John Howard called Pauline Hanson's comments on the UN treaty as "deranged" a view supported the leader of the opposition Kim Beazley. How hypocritical of John Howard.
Quote: "When the proposal of a treaty was put forward by the Prime Minister (Bob Hawke), Mr Howard rejected it out of hand, arguing that a treaty could only divide, not unite black and white Australians.
"The Liberal and National Parties remain committed to achieving policies which bring Aboriginal people into the mainstream of Australian society and give them equal opportunity to share fully in a common future with all other Australians."
Quote: "Its all very well for leaders of major political parties to speak in the most vituferous language about Pauline Hanson. Its another thing to examine what she said in the Parliament last Tuesday afternoon, June 2nd."
The chairman of the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Commission, Mr Gatjil Djerrkura, will support calls for a referendum of all indigenous Australians on the question of a treaty and possibly a separate Aboriginal government.
In a move set to further inflame tensions between indigenous Australia and the Federal Government, Mr Djerrkura will use his Australia Day address to make the first in a series of sustained attacks against the Government and to call for a treaty.
Quote: "As in Canada, the North in Australia is, for the non-indigenous, residual matter from the which nation-building may occur."
Quote: "All across Canada a variety of peoplesInuit, Algonquian, Dene, Nuu-chah-nulth, and mixed-blood or Metisare building a new country, or rather many new regional units which make up a country."
Quote: "Australia's "other" indigenous people, the Torres Strait Islanders, feel much like Inuittoo often forgotten and relegated to second place. They know, however, that Inuit and Scandinavia' s Sami are also concerned with and taking action on similar marine issues and seeking more regional power."
