JOIN THE DISCUSSION SOVEREIGNTY, THE CONSTITUTION AND CONGRESS
Aboriginal Tent Embassy, Canberra
INVASION DAY 26 January 2013 10.00 am to 3.00 pm
A year ago, at the 40th anniversary of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy, a general commitment was given by the people at the Tent Embassy to advance the sovereign rights of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. Consequently a number often embassies were established in regional parts of Australia in 2012, to express concerns from our people about control over our lives and our futures. The National Congress of Australias First Peoples also participated at the time by arranging a seminar on Sovereignty and Self-Determination.
The role of Congress is to promote the rights of our peoples.
Our members and delegate have determined Sovereignty is a key concern for Congress. Some initial feedback from community suggests that Congress should convene a national discussion on how Sovereign can be progressed in the struggle for Aboriginal rights.
The way forward for 2013 is to be examined at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy on 26 January 2013.
All interested people welcome to participate and contribute positively to this discussion.
