January 26th – NT Aboriginal Leaders Common Sense and the TRUTH behind the Date.

With all the ridiculous talk coming out of the politically left mainstream media and the Aboriginal puppets that the agenda-driven found living in the inner cities and decided to use for their own political means, it’s interesting to see a refreshing dose of common sense that proves AUSTRALIANS WILL NOT BE DIVIDED!!


Jacinta Nampijinpa Price published this Facebook status following the numerous politically motivated flag-burning protests that took place across Australia’s capital cities during what should have been Australia Day celebrations:

“I keep hearing that Aboriginal people want to change the date of Australia Day. Well what about the aboriginal people who don’t want to change the date? Do we not count because our opinion differs? And why aren’t these people as concerned about the aboriginal people affected by domestic violence, alcohol and drug abuse? Why aren’t the marches for murdered Aboriginal women as big as the marches occurring today? 

Yes let’s learn about our past and our history but how is changing the date going to do a thing for the aboriginal women dying at the hands of aboriginal men, the aboriginal children who miss out on school and an education and the aboriginal children who are living in dysfunctional circumstances? I can bet you London to a brick they are not concerned with a date change. It is the aboriginal middle class who are concerned about date changes and those pushing the agenda come from privilege themselves in comparison to the aboriginal people who are the countries most marginalised. But let’s all make a huge deal out of this, an even bigger deal out of this than actually saving the lives of aboriginal people who are living among us now!

I’m pretty sure if we are pressured enough to change the date then there will be something else for the Aboriginal middle class activists and guilt ridden white fellas to be offended about. After all has saying ‘sorry’ stopped domestic violence and dysfunction? Has saying ‘sorry’ saved an Aboriginal life? I know it did absolutely nothing for me but most token symbolism does very little for me because in my opinion only hard work, responsibility and real action can make real change.

The future is far more important to me than our past. Our future is where we should be focussed so that the most marginalised Aboriginal people of this country whose first language is usually not English, who do not have access to media, whose lives are affected at alarming rates by family violence can have the same opportunities as those who claim to feel pain because a country celebrates how lucky we are on a date that marks the arrival of the first fleet.

People want to call it a day of mourning. Well us Aboriginal people have become professional mourners. We are constantly in a state of mourning it seems. So why do we want to stay in such a state I ask? What do we have to benefit from being in a constant state of mourning? Mourning does not give us freedom, it imprisons us and I have had enough. I bury my family far too regularly and that is all the mourning I can handle. 

I want for everyone in this country to have opportunity, I want to pull my people out of the crippling state of mourning and I don’t want anyone to feel guilty or bad for feeling joy and celebrating a country we love!

The future is ours to make the best of and this will only be done if we do it together!”


Many people are unaware of the reason that “Australia Day” is celebrated on the 26th January each year, here is a quick run down:

On 21 January 1788, after arriving at Botany Bay, Governor Arthur Phillip took a longboat and two cutters up the coast to examine Cook’s Port Jackson. Phillip first stayed over night at Camp Cove, then moved down the harbour, landing at Sydney Cove and then Manly Cove before returning to Botany Bay on the afternoon of 24 January. Phillip returned to Sydney Cove in HM Armed Tender Supply on 26 January 1788, where he established the first colony in Australia, later to become the city of Sydney.
