That the New Way Summit demands that Minister Macklin should resign from her position as Minister and replaced by an Aboriginal person selected by Aboriginal people. We call for the resignation of any other person that holds an Aboriginal position and is not acting in the best interest of the people they represent. If these people perceive that they are acting in the best interest of our peoples then they need to demonstrate this to us.

That the New Way Summit agree that the handpicked representatives on the AUA, Langton, Mundine etc must be shamed. As they themselves are not recognising our rights as Aboriginal people under the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. We must have the right to pick our own representatives.

NOT PASSED, NEEDS TO BE REWRITTEN – MOVED TO THE NEXT MEETING
