“It was fraud to include Aborigines in the 1967 census”

Nuclear Worrier 19.Mar.2012 02:46



Goodooga, northwest NSW, 19 March 12 – An Aboriginal leader has thrown open the possibility of Commonwealth government having “committed a major fraud against the Australian public” in connection with the 1967 referendum that included Aborigines in the national census for the first time.

Michael Anderson, leader of the Euahlayi nation and spokesman for a movement to form a sovereign union of Aboriginal nations, suggests in an open letter to Prime Minister Julia Gillard that still valid British law excluded Aborigines from being counted “because they were independent Peoples as recognised in Pacific Islanders Protection Act 1875”.

Anderson, a lawyer by training, writes in his letter, copied to Coalition leader Tony Abbott and Greens leader, Bob Brown: “Our understanding is that Section 127 of the Australian Constitution: ‘In reckoning the numbers of the people of the Commonwealth, or of a State or other part of the Commonwealth, aboriginal natives shall not be counted.’

“In effect the 1967 referendum was a unilateral attempt by the Commonwealth to fraudulently incorporate Aboriginal people as Australian citizens destined for assimilation, without our free prior and informed consent,” Anderson tells the Prime Minister.

“I draw your attention to the fact that the recent proposal for a referendum in 2013 to, at least, include Aboriginal people in the preamble of the Australian Constitution is yet another attempt by the Commonwealth to fraudulently acquire Aboriginal acquiescence to an illegal occupying colonial power.

“The Aboriginal individuals advocating for inclusion of Aboriginal people in the preamble of the Constitution are committing treason against Aboriginal Peoples.”

Anderson, the last survivor of the four young men who set up the Aboriginal Embassy in Canberra in 1972, is visiting Aboriginal communities across the length and breadth of Australia to promote sovereignty.

About 40 nations in the Murray Darling Basin are already on board.

The letter:

Open letter to PM Julia Gillard 18 March 2012

Dear Prime Minister,

I am writing to seek an answer as to whether the 1967 referendum to amend section 127 of the Constitution was valid.
I call upon the Commonwealth government to provide the written evidentiary proof that the States did in fact refer this matter of Aboriginal Affairs to the Commonwealth, as required under Section 105A of the Australian Constitution; and, if so, were any conditions applied for the referral.
If due process was not followed properly the Commonwealth government has committed a major fraud against the Australian public.
In the case of NSW, it took the Commonwealth and the States until 1975 to divide the responsibility of Aboriginal Affairs between the Commonwealth and the states. Similar arrangements with other States were made at this time.
This is an important consideration because, since the Pacific Islanders Protection Act 1875, it is incumbent on the colonial states to negotiate with Aboriginal Peoples over land acquisition as the colony expanded, but Aboriginal Peoples have been defrauded by the use of superior force to remove them from their lands and waters, resulting in our people becomes displaced Peoples and refugees in this continent.
The second matter the 1967 referendum dealt with was the deceitful and fraudulent method by which they obtained patrimony. There was a legal reason why Aboriginal people were not counted in the census; because they were independent Peoples as recognised in Pacific Islanders Protection Act 1875, in which Aboriginal Peoples were legally identified as having independent sovereignty.
Our understanding is that Section 127 of the Australian Constitution:
‘In reckoning the numbers of the people of the Commonwealth, or of a State or other part of the Commonwealth, aboriginal natives shall not be counted.’
was inserted by the Home Office in London during the drafting of the British Act of parliament which created the Australian Constitution in 1901. Presumably the Home Office was well aware of the power and implications of the Pacific Islanders Protection Act 1875.
In effect the 1967 referendum was a unilateral attempt by the Commonwealth to fraudulently incorporate Aboriginal people as Australian citizens destined for assimilation, without our free prior and informed consent.
I draw your attention to the fact that the recent proposal for a referendum in 2013 to, at least, include Aboriginal people in the preamble of the Australian Constitution is yet another attempt by the Commonwealth to fraudulently acquire Aboriginal acquiescence to an illegal occupying colonial power. The Aboriginal individuals advocating for inclusion of Aboriginal people in the preamble of the Constitution are committing treason against Aboriginal Peoples.
I look forward to receiving the information requested.
Regards
Michael Anderson

The intervention was instituted in 2007 by the conservative Howard Government claiming it was to stop domestic violence and child abuse in indigenous communities. But others like John Pilger claim it was a land grab,
Thanks
