    All 3 levels of government Local, State and Federal have a hidden agenda to take over our country and move away from Aboriginal Cultural practices and to live like white fullars and forget the old ways it is still happening in this day and age. Aboriginal people from all over Australia must stop this together, no matter where we are from QLD, NSW, SA, VIC, TAS, WA and supporting our brothers and sisters in NT, we must take a stand or they will take and consume everything.

    Come on Australia face the facts, institutionlised racism through legislation to justify landgrabbing and assimilation is nothing new just cause it called intervention in 2008 makes no difference-it still the same old racist penal colony.

    To be a country under international and british law let alone Lore requires permission of 1st Nations something that has never occurred

    The only gap needed to close is the gap between Australia and rest of the planet, the fact is you are the last penal colony left on the planet, so close the gap(s) between Australia and rest of the world in relation to the rights and status of 1st Nations people in Australia-ONLY THEN WILL ANY IMPROVEMENTS IN RELATION TO WHOLISTIC HEALTH OF THE 1ST NATIONS OF THIS LAND BECOMING COMPARABLE TO OTHER 1ST NATIONS ON THE PLANET.
    Come on K Rudd stop being a Dud by implementing and expanding the late Mr Cowards racist bigoted policies. 2009 TIME FOR AUSTRALIA TO GROW UP!

    Your video highlights the strange shocking fact, that to change the world, maybe we all need to go on strike against accepting handouts from the government, that were defined by bankers and other economists, within the false economy that forgot to love the land. But land is life, and nobody lives while one or two of us are not failing to remember to love land.

    Hello there.just wanted to say that you are such an inspiration to me.
    We walked from Adelaide to uluru in 2007 see sacred life walk 2007 {sorry about all the crap porn spam on our web site but we no longer have a monitor to block it or clean it up}with the hope of getting our people all to walk off from all around Australia and all sit down together that would really make this government think hey theyb would be saying hey where are these black people and we would be all sitting down together planning our own business together.And for the healing of the land and the people.
