Bill Shorten joins call for constitutional convention Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Sunday, 21 December 2014

The Leader of the Opposition, Mr Bill Shorten, has called for a constitutional convention to consider the issue of the constitutional recognition of the indigenous people.  ACM has also called for a convention.

Image

Speaking along with the prime minister at the inaugural dinner of RECOGNISE on 11 December 2014, he said that the  referendum question must involve the complete representative and empowered participation of our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander brothers and sisters.

''And this is where the idea of a constitutional convention offers one important, constructive way to ensure that more voices are heard.

"And perhaps building upon what we’ve heard, I can suggest the establishment of a formal referendum council to help guide the convention’s important deliberations, to make sure that the convention isn’t captured by one interest or another and provide that broader community level leadership.''

PM explains his call to ACM Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Sunday, 21 December 2014

Referring to his Neville Bonner Oration to the 15th ACM National Conference, Prime Minister Tony Abbott has told supporters of RECOGNISE, the movement for the constitutional  recognition  of the indigenous people, that for a referendum to succeed there should be no opposition from any group of substance.

Image 

Addressing  the recent RECOGNISE inaugural dinner, he said he had invited his ''former colleagues at Australians for Constitutional Monarchy... to suspend their scepticism.'' 

''And I told them that it was impossible to cherish every single clause of a constitution, except the provision to change it."

" Tonight,'' he continued, '' I say to my friends here at RECOGNISE, we have to temper our ambitions, because nothing would set back the cause of our country and the rightful place of Aboriginal people at its heart, than a referendum that failed.'' 

ACM's National Convenor, Professor David Flint, responded to the Prime Minister by proposing that the people be involved from the beginning. This would be by following the Corowa process which involved a convention and which was the way we federated. He suggested other current burning constitutional issues be referred to the convention. This would include restoring the federation.

The text of the Prime Minister's speech follows.

IN CINEMAS: When The Queen Came to Town Print E-mail
Written by ACM   
Thursday, 04 December 2014

When The Queen Came to Town is an affectionate celebration of the 60th anniversary of the 1954 Royal Tour to Australia by the newly Crowned Queen Elizabeth II. The film uses archival footage from the tour, interviews with Australians with memories of the Queen's visit and narration by Australian legends Bert Newtown and Lorraine Bayly to bring this wonderful story to life. 

Image

As many supporters will be aware, the tour was the largest event ever to be staged in Australia. For 60 days, the young Queen traversed the length and breadth of the land, visiting more than 60 country towns and making more than 100 speeches. Five million cucumber sandwiches, 10 million scones and 25 million cups of tea later, an astonishing three quarters of the Australian population had turned out to see their Monarch.

For a glimpse of the film, the documentary’s trailer can be accessed here:

The film has opened in selected cinemas across Australia.
