A New Take on blackfellas

  Many will have noticed that I have not been online as much as previously.There are some simple reasons. One is that I came to the realisation that much of what we discussed was driven by Government. I see them as the problem and not part of the solution. Allowing government to insinuate itself unwanted into our communities is akin to entering a discussion on Aids with the disease. I won't be promoting or participating in such dialog in future

I'm Gutted

I should be on my way to work... dropped by to see SydneyH and checked the News.Yesterday I heard that my sister-in-law had been brutalised -offshore - shes safe now..read more about this in @RadioYerevans Tweets & on her blog-later,I think. in Armenia where despite the vagaries of that countrys politics and relationships, my children live...because they are safe ... from the Anglo invaders who spent the last 222 years perpetrating the longest, slowest Genocide mankind has ever recorded...against the longest existing races on the planet .I checked the news...found this...and I'm gutted.

Tuncurry Native Title Sale-of-the-Century

40,000 years of aboriginal autonomous rights in the Tuncurry area of NSW will come to an end in 2040. The Federal Minister for Lands has won a great victory for colonialism by finessing a cheap deal with a few aboriginal locals who have questionable tribal authority to enter into such an agreement. The deal $10million to be paid over 30 years, for 400 hectares of prime coastal land described as "of immense cultural and commercial value" is the bargain of the decade for colonist landgrabbers and a distardly shame foisted on future generations of the Worimi Birpai people, who,by the decision of some current "leaders" and their advisors, are rendered landless,with no future relationship with their ancestral home.  

 The notion of tribal relationship with land and resources is that we are each an inseparable part of each other -each exists to benefit the other. The aboriginal tribe comprises those of the past, those of the present and those of the future. 

 The question raised by this and like deals is that of authority- do any generation have the authority to "make deals" -good or bad - which result in a changed relationship with ancestral resources being imposed on future generations without their consent.  

 The deal brings to the fore the Federal Governments lack of goodwill in dealing fairly and equitably with aboriginal people. It is unconceivable  that $10million paid over 30 years represents fair value for 400 hectares of prime coastal real estate anywhere in NSW by current land values.

On Yuendumu and Us and You

  Unusual of me not to buy into a controversy so I'll add my ten cents worth to the discussion on Yuendumu the Central Australian community at the intersection of white and black law.The town is predominantly black, with most community members being native to the area. Customary law has been the successful guardian of the people and life forces of the area since the dreamtime. Were it not for the invasion of colonial law and its undermining of local justice, customary law would continue to be as effective as it has for millenia- including in combating new problems such as alcoholism drug and solvent abuse foisted upon black communities by invaders. Remote blackfellas see the effectiveness or otherwise of soft white law which makes no sense to many. Berrima Jail is seen by some as a rewards program which you have to do something bad to enjoy the fruits of. By all accounts Berrima is as spartan and hostile an environment as most western jails- but its a luxury resort when compared to some of the government delivered housing and community options available in remote communities.Since arrival successive Governments and their cronies have unleashed wave after wave of remotely driven policy -based on their Toorak Dinner perceptions of whats good media for them as compared with inclusive discussion of whats in our genuine interests. The public need to be aware that every time government have acted "in the best interests" of aboriginal people or children,a future government has apologised for that past governments actions. Neither we, affected non aboriginal children or our children as yet unborn can use apologies as collateral-nor can we eat them or use them for shelter or warmth.

 If government agencies or others at any level are genuine in their rhetoric of delivering better services to aboriginal communities they need but listen to the people of those communities, at a time and venue of the relevant communities choosing. And deliver the services the people are actually seeking, not their perception of whats good for that community. Current and past service delivery has taken a blanket approach- attempting to use a situation in one community as justification to roll out an expensive and in many cases totally unnecessary and unrequested "services". It has failed our people.It has failed the taxpayers of Australia who are burdened with the expense they could do without. Training for jobs which don't deliver equity (if the jobs actually exist) is training for slavery.We should not be coerced into it and you should not support it.  


