Aboriginal Justice

Australia always was and always will be Aboriginal land.

Yet we are the only Commonwealth nation in the world that does not have a treaty with its First Peoples. It‘s time for the progressive state of Victoria to lead the way in addressing this great injustice.

As Victorians, we have the opportunity to set the bar for Treaties in Australia.

The Victorian Government has committed to a process of developing Treaties; but this process has not reflected true self-determination or honoured sovereign peoples of this land – the hundreds of Clans with their own languages, traditions, ancestors, law/lore and land. Clans and their Elders – who are a crucial part of Aboriginal law – have been sidelined in this process in favour of government appointed officials.

Will you join us in calling for Clan-based Treaties in Victoria?
