Aboriginals are already included in the Constitution

The Labor government is attempting to fool people into voting for an unelected group of people claiming to be ‘original people’. But, who is this shadowy group? We have looked into them and found the group is actually a registered corporation.

The misinformation being published by the mainstream media, backed by the communist-inspired government, is clouding a very simple question:

The TRUTH is, our Constitutional Preamble begins with the words, “WHEREAS the people….”. This means, that ALL people of Australia are bound to the Constitution, and they are further included by Clause 5, which states, “

Are Aboriginals excluded from the Commonwealth of Australia, or not?

  1. This Act, and all laws made by the Parliament of the Commonwealth under the
    Constitution, shall be binding on the courts, judges, and people of every State and of
    every part of the Commonwealth, notwithstanding anything in the laws of any State;

Therefore, this attempt by the Labor government to hand over total power to a small group of racists (let’s face it, that’s what this is all about), to determine how we “white invaders” (never mind the yellow or brown invaders!!!) live our lives according to a set of rules set by this shadowy group of people claiming to be blacks is a complete waste of time and money.

If you love our country, and you want everyone to continue living as free members of the Commonwealth of Australia, regardless of race, colour or creed, then VOTE NO!

The National Archives of Australia website explains the referendum that finally allowed our aboriginal brothers and sisters to vote. See this page: The 1967 Referendum | naa.gov.au

It’s important to note that our founding fathers excluded Aboriginals from participating in voting because they realized that educated Aboriginals in those days were very rare. But as Australia grew and education was made universally accessible, it became clear that things had to change. Therefore, the NAA website explains the background to changes to the law that finally allowed Aborigines to vote.

On 27 May 1967 a Federal referendum was held. The first question, referred to as the ‘nexus question’, was an attempt to alter the balance of numbers in the Senate and the House of Representatives. The second question was to determine whether two references in the Australian Constitution, which discriminated against Aboriginal people, should be removed. This page addresses the second question.

The sections of the Constitution under scrutiny were:

51. The Parliament shall, subject to this Constitution, have power to make laws for the peace, order, and good government of the Commonwealth with respect to:-
…(xxvi) The people of any race, other than the aboriginal people in any State, for whom it is necessary to make special laws.

127. In reckoning the numbers of the people of the Commonwealth, or of a State or other part of the Commonwealth, aboriginal natives should not be counted.

Quote from the Commonwealth of Australia Constitution Act 1900/1

The removal of the words ‘… other than the aboriginal people in any State…‘ in section 51(xxvi) and the whole of section 127 were considered by many to be representative of the prevailing movement for political change within Indigenous affairs.

As a result of the political climate, this referendum saw the highest YES vote ever recorded in a Federal referendum, with 90.77 per cent voting for change.

It is interesting to note that because the majority of parliamentarians supported the proposed amendment, a NO case was never formulated for presentation as part of the referendum campaign. Copies of the YES case can be located on files identified below.

The Constitution was changed, giving formal effect to the referendum result, by the Constitution Alteration (Aboriginals) 1967 (Act No 55 of 1967), which received assent on 10 August 1967.

The right to vote

The 1967 referendum did not give Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples the right to vote. This right had been legislated for Commonwealth elections in 1962, with the last State to provide Indigenous enfranchisement being Queensland in 1965.

Records relating to the referendum

The National Archives in Canberra holds a range of records relating to the 1967 Referendum created by the government agencies that played key roles in events surrounding the referendum. These include:

  • records documenting Cabinet’s discussion of the so-called ‘Aboriginal question’ from as early as 1962 and its inclusion in a referendum question
  • records of the Prime Minister’s Department and Attorney-General’s Department, which detail the legislative and policy considerations arising from the government decision to put the referendum, and then to implement the result
  • records of the Chief Electoral Office, which document the conduct of the referendum.