Learn Earn Legend -Fail

   New Minister Mike Arbib's statement "Aboriginals need to get out of bed" is the typical view,apparently from the vantage point atop a substantial pile of taxpayers dollars. It is the typical racist redneck rant which blames aboriginal people for the "predicament" we are in. It also makes the stereotypical assumption that aboriginals lie in bed all day, along with the attendant derogatory snapshots.

 Senator Mark Arbib would do well to ensure that his and Jenny Macklin's pre-election aboriginal stunt 100 "Best and Brightest" under the banner Learn,Earn,Legend fulfils the promises made to those starry eyed aboriginal students. Several have reported being given the runaround as to why the department could no longer fulfil training assistance promises made in the course of that sojourn. Staff have left -and the usual litany of excuses have been trotted out in response to followup inquiries from the 6 students who have contacted us. We're tweeting this to @SenMarkArbib   and awaiting his response... prior to publishing first hand accounts from some of the Students who attended 

GenerationOne ::The Invasion Continues

 All the goodwill in the world or cynical colonialism? A whos who of those who have benefited magnificently from the Poverty and Marginalisation Industries have lined up behind new found pin-up boy Andrew "Twiggy" Forrest of Fortescue Metals fame to once again save aborigines - or maybe make a few more millions using the name of aboriginal people. 

 GenerationOne has all the hallmarks of the type of manna organisations like serial preyers Mission Australia and Exodus Foundation - and their State and Federal government collaborators crave. At a time when aboriginal people are awakening to the equity gap -and the unjust government floated notion that in order to obtain equity, we must slave in "jobs" to "earn" what Australia's colonist forebears took for nothing - GenerationOne offer jobs. A quick scan of their website show not empowering jobs, but dead end training "opportunities" and menial wageslavery positions. These, along with the $4 per hour Work for the Dole opportunities currently being forced on aboriginal dole recipients carrying out essential services in the Northern Territory are GenerationOne 's Pathway to aboriginal empowerment.

 GenerationOne people both aboriginal and non-indigenous government and Non-government and their industry supporters need to take a look at themselves. The rest of Australia need to take a closer look at what these people and organisations will get in increased revenues. If the return to the helpers is greater than the benefit to the wider aboriginal community, as I suspect is the case, then aboriginal people are once again being cynically offered up as revenue collection tokens in a game which enriches the advisors while continuing the disenfranchisement of our aboriginal peoples and communities 

Aboriginal v The Rest: The Widening Gap

   Despite the government sourced mainstream media generated hyperbole, if the gap were an asyss in the recent colonial past then today its as wide as the Tasman Sea. Whether in reaction to government bullying coercion and child theft,or for self perceived economic or social reasons,aboriginal people attempt to engage with and understand the Colonial English culture which masquerades as Australian.Irrespective of their academic success most aboriginal people wait in vain for the benefits to kick in.Invariably,they are relegated to subordinance in terms of self worth,relative to "other ethnicities".This gap is widest when the comparison is aboriginal vs anglo.

  The gap between aboriginal control and Colonial control is widening.Whereas until the 1990s aboriginal peoples had only had control of their resources, human rights culture and political autonomy usurped, todays aboriginal people face the decimation of their communities and dissipation of their families by bi-partisan government forces dedicated to the eradication of all aboriginal control-even over our children.

  But the gap is widest when the comparison is between aboriginal people acquiring non traditional "skills" and learning about "other ethnic" and "invader" cultures in Australia and "Other Australians" acquiring aboriginal based learning. Learning the rich tapestry of traditions of aboriginal lore,the oldest continuously existing culture known to humankind. Surprisingly, measured in terms of learning, aboriginal people are way out in front in relative cultural learning, with most having acquired at least rudimentary knowledge of "non-aboriginal" and especially colonist english culture. In stark contrast non-aboriginal learning of any aboriginal culture from traditional sources is virtually non existent. 

 While many engage in "aboriginal studies" via non-aboriginal institutions, they, including many aboriginals who do so, will at best come away with a non aboriginal perspective of aboriginal people and culture gleaned in sterile isolation, sourced from documents and books and out of synchronicity with the places and people in which that particular culture belongs. 

My line in the Sand

There seems to be some angst among some of my mainly non-indigenous followers who view some of my posts as perhaps anti-white.So lets get specific. 

