Do you support recognising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples by changing the Constitution or making some other kind of legal change?
What should the change look like?
I'm not really sure. I don't have any skill in this area.
Should we have a statement that acknowledges the First Peoples of Australia?
Yes. This should be in the Constitution.
Where is the best place to put it?
I don't know.
What should the statement say?
Something like the Aboriginals were the First Peoples of Australia & are valued contributors to the beginning of Australian society.
Should the word 'race' be taken out of the Constitution?
Should the Australian Parliament keep the power to make special laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
Do you have any other comments on powers to make laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples?
None that I can think of.
Do you think that a guarantee against racial discrimination should go into the Constitution?
I don't know
If there is not enough support for a guarantee in the Constitution, what other things can we do to stop racial discrimination in national laws?
I'm not sure.
Do you have any other comments on changing the Constitution to stop racial discrimination?
I think the Aboriginal people should be prioritised before any other races that have come to Australia. The Aboriginal people were the first ones here before white man took over & since then there has been millions of other races who've come to Australia
Do you think Indigenous people should have a say when Parliament and government make laws and policies about Indigenous affairs?
Should a new Indigenous group be set up under the Constitution to give advice and make sure Indigenous people have a voice in political decisions that affect them?
Is it worth creating the new group if it can only give advice and does not have the power to block new laws?
I don't know
Do you have any ideas about what the new group would look like?
No, I don't
Should we delete section 25?
