Petition for action on Treaties

Take Action

ANTaR believes that as Australians, all of us need to understand, as best we can, what Treaties are, why they are important, what they might come to represent and where they might lead us together as reconciled peoples.


Nearly 250 years since James Cook landed at Botany Bay in 1770 with instructions from the British Crown to annex Australia with the ‘Consent of the Natives’, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples from across Australia have never given consent or ceded their sovereignty.

Finally, we are seeing state and territory governments take the tentative steps towards negotiating agreements with the First Nations peoples of their jurisdictions.

Join with ANTaR in calling on the Federal Parliament to step up and take responsibility for Australia’s inevitable process of treaty, centuries after it should have happened.

As the only remaining Western colonising state to have failed to treat with the First Nations of the land, Australia is exceptional for the wrong reason.