 The laws of Colony Australia were written to benefit Anglo's.Their laws enshrine and protect their often questionable values,over all other cultures.Paradoxically these laws repress aboriginal people culture values and aspiration most -and progressively according roughly to shades of colour and adherence to ones ethnic cultural values (or otherwise).Or,simply, "The Whiter You Are,The Righter You Are."

 Those who actively promote adherence to the anglo laws which persecute aboriginal people ( all current Australian Laws do),I despise,wouldn't piss on if they were on fire and I was busting for a piss-and I include some people with solely aboriginal heritage in this list.

 At the other end of the scale are people whom I would happily die for -people who uphold the view of Equity Equality as a starting point for discussion with any other parties by aboriginal people.People who reject the assimilated group selected by Labor to represent aboriginals in discussions about our future,because they are more representative of Anglo-rebadged-as-Australian than of aboriginal people.People who reject the notion of aboriginal equality existing in Australia today,or at any point post 1788. People who actively commit to ending the repression not only of our aboriginal peoples but of the other ethnicities repressed by Anglos-masquerading-as-Australian.People who also commit to ending the wanton and irreversible destruction of our land our oceans and our rivers whose vitality is being milked for the short term gain of a few billionaire capitalists and their Exploitative Merchant Equity partners.Some of these people have 100% Anglo ancestry in fact there are even some who have never left the shores of England...
 Thats my line in the sand....

The Top Ten Colonist Self Justifications Answered

1/ I didn't steal anything. No, but you accept the benefits.Assets stolen from aboriginal people are the equity which powers your people.You live on Stolen land.

2/You have to move forward. So you would like me to accept the laws which were made to benefit you, and work hard to enrich those who are in posession of what was stolen from us? Fuck you!!

3/ Aboriginals must share responsibility for where they are today. Why,and how? We didn't have the guns and bullets used to massacre our people,nor the contaminated blankets.We didn't bring old diseases like smallpox or new diseases like aids.We didn't build cities which cluster way too many people where there are insufficient natural resources.We do not control any economic sector or resource.All have been stolen. Even the land and resources which we have fought for and some say you have given back, are locked in structures ( Such as Land Councils) according to the dictates of todays colonist government.The notion that we must share responsibility is ridiculous.

4/ I was born here. You may have been,but where was your culture born?My culture has been here 40,000 years, by your count.

5/ We all have equal rights. No, people of Anglo descent have laws which are based exclusively on their culture. According to those law makers,we should abide by laws which protect you,not us. There is no legal framework which protects us from you. Anglo numerical superiority is regulated and ensured at immigration level by Anglo dominated Federal Government.The rights whites enjoy are enforced on their behalf by anglo focussed and predominantly anglo-ethnic police,trained according to methods which originate in England.They are part of your community,not ours.Putting aboriginal people in those uniforms simply makes coconuts of the people,to be ridiculed and scorned by their communities as sellout traitors.

6/ Look what Aboriginals did with ATSIC: ATSIC was a government organisation subject to policies governance and mechanisms put in place by colonist government.Those laws and regulations ensured that ATSIC always maintained a dominant role in the entities created-and thereby set them up to fail. ATSIC did not have a process in place to ensure that incoming elected officers of entities were aware of ATSIC required governance issues.Unsurprisingly, those issues were breached with monotonous regularity.Because ATSICs largely non aboriginal bureaucracy and attendant contracted professionals did not put in place appropriate guidance governance and information management resources, ATSIC and many of its subservient aboriginal corporations failed.

7/ Government spends a billion dollars a year on aboriginals: Government allocations in the name of aboriginal people are by and large spent with the non aboriginal community, and on government assimilation projects. Under the Howard regime, funds expended opposing Aboriginal Land Claims were deducted from aboriginal budgets. Non aboriginal "consultants" and professionals conducting "research" required by the government, which most aboriginal community members neither know or care about. In 3 years of the NT intervention, government have managed to expend hundreds of millions in the name of our people.They built 3 houses,the only benefit I have seen.

