Day 351: 10.30am

[Admin Toby] In a movement to educate wider Australians of ongoing Indigenous wage discrimination, during the lead up to the 50th anniversary of the Wave Hill walk-off in August 2016, a flash mob style “art installation” was staged as a form of protest which took social media by storm.

The First Nations Workers’ Alliance followed as a new organisation formed alongside the Australian Unions. With CDP workers and the community they serve to give a voice to workers being exploited, while campaigning to end the CDP and replace it with a program that works for Indigenous people rather than oppressing them.

We were really pleased to see Zachary Joseph Wone caught up with Clinton in La Perouse!

Here is more info about FNWA from Australian Unions:

The Turnbull Government’s Community Development Program (CDP) is depriving tens of thousands of people of that opportunity. It’s punitive, heavy-handed and racially discriminatory and the Union movement is determined to see it removed.

CDP workers are not actually classified as workers. They get well below the minimum wage (the dole pays $11.60/hour or $290/week) for working for 25 hours a week for non-profit and now for-profit businesses.

They are not covered by the Fair Work Act, they don’t have Federal OHS protections or workers compensation and they can’t take annual leave, sick leave or carer’s leave.

Those under the CDP are forced to work up to three times longer than city-based jobseekers to receive welfare payments.

CDP workers have 70 times the financial penalties imposed upon them than non-remote dole workers.

Fines for missing activities under CDP – which coverers a tiny fraction of the population – account for more than half the total penalties across the entire welfare system.

[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:
