers: it wouldn’t hurt to sit with a Blackfulla who knows about this stuff before donning an R shirt and spruking the ideas and priorities of government.
At least do some research of your own.
$800 million spent on the CONstitutional reforms “Recognise” campaign.
Where did the idea of Constitutional Recognition for First Nations peoples come from?
In 1965 Prime Minister Robert Menzies noted in parliament that Aboriginal people are not Australian citizens and the government cannot legally control them.
Since when has the gov ever done anything for us? Anyways please think of how our kids mite suffer from something we were silly enough to believe.
We know the agenda is for the ‘Recognise’ campaign to coerce First Nations into accepting being included in the colonial Australian Constitution which is still an Act of the British parliament.
1967 Referendum is deceitful like the coming Referendum.
“On every occasion section 51 has been used, it’s been to harm the interests of Aboriginal people. It’s section 51 which was tested in the Hindmarsh Islands affair, and which affirmed the power of parliament to suspend the Racial Discrimination Act to specifically disadvantage Aboriginal people. This was done in Hindmarsh, in Wik, and in the introduction of the NT Intervention.” Chris Graham
Please do ur own research.
On 2 June 2015, the Aboriginal Medical Service of Western Sydney (AMSWS) broke the news on the ABC Latelineprogram that a key performance indicator of funding through the Indigenous Advancement Strategy (IAS) was demonstrable support for Recognise.
A month later comes the news that all Federal funding is ceasing and the AMSWS will be forced to close its doors to the 11,000 patients to whom it provides healthcare.
Coincidence? I don’t think so.
Here is a quick summary of the cuts we know about so far:
* $42 million cut from National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Legal Service (ATSILS);
* Cut to funding for Vibe Australia, the most recognised platform of empowerment for Indigenous Australians;
* $160 million cut from Indigenous health programs;
* $3.5 million cut to the Torres Strait Regional Authority;
* $15 million earmarked for the National Congress of Australia’s First Peoples has been cancelled;
* $9.5 million cut to Indigenous language support.
On Friday, May 20, 2016 — ABC News 24 & iveiw gave broadcast to the Indigenous Recognition in the Constitution: Discussion Panel at the Darwin Entertainment Centre as part of the Garrmalang Festival.

Meanwhile the Referendum (Machinery Provisions) Act 1984 section 11(4) stipulates that the government can ONLY spend public funds on printing 2000 word pamplets for mass mail out to the people. Go figure?