8/ Aboriginals don't work: Those who do pay taxes,effectively funding their own repression.Much of the work done by aboriginals prior to 1970 remains unpaid,for both private and government employers.This means that cutting through the duplicitous language,aboriginal people were enslaved.Today many aboriginal people staff government directed semi autonomous organisations which bear the Aboriginal name somewhere in their title.In these roles,aboriginal people are typically paid less than their white counterparts who perform the same tasks in non-aboriginal focussed institutions.In health,the Rudd government gave regional doctors $25000 per nurse "or less for an aboriginal health worker."

9/We gave you the right to vote: Yes,having spent many years prior racing to stack the deck via your ten pound pom immigration policy to ensure that the vote was worthless to us.

10 We must all move forward together: Our timeline here in your terms is 40,000 years-longer than you are known to have inhabited where you come from.Your timeline kicks in 222 years ago. We've come this far separately.Why should we go forward with you in control and our peoples as subservient slaves?

WA Premier Barnett's Extractive Selectivity

 Trying to fathom Western Australia's Premier Colin Barnett's extractive policy as fair reasonable and moral requires a spin doctoring effort of which the Federal Labor Party would be proud.
  Premier Barnett supports the protests calling for the cessation of Margaret River Coal Mining, for good reason-yet has initiated processes to confiscate aboriginal land at James Price Point in the States north east to enable a gas hub from which to distribute Gas from equally contentious offshore gasfields.
 Both place considerable pristine environment at risk.The Margaret River area is predominantly white owned. James Price Point is Stolen Aboriginal Land,currently contested in a Native Title Claim.If the relative ownership demographic is coincidental,then what exactly does Barnett base this selective logic on? 


Equity the Cornerstone of Aboriginal Future

  All discussions of aboriginal future must start with aboriginal equity parity.

Aboriginal Communities have borne the brunt of cynically oppressive government strategies since federation. The current crop of State,Federal and Territory governments and main opposition parties have clearly demonstrated their intent to continue their repressive agenda of assimilation, cultural contamination and resource theft.
Recently in the Northern Territory an aboriginal government minister came to the realisation that conventional politics holds no solutions for aboriginal people.She is right.For as long as we continue to engage with colonists, whose aim is to convince us how right they are(and how wrong we are) we participate in the genocide of ourselves, our people and the places and species over which we have guardianship.
I've spent the last few weeks working closely with Sydney Homeless on some projects of mutual interest.Of course, we both work on the resolution of marginalisation issues. While I will be the first to say that aboriginal and Torres Strait people are not the only marginalised communities in Australia, it world be hard to find marginalisation so endemically entrenched and systemically applied, now over many generations.
  Entire State and Federal government departments (and a bevy of contractors) exist to provide "aboriginal" services.They are services which are a priority in the white community-not a priority for us. While Government departments tell and the mainstream media gleefully regurgitate that we need to take ownership of what whites see as our major problems,we cannot and should not take ownership without control,or control without capital equity. 
 The reality is that we don't have equity because these colonists came and stole it,and despite apologies and rhetoric refuse to offer meaningful compensation or give the resources back.If the Federal Government supported efforts of WA neocon Barnett are a fair example, in fact they fully intend to go right on stealing

Coconut Education vs Traditional Learning

It comes as no surprise that NAPLAN tests show aboriginal children still falling behind in the one-way, racist street called education. The learning, cultural delivery aspects are 100% european, rebadged as "Australian in the same way North American sourced General Motors Products were rebadged as "Holden". Aboriginal children parents and communities are culturally and personally insulted on a daily basis by a foreign education system which daily dimishes and devalues our culture. While English and UK history are taught from the bosom of their culture, as juxtaposed carelessly across our country, the closest to any of our cultures "taught" is "aboriginal studies", in a hostile anglophile environment, under the control of, and with subject matter ultimately determined by, yes,ultimately, our oppressors, the neo-colonist governments who as queens in the mould of Marie Antoinette (excepting as elections draw near) rule over us. So what exactly, is this "aboriginal culture" they teach? A mish-mash conjectured by eminent professorial scholars as being representative of the 710 distinctly different languages and cultures which make up the rich tapestry of our collective peoples. A mish-mash which brings an air of self satisfaction,perhaps, to the uninitiated,to the tokenist - yet remains irrelevant to the majority of aboriginal people. Our cultures languages and places are intrinsically inseparable, and any attempt to teach one in isolation from the rest, or the rest in isolation from one, will not, and should not, succeed. Each tribal group must have the liberty to develop and nurture their own culture, in a manner completely under their control, as they see fit.Only finance is required to reknit the shredded torn fabric of our cultures,places and peoples.These learning places should be at the exclusive determination of the aboriginal peoples uncontaminated by colonist education-including myself.These structures should not and must not be subjected to controls of any external powers- That was the inevitable failing of the ATSIC model, and will be a key failing of the intervention.
Whose aboriginal culture,exactly,do these arrogant people teach? Theirs?Certainly not mine.

