why has it taken so many years to actually start worrying about what happened to the aboriginals all those years ago
When Australia day was declared a national holiday back when ever where was this arguement.
Changing us to a republic is not going to change when we was colinised or wether people see this as an invasion to aboriginals
I dont think the brits came in 1788 and said lets kill everyone that stands in front of us , aggrevation starts from both sides who ever took the first pot shot..
changing dates is not fixing the problem if it was then it would be an easy fix...
Warren Mundine an aborigional leader is pleading for this disgraceful Arguement on Australia Day
These are his words
“It irritates me that every time it comes up, every year, you get the same old people coming out and arguing the same old cases, trying to divide the country when we should be actually trying to work together.”
You know he is absolutely right on this matter
does it really matter if the date is 26 of janruary when we celebrate the day it all should be inclusive in which i think it is in our lives today.
The greens are fuelling this for there own agenda when many aborigional leaders are not seeking this attention
by changing the course we are dividing the nation which includes all forms of life in Australia and do we really want that.
I would much rather see us as a nation and start supportting the aborigional community...
as i said people dont want to lose the holiday they get but they want this change becuase of 1 party fuelling a fight that even Aborigional leaders do not want to seek change in date
if you want a nation of divide i think changing date is whats going to happen
but i also think Australia day can be all inclussive we we all celebrate as one irregardless of what happen 200 odd years back
