Led by the Aboriginal Support Group – Manly, Warringah, Pittwater

Dear Supporters,

A friendly reminder that Wednesday is the day we reconnect with the Uluru Statement together. You can use the links below to join in a Zoom meeting at 7pm or if you can’t then, because of other commitments, read it by yourself but knowing other people are also doing that.  We are building a people’s movement responding to the invitation from the First Nation’s Elders. I am so grateful to be journeying with you.

Below are just some of the reasons why doing so is important.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart is :

  • A living document given to the people of Australia to facilitate greater repair of our nation
  • It speaks of structural reform for First Nations People
  • Truth telling to really see the full history of the lands we live on
  • Makurata, resolutions and  agreements or treaty making
  • Cultural wisdom, gifts and generosity
  • Responsibilities of those who call Australia home

Reading it / hearing it keeps us engaged with First Nations people and our collective story despite all the other challenges around us, What happens in Australia otherwise is that First Nations people and their concerns and voices are pushed down the bottom of news and interest.

Please share the link as you feel.

Land Rights at Risk, again? – Virtual Building Bridges @ Online
Oct 27 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Jon Altman will speak about Land Rights at Risk, again? Evaluation of the Economic Empowerment Bill

About this event

Minister Wyatt is in the process of implementing what he terms the most comprehensive reforms to the NT Land Rights Act since its enactment in 1976. This Act is the most powerful expression of land rights in Australia. However, to date there has been little debate either in the Indigenous, academic, or broader public domains about these amendments. The last time such significant reforms were proposed in 1998 there was an overwhelming backlash asking whether Land Rights were at Risk? Those reforms were stymied. There have been amendments since, especially in 2006 when 99-year township leasing was introduced, but they have been hotly contested and attracted considerable public attention. The difference today is that the reform package to ‘modernise’ the Land Rights Act has been ‘co-designed’ with strong support from the four NT Aboriginal land councils. The centrepiece of the Economic Empowerment Bill is the proposed transfer of control of the Aboriginals Benefit Account’s investment and granting functions to a new authority, the NT Aboriginal Investment Corporation, with considerable power and funding. Other reforms focus on township leasing and exploration and mining processes.

Please join this free online event at https://amnestyau.zoom.us/j/92677666714 (Meeting ID: 926 7766 6714)

In this talk Jon Altman wants to raise critically-important questions about the amendments that have had bipartisan (Coalition and ALP) parliamentary support and so little parliamentary scrutiny; and analyse what dangers might lurk behind these proposals that are supposed to economically empower Aboriginal landowners in the NT; and to consider how they might be improved—or if they should be opposed?

Speaker:

Jon Altman, emeritus professor at ANU and adjunct professor at UTS Jumbunna Institute for Indigenous Education and Research

Jon Altman is an activist and academic committed to social justice who has worked with Indigenous communities and organisations in the NT for over 40 years; he is a concerned Australian and non-executive director of several not-for-profits including Original Power, the Karrkad-Kanjdji Trust and the Arena Foundation. Much of Jon’s research has focused on the workings of land rights and native title systems, including in their interactions with extractive industries. Way back in 1984 Jon chaired an independent review for the Australian government of the Aboriginals Benefit Account that the current reforms partially address 37 years on. In 1999 he co-edited the volume Land Rights at Risk? Evaluations of the Reeves Report that inspires the title for this talk.

Embracing Cultural Diversity in Australia – Kep Enderby Memorial Lecture @ Online Event
Oct 29 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Event description

The inclusion of more voices in Australian discussions around race relations has increased our understanding while challenging outdated assumptions. Notions of colour blindness and assimilationism are gradually giving way to a more open multiculturalism that embraces diversity and truth-telling about the experiences of First Nations peoples. But there is resistance. For many Australians the complexities of identity and belonging remain and embracing a rich cultural heritage within contemporary Australia is not always easy or even possible.

The Kep Enderby Memorial Lecture is an annual public event held by the Australian Human Rights Commission to honour the memory of the Hon. Kep Enderby QC (1926-2015), who as Attorney-General introduced the Racial Discrimination Bill to parliament in 1975. Each year, the Lecture advances public understanding and debate about the Racial Discrimination Act 1975, racism and race relations.