The proposition that aboriginal communities should have autonomy for the reperpetuation of our cultures, for our own as well as non-aboriginal peoples educational benefit ,would deliver educational parity- they teach their culture values et. al.They teach in their learning environment of choice, and we teach ours. They set their measures of success,and we set ours. This would afford our young people the comfort of a friendly learning environment, our elders the dignity of having their culture and learning gain parity of respect. This will incentivise our youth and communities to have the respect for our culture and learning which is theirs to carry forward. It is well known that the socio-economic status of aboriginal culture in the context of the wider Australian education system is negligible- disregarded, a mere tourist novelty.To change this aboriginal culture and education must have cultural parity.

As to our children's participation in, acceptance in and acceptance of the White education system - in its current form our extinction is arguably the cynical colonist plan today,and certainly the inevitable result. I would find it inconceivable that an aboriginal raised parent could truthfully give their child confidence in any aspect of any Australian educational vehicle, private public or otherwise. Australian education is so systemically monocultural and racist, so alien in its values and aims, that only aboriginals who have been "whitened on the inside" will support it.

State Land Theft in Kimberleys #nogashub

West Australia Premier Colin Barnett has started procedures in State Parliament to sieze land from the Kimberley Land Council .The land is desired by a group of multinational extractive companies with interests in proposed multibillion dollar offshore Gas Fields. This consortium comprising some of the biggest and most controversial names in Oil and Gas Extraction internationally would like to use the land to facilitate the onshore processing of gas for Statewide and export distribution.

 The moderate Kimberley Land Council has previously signed a heads of agreement with the Gas Field Consortium and Western Australian government but this has been challenged by a progressive Aboriginal traditional lawmaker who disputes the KLCs right to control of the desired Gas Hub location,known as James Price Point. That legal challenge has been dismissed by the courts, nevertheless,Premier Barnett insists on pursuing his land confiscation "in the interests of giving Woodside certainty and providing aboriginals with "jobs".

 Premier Barnett's contention is just the latest in the European colonial process of simply grabbing whatever they wish to take and paying or not what they wish as they please. The Premiers declaration that he wishes to provide Woodside with certainty presents the notion that Woodsides (and the consortium it represents) interests should have priority over any other.Or in broader terms that international capitals interests are of greater concern than local peoples and in particular local aboriginal people.Woodside or its consortium partners do not have any current interests in or association with the area. The Aboriginal claimants to the land have proven one of the longest continuous associations with and connections to land by any people anywhere in the world.The Kimberley Land Council position, as I believe is its duty,is to leverage the best possible opportunity it can for the whole its constituency as quantified by that community.
 Premier Barnetts rationale-he ran out of patience- is really a shotgun to the heads of the local aboriginal community bullying them to accept such scraps as the Woodside Consortium and State Government might deign to throw their way in the form of short term "jobs".  Premier Barnett cannot wait for proper scientific analysis of the undeniable environmental impact of the Gas Hub to be available and appropriately digested by the community prior to the parties entering into a binding agreement.
 Aside from the areas concern to preserve its world renowned eco-tourism based on pristine marine ecology, there are the local Cobia and Whale breeding grounds. The gas hub will almost certainly bring more shipping to the area and navigational sonar and radar common to modern shipping has a negative impact on marine life navigational capabilities.
  There is also a nebulous grey area relating to the mining "camp", said to be planned to house 5000 people, and its impact on the wider community as well as the much more local aboriginal communities. There is no clearly defined available surplus natural resource of potable water,leaving aside consideration of the massive call for this scarce commodity for industrial use. This aspect is a concern of the Civic authorities in nearby Broome, who are demanding that workers be subjected to prison like constraints on their liberties in their recreational time in a "closed camp" model. Unions representing minesite workers are understandably hostile to such a proposal.

