Comment on First Nations want a ‘Voice’ enshrined in the constitution by Paul Parker.

Some Australians support, promote and practice racism.
Most Australians support, promote and practice equality of opportunity, equality of rights and equality of responsibility.
Policies of racist’s usually about benefit for themselves based upon who their ancestors were.
Racist approaches to resolving past differences similar to various fundamentalists like the Taliban/ISIS.
Australians at Federation, then again in 1967 voted for equality of opportunity, equality of rights, equality of responsibilities, all these to be without racial testing of Australians.
Compensation for past racism, does not require racism continue.
The Uluru meeting IMHO is more about ensuring ongoing racism, by trickery upon Australian’s Constitution, thus is to be rejected.
The ongoing failures to thrive in communities is due the focus upon, the decisions to operate with, racist approaches.
Many communities still need change to reject their use of racist approaches, stop hiding behind racist legislation.
This particularly for communities with the label “Indigenous”, for they are disadvantaged by such.
Many communities in the NT have control over what they can do, yet fail to accept their own responsibility to improve things for themselves.
Those who apply self-help, accept responsibility for what they achieve, and where they fail to achieve, can do better.
Constantly blaming others, particularly historical events, for what is or what happens today, discourages support.
Equality of opportunity does not guarantee equality of results, though to deny equality of opportunity ensures failures.

‘Safe nuclear power known since 2009’
Australians mostly accept the existence of some nuclear benefits but they maintain opposition to wider nuclear development.
This means Australians may support replacement of our ageing Lucas Heights facility, when know where it will be.
Nuclear participants need STOP promoting activities wider than our existing Lucas Heights if it is to be replaced.
Replacement of our Lucas Heights facility will ensure our needs for various nuclear products will continue to be provided within Australia.
Replacement of our Lucas Heights facility enables continued production, training, and research with public education.
Australians involved in public discussions of other plans then may feel better prepared to discuss alternative facilities.
The Australian public needs to approve or reject other facilities in our wider community.


Warlpiri don’t want Zachary Rolfe murder trial to be in Darwin
More on the Rolfe Murder trial: “In the Northern Territory, persons charged with serious offences are tried by a Judge and jury in the Supreme Court. This ensures every person accused of a serious crime receives a fair trial, free from government or political influence.”
This is worth reading to understand the process.
In different state/territories the rules may permit Defendants to choose they be tried before a Judge only.


Street kids: What cops can do
Australians sought Federation to ensure all Australians shared same legal rights with same legal responsibilities.
Since Federation our Commonwealth government has ignored, enticed, persuaded, encouraged, or justified its own government actions or failures to act by abusively using the term “Aboriginal” claiming that was sufficient justification for the Commonwealth’s actions and inactions.
The Commonwealth refuses to accept ALL Australians hold equal legal rights with equal legal responsibilities.
Australian voters in the 1967 Referendum re-stated their Federation intention that ALL Australians share the same legal rights and legal responsibilities without qualification using racial identification.
We need to extinguish ALL Australian governments’ claims that racism upon Australians is lawful.
Racism is no justification for treating Australians, particularly children, differently.


Seeking equality as Indigenous distrust of government peaks
The cited “limitation of democracy” and “muffled voices” was ended when Neville Bonner was appointed To the Senate in 1971.
Consider his election in his own right by popular vote in 1972, 1974, 1975 and 1980.
Since Neville Bonner broke the ice, others have been elected.
Australians support equality of legal rights and legal responsibilities as Australians.
Australian voters’ silence is towards in-equality.
The Uluru Statement promotes in-equality, not equality.
