We are motivated to remove the disconnection between democratic values and the conditions people live under. There are too many powerful people acting for their interests to the detriment of others. We are motivated by egalitarianism, fairness, justice, promoting citizen participation in local, state, and federal governments.
Our amazing team of volunteers are committed to service. We take our aspirations and turn them into pragmatic action. If you are interested, please contact us for more information.
We aim to expose the control of the elite Aboriginal leadership and the criminals who have been and continue to be obstructive to our vision of a united Australia.
I want to share this with you: You know stars have always been integral to ancient cultures and have been especially useful for navigation. Our people gazed at the stars to make sense of the reason for human existence. I wish to acknowledge my mother for sharing this story with me. A long time ago when the world was formed, Birrugan was an ancestral hero. He was a man who could transgress into a Magpie goose. He was known to live between species and he was one powerful creator of the landscape. At the time of creation, species and humans were mixed in a primeval soup. It was the ancestral heroes who were able to separate it. All humans are made of the same stuff.
Birrugan travelled to the coast and created islands, he traveled from Nambucca Heads to Seal Rocks along the beaches. Seal Rocks is our most important site. It is a Nature Reserve located 32 kilometers south of the entrance to Forster on the NSW lower north coast. The Seal Rocks Nature Reserve consists of two exposed low lying rocks less than one hectare in size. The beaches were our highways and this can only able be translated as a dreaming track. (I remind everyone the word dreaming has been widely misused). It has been the journey taken yearly by local tribes for thousands of years. He met people on the way including a young woman who indicated she would like to be his wife using a digging stick. The story shares the fact he was a good hunter and fighter and he protected his family. He possessed the qualities required to be a good husband. He took her as his wife and her sister as their companion. This is important. She is with him but she has a family who needs to be looked after.
At Seal Rocks, they ascend into the sky and form the Southern Cross constellation which lies one third of the way between the equator and the southern celestial pole. Its stars vary in brightness, one of the first magnitude, two of the second magnitude and one of the third magnitude. The neighbouring stars Alpha and Beta Centauri are known as the Pointers. The Southern Cross has been an ancient teaching tool and it involves many creation stories. One is marriage law. Marriage is not a given because one needs to be fit for the responsibility, it had to be earned and it is one reason explaining the fact we do not always get what we want. It feeds the gift giving aspects of our culture and it has become a paradigm for proper marriage which has been enacted within the Birrugan story. Marriage is a gift. I am inspired by the fact the Southern Cross constellation is inscribed on our Australian flag.
Recently I have been contemplating Australian values which I know can be applied pragmatically to Aboriginal people. Clearly the current Aboriginal funding model has failed my people. If it fails one group, it fails all Australians. I also understand one efficient way to make a difference, is to encourage electors to make their vote count which is not easy in our complex preferential voting system. I am committed to ending the manipulative and elite political agenda which have been polluting Aboriginal communities and taking advantage of my people and their vulnerable natures. I am committed to encouraging networks led by Australians, especially those with an Aboriginal background, to go into Aboriginal communities and ensure democracy is taught, understood and practised. I want to encourage and support political participation, community involvement, knowledge sharing and engagement in representative governments which place Australian interests first. These programs are for all Australians. It will focus on Aboriginal communities in the first instance but it has not been exclusively designed for them. Many Australians do not know the relevance of their voting power because our complicated preferential system has so often failed them. I aim to instigate radical Aboriginal funding reforms, designed to ensure Aboriginal people are given the opportunity to purchase a home, own land and participate in outcomes with the power to generate economic independence and healthy lifestyles. The time is ripe.
