Australia's immigration policy is disastrous, proceeding as if there is no
balance of payment problem, no foreign debt and no geographical or environmental
constraints to population growth. Continued immigration will finally and
irreversibly alter the natural and urban environment, economic viability and
attitudes and culture of our nation.
The people have been consulted on, or given their consent to, the interwoven
policies of immigration and multiculturalism. It is now time for Australians to
demand their democratic rights, reclaim their sovereignty and demand a say in
the future of their nation.
Australians Against Further Immigration want immigration drastically reduced to
zero net. That is, out immigration numbers should merely replace those
permanently leaving Australia each year - historically running between 20,000
and 30,000. At this policy of institutionalised, publicly funded
multiculturalism should be scrapped.
We are a non-racist organisation and attempts to convert the debate to one of
race and emotion is a deliberate ploy to silence critics and avoid the real
issues. We believe in freedom of speech. The philosopher Spinoza said, “In a
free state every man can think what he wants and say what he thinks”. This
should apply here to debates on immigration.
We care about Australia and want to pass our heritage to our children and their
children. We want to preserve our Australian identity. We stress that migrants
already in Australia are welcome, what we are against is further immigration and
the effect this in now having on social harmony.
Our opposition is the pro-immigration lobby comprised of big business including
the media, the ethnic lobby, churches, misguided humanitarians and both sides of
politics. It is our own successive governments inflicting these policies on us
and they, not the individual migrant, should bear the blame.
We are concerned about the effect of immigration and multiculturalism on this
country where as the pro-immigration lobby is only concerned for the migrant or
their own interests.

We have a clear choice of accepting increasing immigration with the consequent
exploitation of this land and a falling standard of living and quality of life,
living in crowded, polluted, high density cities, with over-taxed recreational
areas and intercommunal tensions and feeling like strangers in our own country.
The economic consequences of an increasing foreign debt, foreign ownership and
undesirable, unsustainable economic expansion, will destroy any chance of
maintaining the best features of Australian life as we know it. And, as migrant
numbers increase, there will be an escalating push for higher migrant intake
which eventually will be unstoppable.
Stoping mass immigration and attempting to live in harmony with our fragile
environment, creating an economically and environmental sound, self reliant and
self sustaining community, maintaining our quality of life and handing to the
next generation a country to be cherished, and free from problems of over

- The Indigenous Peoples Movement works to acquire legal protection and works to raise awareness towards the indigenous peoples’ causes globally. Indigenous peoples are generally defined as individuals who belong to a highly conservative, culturally and linguistically different non-dominant social group,—distinct from the modernly dominant society—hoping to maintain that separation with the superior culture. In addition, their cultures and traditional practices have been harmed over the centuries—complications arising from the European colonial era; still, many negative affections remain influencing their economic situations in the modern century....

- Police discretion is the power to make a decision on a police officer’s own judgement. These decisions can range from how serious they think a domestic violence complaint is or if they should pursue a minor offence such as racism toward themselves. The ability to make decisions like these leaves a clear indicator as to why Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples are over represented in the Australian criminal justice system. Many factors related to discretionary decision making are responsible for this representation.... [tags: Indigenous Australians, Indigenous peoples]

- Consequently, after colonisation the meaning of land rights for Indigenous Australians changed. Land rights now referred to the continual legal exertion to reclaim ownership of the land and waters that was called home prior to British colonisation (Creative Spirits, 2011). Australian Museum (2015) and Creative Spirits (2011) acknowledge the struggle to gain legal recognition and ownership of Indigenous land is difficult and expensive. Furthermore, the history behind the struggle in earlier years often resulted in violence as Indigenous Australians were dispossessed of their land (Australian Museum, 2015)....

- Indigenous Australians are defined as inhabitants of the land prior to colonization of Australia (Mooney, 2013). For the purpose of this paper indigenous Australians health and leisure will be further explored. Leisure and health are important components an individual must maintain through out their life. Whether an individual participates in leisure is based on mental, social, physical and environmental factors. These factors may be positive influences or negative influences on the group. The health of an individual is based on physiology, unfortunately for indigenous Australians there are particular diseases, which are more commonly diagnosed....

- ‘Aboriginal Australians are arguably one of the most traumatised people in the world’ (Nadew, 2012, p.2). The forcible removal of Australian Indigenous children from their families during the 1900’s became official government policy until 1969; the children who were taken away are now known as the ‘Stolen Generations’. A loss of cultural affiliation, an entrenched mistrust and anger towards non-Indigenous peoples, a loss of spirituality and connection to ancestors, substance and alcohol abuse and mental illness (Korff, 2015) are a mere few effects that ‘continue to resound through generations of Aboriginal families’ (Dudgeon & Hirvonen, 2014)....

- Australia prides itself on its success as a colonial settlement to independent nation state. While there are numerous points in Australian history that are noted positively and have led to the creation of a distinct and proud culture, there are issues which remain; the treatment of Aboriginal Australians, both in the colonial and post-colonial time frames, has been a negative imprint on Australian history which many times has tried to be overlooked. Inaccurate or biased historical documentation hinders the nation’s ability to progress and not acknowledging these issues leaves Australia in a state where it is possible to repeat transgressions and ultimately unable...

- Aboriginal Australians have survived in a harsh environment for thousands of years, as a result of this, there are many health beliefs that are unique to this group of people. When asked, up to 22% of aboriginals say that they have used a plant, known as bush medicine in the culture, to treat an illness (Patricks, 1999). This is a significant number, and has led to interesting medical beliefs because modern medicine is often incorporated with bush medicine within this culture. This civilization has historically been dependent with plants found in the local rainforests for survival and healing from health issues, and the culture still has an important relationship with plants today....

- Immigration in the U.S. While immigration has played an important role in the building and formation of America, new federal laws have resulted in mass immigration. “America was primarily founded on immigrants, however, immigration must be controlled legally, and immigrants should be treated equally despite what country they come from. America has the most liberal laws towards immigrants than any other country.” Luis Barker, Chief Patrol Agent In-Charge, US Border Patrol, El Paso, TX. Throughout history, Congress has enacted laws and has had to amend them to control the flow of both legal and illegal migration to the United States....

- Prior to 1882, there were not any formal acts that controlled immigration. The Act of 1875 merely prohibited the importation of women for purposes of prostitution and the immigration of aliens "who are undergoing conviction in their own country for felonious crimes, other than political..." The Act of 1882 levied a head tax of fifty cents "for every passenger not a citizen of the United States," and forbade the landing of convicts, lunatics, idiots, or of "any person unable to take care of himself or herself without becoming a public charge." The Act of 1885 blocked the immigration of aliens under contract to labor.... [tags: Immigration ]
