Indigenous Australian's right to self-determination

This petition is awaiting approval by the Avaaz Community
Indigenous Australian's right to self-determination


Why this is important

To empower Indigenous Australians to pursue their sovereign right to self determination, given Australia’s history of 'genocidal acts' and racist policies and practices. The decimation of the original inhabitants the Indigenous population, and subsequent shorte life expectancy, to achieve parity requires a separate voting mechanism for elected Indigenous representation in Parliament, It is in Indigenous peoples best interests that any Referendum regarding Indigenous peoples rights should be voted on seperately by Indigenous peoples and not be dominated by the broader polulation.
All Australians can sign this petition to bring about confidence that Parliament intends to respect Indigenous peoples right to self determination and the right to have Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island peoples represented in parliament for true democracy in Australia.
