[Admin Toby] National Indigenous Times reports; ‘it is time for the Indigenous disciples of Constitutional recognition to turn their eyes to legislation’.
Michael Mansell adds: “I totally support the group that led the referendum push being an integral part of developing new legislation, provided some sobering lessons are learned.”
One of those lessons most notably: that the overwhelming objection to First Nations People being included in a colonial constitution is the assertion and need for regard of First Nations continued Soverienty.
Now it seems obvious the ‘Uphold and Recognise’ organisation will continue from the abandoned Recognise campaign. To further this are the events listed under their website: http://www.upholdandrecognise.com/events/
This is what I do every Monday I said the community hoping to get a answer from the government so this is what I did I don’t get I don’t get big support it just me and my friends and that’s it and I respect my friends for standing with me respect – Herbert Bropho

[Admin Toby] Last night ‘Tent City’ in Martin Place that took care of the vulnerable and homeless for 10 months was disassembled peacefully before any incident could take place with police or state authorities.
Co-ordinator Lanz Priestley made certain all people who sheltered in Martin Place found alternative accommodation. The Tent City provided a safe communal place for over 200 people since December 2016 and countless people were fed.
We share our respect and amazement at Lanz’s determination to highlight the social inequality and housing crisis faced in every major city.

Bitter sweet, they had heard the sound of the violin. They must have like it. They have good tast in music. – Noonie

Clinton’s Walk For Justice calls for support rallies and events to be held all across the country on September 3, as Clinton’s big Canberra arrival event is held.
We’ll be calling on the Governor General to meet with Clinton and begin discussions about treaty – sovereign to sovereign.
We encourage all people – from the cities all the way out to the remote communities – to take part in a national day of action to push for treaty and address issues of injustice faced by both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.
Some event ideas you could use:
A big bus-ride to Canberra!
Convoy to Canberra!
Organise rallies in your city or town!
Hold big gatherings,
Do a dance for justice,
Put up posters and banners in public,
Write letters to the Governor General and mail them all together on Sept 3
Or maybe do your own walk for justice through your town!
And make sure to create your local events on Facebook and let us know about them through the Clinton’s Walk For Justice Facebook Page, we’ll help you spread the word! You can even make us co-host if you like!
Non-Aboriginal people – it’s time to stand up in support of treaty and justice for Aboriginal people, come stand with us.
Help us finally move this country forward.
Democracy in Colour have organised a series of buses running from major cities to Canberra for this event. It is ticketed and we will be updating as we hear more. Check the Facebook Events page for more details.
Please also see this post from Admin Lisa RE Tent Embassy Camp Rules and What To Bring.

Got a email from The Museum of Australian Democracy.
I work at the Museum of Australian Democracy, based at Old Parliament House, across the road from the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra.
Clinton we’ve been following your journey with great interest and we’re all excited about your arrival in Canberra, especially now you’ve named the day.
We’re a museum that collects items that, amongst other things, represent people’s efforts to bring about better conditions for people and raise awareness of different issues.
I’m contacting you to see if you would be interested in donating something to the museum from your walk. We would love to be able to display something that tells visitors to the museum about your journey and what you were aiming to do. We’re thinking about something like one of your many pairs of worn out runners, or a flag or banner, or maybe something that someone gave you during the journey.
If you’re is happy to do this we could do a handover on the day of your arrival, when I imagine media will be there, to add another dimension to your arrival, or we could do it in the days afterwards, depending on what demands there are on your time.
Day 332: 11am
BBC news from London has email me asking to do a live interview over in London on Skype about the walk for justice. They most of gotten the story from The New York Time. The BBC news in London has over 44million follower. If I do it I know the British government and royal family will be watching it. The three think I be letten BBC news is that.
Opinions.1 = It time for the crown to had back the country of the land down under to the sovereign ower of this land we live on. It is because this country was never your in the first place your systems is a illegal and there is no treaty in place.
Opinions. 2 = On the behalf of my people and the Australian people we call on the Crown to come down here to deal with this matter we have with the Australian government because the Australian government is no long a sovereign British parliament. It now a Australia corporation government sin 1972 and this government put this law in place without putting it into a referendum for the people to vote on it and they a not following original constitution law.
Opinion. 3 – On the behalf of my people the sovereign people of this land. We call on the crown to Finley come forward and to ask for represent on the behalf of the crown to come down to the land down under to talk about treaty between us and the crown.
We what to move this country forward and we as a musculature people what the crown to hand back this land to Sovereign people an leave as friends. But we what governor general practice to be place by a governor culture council who is run by Sovereign elder’s and there be chairs for none indigenous. So the power is given back to the people and that this government should be over seen by the people.
This what the people of the land down under what.
