recogniseCan you believe the Australian Constitution does not even recognise Aboriginal people?! It is good that a groundswell of support is rising to rectify this.

However, the Recognise campaign is still missing the point. It is still working from the false assumption that England has permission from the Aboriginal people to even be here, to create a country and a constitution. So in that sense, the constitution that is being reformed is a false constitution. It remains a fundamentally false foundation unless and until a treaty or similar is worked out first.

So while the rising positive sentiment about Recognise is good, the ignorance of its false premise is not so good.

I want to see both-and: it just seems logical to address treaty first, then do constitutional reform in the light of that treaty.

Check out the ‘VoteNotoConstitutionalReform’ page on FB to understand why black leaders calling for sovereignty are against the Recognise campaign.
