The UN’s indigenous agenda

The UN’s indigenous agenda

By ONE VOICE AUSTRALIA

For years those responsible for catastrophic Aboriginal failures have been a small elite group of Aboriginal people. This group designed and manages the implementation of their policies and has partnered with green billionaire sponsors who have significant media, legal and political influence. They are using the Native Title Act to push their agenda.

Six Indigenous people designed the Act in consultation with Prime Minister, Paul Keating in 1993 without consulting Aboriginal people living in communities and the United Nations has been the driver of collective property rights (reference [1]  p.7), and the preamble of the Native Title Act 1993 (Cmth) refers to the UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights (reference [2] p.25  subsection (a) and (b).

The Uluru Statement mentions it acting in accordance with the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples

The Uluru Statement asserts that First Nations sovereignty was never ceded and coexists with the Crown’s sovereignty today and the basis for it is pursuant to the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

The UN has endorsed the ‘Uluru Statement from the Heart’.

Megan Davis a key person leading the Uluru Statement said:

“A reform proposal could therefore only succeed at Uluru if it:

Does not diminish Aboriginal sovereignty and Torres Strait Islander sovereignty.

Involves substantive, structural reform.

Advances self-determination and the standards established under the United Nations Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

Recognises the status and rights of First Nations.

Tells the truth of history.

Does not foreclose on future advancement.

Does not waste the opportunity of reform.

Provides a mechanism for First Nations agreement-making.

Has the support of First Nations.

Does not interfere with positive legal arrangements” (reference [3], p. 31).

This “Truth telling” does not extend to Bruce Pascoe or his book Dark Emu. Bruce Pascoe believes an example of the West’s superiority is “2007, when the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples by a vote of a hundred and forty-three to four. Who were the four? The US, Canada, New Zealand and Australia: the colonial governments who have most to lose if rights are extended to the indigenous” (reference [4] p. 240).  Prime Minister Rudd adopted the declaration.