 The local aboriginal communities whose custodianship has had a lot to do with the current pristine state of the precarious ecology have due cause to express their concern.This project marks another step in the genocide of their culture.Land which is theirs will pass perhaps irreversibly to the short sighted hands of people who live in Ivory Towers in most cases in other countries.People whose actual interest in the proposed James Price Gas Hub is driven by a few lines representing dollars on an excel sheet. Whether that concern is articulated and settled by The Kimberley Land Council or another group is not the issue. The issue is that any progression of a project which could have such a profound impact on the local indigenous way of life should only progress with the informed consent of the community.

 The Kimberley Land Councils position is by no means radical or even very progressive.They are content to see indigenous jobs flow from the project,with few other non housekeeping terms.They do not seek to share in ownership of the project as I would be advocating if my community was pro development.They do not seek leading edge environmental measures.They merely want the concerns and future of their community to be a significant factor. Isn't that fair?

 Couched in the flowery language of colonialism Premier Colin Barnett's words and actions really say "Nigger,you have the right to do as you're told". To a chorus of applause from Woodside, BHP, BP and Chevron,those international masters of indigenous and environmental exploitation.

NT Banned Drinker Register Racism-in-the-Making

 The Northern Territory's banned drinker register is a highly suspect legislation in a jurisdiction noted for its police racism. The law will be applied by a police force which is overwhelmingly white in makeup.Like all Australian police forces, even the few ethnic and fewer aboriginals in police uniforms have had much of their ethnicity edited out of their mindset by the mono-cultural anglo centric training regime common to all State Police Academies.In a Territory noted for its comparatively high aboriginal population with widespread and justified abhorrence of police, there is little doubt that these laws are a cynical state tailored tool of systemic racism.
 Not only will this experiment fail-it will also drive prostitution and drug use higher. The law will be deceptively easy to circumvent via numerous routes.There will be those affected who simply give their money to someone else to buy alcohol.Their will be those who resort to prostitution to offset the higher cost of purchasing "sly grog." There will be those who simply turn to pot, or other recreational drugs,as a cheaper option.

 There will be an increase in consumption of homebrew products and kava sellers will be ecstatic at the sudden increase in demand for their wares.Sly Grogging will boom.The failed US Prohibition should have taught the entire western world that prohibition only lasts a very short period of time,bringing with it the attendant waiters servants and maitres'd in the smorgasbord of high risk,high profit illicit enterprise.

 Flowing from these laws, the Territory can thank its out-of-touch bureaucrats and legislators for providing the trojan horse which organised crime will ride into their region. Aboriginal people in the Northern Territory will be at the vanguard of the imposition of draconian laws. The only aboriginal people in the territory I'm aware of who support this type of legislation are paid government servants or contractors. 

 For aboriginal people the answer lies not in the imposition of penalties on people who are the victims of wilful government policy failures, but in empowering those victims to work for something which they can readily recognise as personally, familially and community empowering. That inevitably means regaining equity and political control of their own destiny-NOT having outsiders whose presence has had as negative an impact as an aids epidemic dictate their future.

Whitefella give us EVERYTHING

I been thinking and it seems I might have been a bit hard on whitefellas...I'm seeing that they really are a giving people.I know just a coupla years ago they gave a blackfella mob Maralinga.Okay,they nuked it and probably contaminated it for a quarter of a million years to come, but they gave it to blackfellas,didn't they? Okay, yeah, it wasn't theirs in the first place, but if it belonged to blackfellas they gave it back,didn't they? 

They're such a giving mob, whitefellas.

