Summary
"Australian Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders have been the original landowners and successful custodians of the Australian landscape for over 50,000 years. In 1788 Britain took possession of the eastern half of Australia without any regard for the original inhabitants and as a result acquired the unassailable legal position of being the first occupants. This unacceptable situation has continued under the doctrine of terra nullius, a doctrine supporting the position that prior to 1788 Australia belonged to no one. While terra nullius remains at the heart of the Australian legal system there can be no social justice for Australian Aboriginals. The impact of terra nullius has been the dispossession of Aboriginal land and a denial of fundamental Aboriginal rights. Social justice is still outstanding." -- [From abstract]
