“We the Aboriginal Peoples of Australia have been waiting for over 200 years for formal and binding agreements with Government. We want the opportunity to take control over our lives and determine our futures through legal agreements, compacts, covenants or treaties established in law and enforceable in the courts”. – concerned Australians website

“Under the Intervention we lost our rights as human beings, as Australian citizens, as First People of the Land. We feel very deeply the threat to our languages, our culture and our heritage. Through harsh changes we have had removed from us all our control over our communities and our lives. Our lands have been compulsorily taken from us. We have been left with nothing.” - Statement of Elders: ‘In the Absence of Treaty’

First Nations leader Galarrwuy Yunipingu stated in 1987 ‘ A treaty which is recognised by international convention must state that Aboriginal People are the indigenous sovereign owners of Australia and adjacent islands since before 1770 and as such have rights and treaty rights; their sovereignty was never ceded, and the doctrine of terra nullius cannot be supported in international law as the legal basis for European occupation of, and acquisition of sovereignty over, our land.’”
(quoted from Larrissa Behrendt’s ‘Indigenous Australia for Dummies’)

(Dear Stop the Intervention Collective Sydney supporters,
We are planning to present a forum with guest speakers Rosalie Kunoth-Monks, Amy McQuire and more speakers to be announced.

Rosalie has been an outspoken advocate for her people, as seen in the film ‘Utopia’, on episodes of Q&A and she has been named the Northern Territorian 2014 person of the year. Monica has held the position of Manager of Amnesty International's Indigenous Rights Program and both have attended the Freedom Summit in November 2014. The forum will explore Treaty and its relationship to the current ‘Recognise’ campaign.

We are appealing for financial support for this important forum to be held March 20 in Sydney, marking the UN International Day for the Elimination of Racial Discrimination. First Nations Peoples of Australia are mobilising. We are on the cusp of change! Please help us with a donation.)

The thief will never be smarter then those he or she is taking from. We have the evidence needed for a case against Elizabeth Windsor, the sitting members of parliament, the crown and its agents for crimes against humanity and the grand theft of the land mass known as Australia today. Now all we gotta do is organise! Join our Facebook page to get up to the minute updates: Some of the questions we are asking to form the case: Why are the Rights and freedoms of Sovereign nationals being violated by these corporations alien to us? Is it not forbidden in International law, for alien corporations to treaty with the Sovereign Nationals? Where are the stolen chattels/private property? Where is the accountability on all levels? Regulations Respecting the laws and customs of war on land, Ch 3 Article 34: “ The parliamentarian loses his right of inviolability if it is proved in a clear and incontestable manner that has taken advantage of his privileged position to provoke or commit an act of treason.” Where are the peace officers of the Commonwealth and our Chapter 3 courts? Where is my protection and who is accountable for these crimes of Intentional Torts and abuse of powers inflicting injury, mental torture and partial loss of Life and theft of private property? Where are the International consortium's who have a treaty with the Commonwealth Nations to ensure their safety and inalienable rights and freedom are upheld? Where is our Bill of Rights and or Declaration of Independence? For our supporters we ask do u know that on top of this...... That the corrupt corporate government are sitting as an unlawful unconstitutional Corporate Government that they have Registered on the US Security Exchange in Washington D.C as "Commonwealth Australia" Registration Certificate No is 0000805157". COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA CORPORATE GOVERNMENT… CROWN IN RIGHT OF NEW SOUTH WALES = parliament of nsw CIK#: 0000071545… VICTORIA:… QUEENSLAND:… Every State and Territory have a corporate government at the helm who have changed our Commonwealth Seal to their Corporate Seal. ACTUAL COMMONWEALTH SEAL OF AUSTRALIA:… THE BIG LIE EXPOSED: Australia's current seal.…/…/consol_act/ea199580/s150.html… (COMMONWEALTH OF AUSTRALIA) IS A REGISTERED PRIVATE AMERICAN COMPANY: "Commonwealth of Australia" Registered on the Security and Exchange Commission Washington, D.C. 20549… (Info above from Velvet Revolution) And even worse than this, Recognise and Reconciliation are accounting terms to deal with our debt. Read more here: We can do this, if u support our mobs fight for independence maybe you could share this message to educate black and white today. No more being reactive, its time for proactive, peaceful lawful rebellion. Our ancestors fought longer and harder than any war in history, now its our turn. #RememberTheFrontierWars #KeepingTheFiresOfOurOldPeopleBurningStrongForever #PowerToThePeaceful #SurvivalOfTheKindest Post your evidence here please, legal team will form if this is meant to be. Sign the petition to get the case heard by the International Court of Justice (ICJ) - Grand Theft Australia - Class Action We are raising funds to make it possible to plan national “Meetings of the Minds”, inviting all tribes, grass roots community supporters and the best legal advisor’s to come together and discuss the complex issues affecting us in community and as a nation, to workshop solutions. The more support we get the more we can do. As people can probably guess, there is no financial assistance available to anyone wanting to organise the people. We cannot allow this hypocrisy to destroy the lives of the Original People of the land we all call home today, The Lucky Country! Big cases can cost big money, money that is locked away by bureaucracy. Please help us build a historic case to put an end to ongoing divide, dysfunction and disadvantage in our nation today.
