      Aboriginal Provisional Government:
      Constitutional reform: assimilation or self determination

      26 Jan 12: "The Australian constitution
      The constitution is both a source and a limitation of power.
      It establishes Federal and State legislatures and limits
      each government to stay in its own yard. It establishes the
      High Court to decide disputes between bickering
      governments. The constitution is the political manifesto of
      the nation. It is by virtue of the potency of the
      constitution that recognition of Aboriginal rights must be
      so carefully approached: crafting a constitution that deals
      with dispossession, and political and cultural rights for
      Aboriginal people while acknowledging the real purpose for
      the existence of the constitution requires some intense
      deliberation. ... Michael Mansell, Secretary 26th January 2012"

      6 Jun 13: "Melbourne Conversations
      - Constitutional Recognition of Australia's first peoples:
      Sell out or stepping stone?

      The Constitution is considered out of date with the modern
      reality of Australia; it doesn't recognise Indigenous
      peoples and it's discriminatory. In the spirit of
      reconciliation, leading Indigenous and non-Indigenous
      public commentators discuss the suggested constitutional
      changes recommended by the "Expert Panel" and the related
      issues of land rights and sovereignty.
      Join the conversation and have your say"
