Indigenous people are not satisfied with the change in the Australian national anthem, white music said

With the new year, Australia and its indigenous communities have taken a big step towards justice. The move is also considered significant because the Conservative government of Prime Minister Scott Morrison took the initiative. Morrison’s team was against any such change in the past. But now that he has taken steps to change the national anthem of the country, it will be considered as proof that there is a lack of sensation in the country. The opposition Labor Party has long been in favor of this change. He welcomed the move.

Under this change the first line of the national anthem of the country will now be changed. This line will now use the word “one and free” (the other one distinct) instead of the word “young and free” (young and distinct). Earlier this line was ‘Australian All Let’s Respect, For You Young and Free’. Now this line will be – ‘Australian All Let’s Respect, For We Are One and Free’. Critics have long argued that Australia distinguishes itself from indigenous history. Now the message of the word forest will be that the situation is the same in all resident countries of Australia.

When the British occupied Australia, the local population was subjected to violence. They were chased in remote areas. People of British descent were in the majority here. This community has long ignored the interests, language and culture of the indigenous community. Now a step has been taken to correct this historical error. But the Labor Party has said it is a mere symbolic move. The real question is whether there should be a constitutional provision for the decision to represent the indigenous community in Parliament. The Green Party has demanded an agreement between the indigenous and later the migrating community to protect the rights of the indigenous people.

Luke Pearson, a native of the Camillaroi community and editor of the IndigenX website, told The Guardian’s Australian edition that the symbolic move was aimed at silencing dissent. The original form of disagreement seems foolish. He said that the ruling party organizes celebrations every year (British) on the day of the attack. The change brought by him is meaningless.

Star boxer Anthony Mandine, who belongs to the indigenous community, has refused to sing the Australian national anthem at a sports competition. According to local media reports, they are not too impressed with the latest move. Mundain said that this national anthem was the music of the whites of the country. There has been no radical change. Care has been taken when making changes in the attitudes of the conservative white community.

Some conservative leaders have also opposed the change. Former Minister and Senator Matthew Canwan said on his Twitter handle that Australia is a young country. It is not suppressed by the burden of some old culture. He said people from abroad want to come here because they want to start new and young here.

Moderate leaders have welcomed the move. He says the change acknowledges that indigenous peoples have lived on the land for 5,000 years. Their culture is equally ancient. This change further acknowledges that people came here from overseas two hundred and fifty years ago and later, their families are also part of this nation. All of these communities are identified as Australians.
