Aborigines want you to pay them rent on your home for evermore, on top of an annual $35 billion government handout

Momentum is building for a campaign that would call on Australian property owners to pay a percentage of their income to traditional land owners out of respect for their ancestral land claims.
The scheme, Pay the Rent, would work as a voluntary weekly payment to a body led by Aboriginal elders and managed without interference from the government.

The program has been operating quietly in Victoria, with veteran Aboriginal rights activist from Melbourne Robbie Thorpe – who organised a similar scheme in Fitzroy in the 1990s – suggesting non-Indigenous Australians give up one per cent of their weekly wage.

Decisions about the distribution of money paid into this fund will be made exclusively by a Sovereign Body, composed of Aboriginal people from a range of clans and nations,” the Pay The Rent website states.

and

This initiative operates on the understanding that Aboriginal people should have control of any rent received.

Paying the Rent is about non-Indigenous people honouring the Sovereignty of Aboriginal people; it is a somewhat more just way of living on this stolen land,” the scheme states on its website.”

Cara Peek, a Yawuru/Bunuba woman and lawyer who co-founded Cultural IQ, an organisation providing culturally appropriate training in Australian businesses, said Australia was ready to have conversations about financial reparation.

“People are often looking to find a way to support Indigenous communities and acknowledge the historical nature of our lived experiences as first peoples,” Ms Peek told news.com.au.

“A Pay the Rent scheme is also quite poignant in that owning property is a privilege in this country, and as much as people may struggle with mortgages, many people can’t even get a mortgage or bank loan. That is the case for many Indigenous Australians.”

and

“In response to an common argument that non-Indigenous Australians had just as much right to land because they were born in Australia, Ms Peek strongly suggested education as the answer.

“If you can afford property, you are well above in terms of privilege and opportunity than most Indigenous Australians,” she said, describing it a “moot point”.

“If you want to know why you should consider that [paying the rent] then you need to educate yourself.”

Ms Peek suggested the Cultural IQ educational program she co-founded with her sister and that is set to launch on January 26.

“That helps people understand and unpack their cultural bias and where they’ve come from, and also how to meet first peoples in the middle,” she said.

Editor: The Aboriginal industry gets $35 billion from the federal government every year, and now they want you to pay them rent on your land for which you worked for a lifetime.

The vast majority of blackfellas sit on their arses for most of their lives collecting money to do so and still they want more. Tell the sycophantic Labor PM Albanese NO. The militant Murris should remember they would not exist in any capacity if the Japs had got into Australia. They should shut up and be thankful for Captain Cook, the ADF and everything that followed for their benefit.

Just remember most Australian state school curricula teaches kids Australia Day is ” ïnvasion day.”