 They give us Uluru too.And all these other beautiful national parks.Sure they gave them on the condition that we allow them to be managed by the government, but thats so they can show us how to look after them proper. In all the 40,000 years we been here we never managed to look after the place like whitefellas can and we gotta learn to do it as well as they do.Thats why its best they manage it.And its fair that their people get four times what we do yet we do all the work .. they know so much more than we do,why everyone knows you learn so much more at ewneeversitee in 3  years than listening to all these old fellas who been out here forever...what would they know??

 Then theres the vote, they give us that in 1966 they did.Now,we never had that before!! What?? You're whinging because they had it and we didn't up 'til then?? You're a bloody whinger, mate!! They would have given it to us earlier but they knew we wouldn't know how to use it proper way.Now you think If I gave you a loaded gun with the safety off but didn't teach you how to shoot properly.You might have killed yourself!! And a few of your mates too if you threw it in the fire on a cold night...nah, wouldn'ta killed me,I already know how to shoot. But you get my point; what use is a vote to you if you don't know how to use it...its bloody dangerous.See,them whitefellas know. They knew we should have it- and just to make sure we didn't do anything stupid with it-like voting them out- they brought a whole lotta other whitefellas out here for twenty odd years before they gave us the vote..yeah they were called ten pound poms. And that saved us from what we might have done with that bloody vote.Cos by the time they give it to us,there were so many of them and so few of us that we couldn't do any harm with it..like jeez...we might have gone completely off the rails and voted them out otherwise!! See, after all they done that just would have been SOOOO unfair!!

 And see them whitefella missionaries, they gave us God.And because we have God now, we can forgive. We couldn't of done that without whitefella either. Now, everytime whitefella takes something that I thought was mine, I don't wanna kill him,I just forgive.Hes happy,missionary's happy, so I'm happy.An all these other blackfellas would be a lot happier if they would just learn to smile and forget..

 Then theres education.Everyone knows you need an education proper way to get on in life, heck,you need an education just to do a training course these days!! The important thing about education for me is that now I can learn what it means to be a blackfella proper way - from a whitefella , and they got lotsa whitefellas we don't even see who know more bout "aboriginal" than any of us. And they're clever too.They don't need to meet us or see where and how we live.They can see all the way from their offices in Canberra and know whats best for us.Now you can't do THAT blackfella way.

 And they gave us Aids and Measels and Whooping Cough and just two years after they got here they give us smallpox AND blankets too... so don't tell me whitefella never done nuthin for us!!

No Safe Public Place for Aboriginal Kids

In her sentencing remarks the presiding Judge states that "Children should be able to walk the streets and feel safe.And who would disagree?
For aboriginal children, sadly,walking the streets in Safety has never been an option.For our children the major threat is not sexual deviants but whole-of-government interference in our right to enjoy our land and country.At street level the threat is Police, Childrens Services and the myriad of mandatory reporter NGOs who would have us live as whitey thinks we should, slave our lives away in subservience to and for the enrichment of a white master, pay taxes to fund the destruction of our culture, and give of course to their racist churches. The fewer of these we do, the more likely whitey is to try and insinuate their invadercide into our lives. A little over a year after PM Rudds hollow meaningless apology, State abductions of aboriginal children and in particular babies reached epidemic proportions.We have no reason to believe that the tide of State childstealing and family destruction will abate under the "Give me Power" Ultra Right Wing Gillard Labor Model.  
  In spite of the multiplicity of often Government manufactured "reasons", the bare fact remains that State Abductions occur for the purpose of whitening,de aboriginalising and colonising our children. In the last 2 years we have seen a system implemented in NSW where the widely discredited DOCs (now renamed) takes a back seat leaving day to day case administration to, by and large, the Mandatory Reporters upon whom the department relies for prosecution information. Those NGOs are of course funded on a caseload basis and in no particular rush to lose that funding-at a reported $6000 per child per week.

This built in recipe for corrupt case management puts case managers in the position of controlling the case managed family which is very simply blackmail. Bury it in all the flowery language you care to,and its still blackmail.

Well people, as NGO case managers have accepted the rivers of money to sell themselves to DOCs, they deserve to be treated with the same disdain as we treat DOCs, and all neocolonist operatives. Don't piss on them if they're on fire unless you piss petrol.
