Facebook brings word that the Tent Embassy in front of Old Parliament House is celebrating its 40th birthday next Australia Day.

Indigenous elders invite all Aboriginal people, supporters and other members of the general public, to come together at the ‘Aboriginal Tent Embassy’ site, on Thursday 26th January 2012, to celebrate “SOVEREIGNTY DAY” and be part of the Sacred Fire Ceremonial Gathering that will marks 40 years since the first protest on the site.

The ‘Federation of Aboriginal Sovereign Nations’ will be convening on Thursday 26th January 2012 where the focus of discussions will center around Sovereignty Issues.

After Sovereignty Business has been attended to by the ‘Federation of Aboriginal Sovereign Nations’ we will have a big Sovereignty Corroboree, over the rest of the weekend.

One Mob Represents Aboriginal people of Australia and a call to stand united as one.
One Voice Stands for a free Aboriginal Voice.

There is no us and them only we. And we all are a part of Australia. We are together now.

Exactly, which is why I formly believe we need more than good intentions – we need to help Aborigines to get out of the poverty cycle.

This is true, was it Jefferson

I think Jim’s nailed it.

Thankyou. I’m particularly proud of that piece of work.

If I’d managed to wedge something in about Climate Change being a massive conspiracy of epic proportions, I could probably get it featured on Andrew Bolt’s blog.
