Aboriginals injustice

At our school we have been learning about injustice. We had 6 topics Aboriginals, American Slaves, Jews ,Parihaka , Apartheid, Sweatshops and Women Voting. I choose Aboriginals.I choose them because I did know a bit about Aboriginals but I wanted to know more and what happened to them in injustice.
Doing this makes me think about how lucky I am and that this is sad that this is happening in the world. I hope one day this will stop. Here is my research, hope you enjoy.  

Who are Aboriginals and where do they live?
Aboriginals are people who are the original people who are in the country . Aboriginals are indigenous to mainly Australia but there are in South Africa to. There are about  400,000 Aboriginals  in Australia.
Aborigines migrated from Asia about 30,000 years ago. The Northern Territory has the biggest proportion of its population.Almost two thirds of Aboriginal people live in eastern Australia.


What Happened to the Aboriginals?
When white people came to Australia it was hard for them to understand Aboriginals culture. Ignorance Led to many thousands of Aboriginals dead being killed by white people. In 1838 28 Aboriginals were murdered near Myall Creek Station . Indigenous groups are calling the government to finally act of aboriginals and Torres strait islander being imprisoned. Half The People in Juvenal are Aboriginals and Torres strait islander.


Why were Aboriginals in injustice and how did it start?
Not long ago Aboriginals weren't recognised as citizen of their own country. There didn’t have the right to vote or to fight for their own land.Aboriginals people have a long and proud history that includes rich culture and spiritual tradition. However were altered or even taking away by the arrival of the European settlers.  


Whats NAIDOC week?
NAIDOC stands for ( National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee)
Naidoc week was celebrated for Aboriginals history culture and achievement.  From 1938 to 1955 the day of Aborigines was held annually on Australia's day of protest.
In 1955 aborigines day was shifted to the first Sunday of the July after it was decided to be a celebration of Aboriginal culture rather than a protest.. In 1975 it was decided that it should go for a week.


How can we helped?
We can not be said that the colour of skin can determined
Weather or not you go to jail or not. It is sad that jail is seen a passage for Aboriginals and Torres Strait Islanders. Its an outrage that this is normal, we can’t shrug are shoulders and say this is a way of life this is not a way of life and there will always be bad people in the world but somehow someone can stop poverty and injustice

New house

The old fly trap door gradually opens, I step in the scent of new paint hits me making me dizzy. The walls are bare and glossy they look like there is wet paint on them.sitting in the corner a bronze round table. Brown boxes pile up around the house, new mattress lean against the wall. The arched grey couch makes me feel welcome.

Useless Loop

Useless Loop was usual enough ; It had
a park, a shop, a forest and a beach and even a little old pool. My brother my friends and I did what people in the town do - on Thursday we galloped over to the shop and bought hokey pokey ice- cream  and were creeping all around hunting for lizards under rocks and then naming them names like bob, cherry and bob junior  we also had heaps of sleepover, also we went bush bashes through the forest seeing the occasional snake slithering below are feet or we just play ball tag in the park and when we try play with Nerf guns and  I would shot my brother he would tackle me. On Saturdays we always went down to the oval and play AFL and everyone brought  their dogs to play to.

The Lee River

We stumbled down the long grassy path reaching the hot sand, are cousins come tumbling down after us my toes touch the cold icy water and I could barely stay in for a second. I dive I my body goes numb, my head pops up and everyone's in including Molly my border collie. We start swimming to the slippery mossy rocks , were the swing rope is.

I climb until I reach the swing rope but before I  swing of the rope I jump of the rock splash my head pops and I see my dog trying to climb up the rock but she slips into the water I quickly swim to her my numb arms reach out to help her but her claws scratch me and she swims away. I scurry up the...wow!!! There goes my brother on the swing rope, splash he hits the water I was watching him so much that I didn’t realise molly was trying to get up i move out of the way and she slowly finds a way up. One By one people our going of the swing rope and molly yelp each time trying to save them. Soon mum calls out “ time to get out”  we all scurry out we say goodbye and get in the car and drive of.

Term 1 week 9 student blogging challenge

All over the world kids are suffering from dirty water this can make them very sick this also has make many young children die.Nearly one billion do not have access to clean water. 663 million people in the world live without clean water that nearly 1 in 10 people worldwide.

Facts

  • women and children spend 125 million hours each day collecting water.
  • women and girls living without a toilet spend 266 million hours each day finding a place to go.

Just give a little bit of water to help. 

Ways we can help
  • Donate just $15 to charity
  • Use less water in the shower and don't leave taps running
But I believe that we could solve this problem if the world joined in.
