Australians may soon be asked to decide on a referendum to recognise Aborigines in the Australian Constitution.

The Australian Government is spending many millions of dollars on a propaganda campaign run by Reconciliation Australia and an off-shoot Recognise that places before Australians very risky and radical proposals, as if they are sensible and benign. They are not.

Indeed, the Abbott Government does not believe in the proposals. Further, they were raised under the Gillard Government, and even then disowned. For more, read our book, Recognise What?

It is important to understand that any recognition in the Constitution is risky. The bloggers, gathered on this site, can better inform the debate, and you the reader can join in. Please share your views, but remember, comments will be moderated, so please exercise restraint.