The lecture, which is sponsored by the EU Delegation to Australia, will be delivered via Zoom. Auslan interpretation and live captioning will be available. The lecture will be presented by acclaimed writer Alice Pung, and will be followed by a panel discussion to reflect on her theme:

Register here for your free ticket

The panel:

Alice Pung is an award-winning author, journalist, lawyer and educator. Her novels explore themes of race and cultural identity, and have been set as texts in schools and universities throughout Australia and overseas. Alice is a frequent contributor to the Monthly, Good Weekend and Age, and was awarded the Sydney Morning Herald’s Young Novelist of the Year in 2015. Her work as a lawyer reflects a strong interest in human rights, and Alice has spoken on the ABC’s Big Ideas program against bigotry and proposed changes to the Racial Discrimination Act.

Several young Australians from diverse backgrounds will join Alice for the panel discussion following her lecture. They will include:

Kupakwashe Matangira is an activist, social entrepreneur, Global Voices policy fellow and youth rights practitioner for Save The Children. Driven by her passion for human rights and social justice, Kupa believes in the power of young people to create change and be a positive voice in Australian and world affairs. Kupa’s study of politics, philosophy and economics supports her efforts to address pressing social issues and advance human rights.

Zaahir Edries is a South African-born, Australian human rights lawyer, community advocate, writer and media commentator. He has spoken widely on issues around diversity, inclusion, migrant settlement, and the Muslim experience in Australia. He is the General Counsel of GetUp, an Executive Consultant for the Online Progressive Engagement Network, and was formerly the President and a founding member of the Muslim Legal Network NSW.  Zaahir has a particular interest in the use of legislative instruments to curtail civil liberties and the disproportionate impact on marginalised communities.

Delivered over three half-days exclusively via EventCast, an award-winning, immersive and interactive event platform, the Convention will be a vibrant and historic landmark event in Australia’s reconciliation journey.

You will be able to connect with audiences and organisations from across Australia, interact during panels, share your reconciliation stories, and more – all from the comfort of your own home or workplace.

2021 marks twenty years of Reconciliation Australia and almost three decades of the Australian formal reconciliation process.

In 2021, reconciliation is more than just raising awareness and knowledge. Join us and this ever-growing community of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and non-Indigenous Australians to discuss, learn and recommit to the next steps in our reconciliation journey as we urge the reconciliation movement towards braver and more impactful action.

The program will run over three days between 11:30am – 4:30pm.

Self-Determination – Virtual Building Bridges @ Online
Nov 24 @ 7:30 pm – 8:30 pm
Yingiya Mark Guyula MLA – A Liya Dhalinymirr leader of the Djambarrpuyngu people, will speak about Self-Determination

About this event

Yiŋiya Mark Guyula was elected to the NT Parliament in 2016 as an Independent Member. He has spoken out strongly against the NT Intervention and Stronger Futures for many years.

During his time in Parliament, Yiŋiya has challenged the Government to create inclusive laws and policies that recognise Aboriginal law and culture.

In 2021, there is still very little recognition of Yolŋu governance and authority by outside institutions and this is what Yiŋiya is striving for – a partnership and treaty with Government that respects the authority of Aboriginal nations on their country.

SNAICC – National Voice for Our Children Conference 2021 @ Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Centre
Dec 6 @ 9:00 am – Dec 9 @ 5:00 pm

The conference is hosted by SNAICC – National Voice for our Children. SNAICC is the national non-government peak body in Australia representing the interest of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

A biennial event, every two years, this conference is convened to assist with the achievement of the SNAICC vision: An Australian society in which our communities are empowered to determine their own future; where the rights of our children, young people and families are protected; where our cultural identity and achievements are valued; and our children and families have access to culturally appropriate services.

We look forward to again gathering with our delegates and speakers from around the country to discuss our challenges and share our knowledge and experiences in raising happy, healthy and confident children in our communities.

A must attend conference for anyone working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children and family services – we hope you can join us.

Given the continued uncertainty with the pandemic, the SNAICC team has come to the decision to postpone the 9th SNAICC National Conference to
6 – 9 December 2021.

While it is disappointing to have to reschedule, the overwhelming feedback from our members is that we want to come together on Yugambeh Country in person. Our priority is to make it happen, as we pride ourselves on being one of the biggest conferences to bring together communities from across the country.

We understand it may not be possible for everyone to be able to attend in person, and so our program will continue to be available in an online format, as well as face-to-face. Both options will provide access to keynote presentations, panel discussions, concurrent session presentations, as well as networking opportunities.

  • It speaks of structural reform for First Nations People
  • Truth telling to really see the full history of the lands we live on
  • Makurata, resolutions and  agreements or treaty making
  • Cultural wisdom, gifts and generosity
  • Responsibilities of those who call Australia home

Reading it / hearing it keeps us engaged with First Nations people and our collective story despite all the other challenges around us, What happens in Australia otherwise is that First Nations people and their concerns and voices are pushed down the bottom of news and interest.
