Change the date of Australia day

clarew

I believe that the date of Australia day should be changed so that it is more inclusive to the indigenous people of our country. The current date of Australia day is January 26, the day recognised by history as the invasion of new Holland, as it was then known. It was (as noted by the age newspaper in the article the problem with Australia day) "an event which began a chain of disastrous consequences for the indigenous". If it were not for the arrival of "the white man" on Australian shores toda...

Australia Day should be changed from January 26th to another date.

Australia Day should be changed from January 26th to another date because of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people find Australia Day so offensive and they need to be recognised. Australians to this current day do not recognise the background history that Australia Day means for the Aboriginals. It"s simply insane that anyone could expect Aboriginal people to embrace January 26 as the national day, given what Australia Day actually means to them. Australia Day portrays a variety of meanin...

Australia day has a black history. In reality it's the anniversary of the white mans arrival and seizure of Australia. If your ancestors were dispossessed, slaughtered and their families had children taken away and stolen from their arms, Would you celebrate the day it begun? Should Australia day be changed from the 26th of January? For aboriginal people Australia Day is a day of mourning. It reminds them of the genocide that occurred to their people, a time when British settlers separate...

Greetings! I'm challenging sketchb to this debate given that he had to forfeit the last one. In this debate I will argue that homework is not necessary and should not be required. I will use the debate format he proposed for our last discussion: Round 1 - Acceptance Round 2 - Arguments (NO rebuttals) Round 3 - Rebuttals Round 4 - Rebuttals to Rebuttals, Final Remarks I look forward to an interesting discussion. Thanks!...

Why Australia Day should be changed

CaitlinHS

January 26th, the day that marks the arrival of the first fleet in 1788 is intended to bring the population of Australia together as one. Although, it has been recognised that instead of bringing both Aboriginals and non-aboriginals together it is creating more of a division. January 26th is not the right date to celebrate this, in respect for the Aboriginals. Firstly, Australia Day is known as a mourning day for most Aboriginal and Terror Strait Islanders. When Captain Arthur Phillip arrive...

Australia Day should NOT be changed from the 26th of January to another date. Australia is a national public holiday in Australia. It is the celebration of the arrival of the First Fleet of British Ships at Port Jackson on the 26th of January 1788. It is celebrated annually because it is celebrated on what is means to be Australian and what's great about being Australian and living in Australia as a community. It is a day to reconnect with others as a community and a society and to feel special...

#ChangeTheDate Australia day should be changed from the 26th of January to another date.

Australia Day is a date looked forward to by many all over the country. It"s associated with happiness, celebration and a day of pride by some, but what about the others apart of this nation? For the Indigenous Australians who have been known to walk on Australian soil for the last 40,000 + years, this day doesn"t mark a day of joy, commemoration or gratification. This day does not have the same meaning for every Australian citizen, as it should. It marks a day of loss, slaughter, dispossession,...

THW construct additional abortion clinics in populated areas where there are few

Leugen9001
Impact94

Introduction:Imagine that you’re pregnant. You can’t bear to go on with the pregnancy, because your newborn would surely not fare well under your current economic state, in which you are burdened with so much debt that you could barely provide for yourself, let alone a newborn. The nearest abortion clinic is a few hundred miles away in another city—another city that you cannot travel to, considering the fact that your car has been repossessed....
