Final Warning - Poem by Lisa Bellear

Our Elders, Olders, respected warriors
have thought and fought for generations.
They have requested I inform this country
of an impending official war. Sadly I am
to convey, there seems to be no alternatives.

As of midnight December 31 2000 a state
of war will be declared in Australia.
An interim Council of War, is meeting
As we speak.

These are exciting times. Please continue
smiling. Two hundred and twelve
years seemed awhile to wait for recognised
treaty negotiations to commence
between First Nations Australians and
a Federal Commonwealth Australian
government.

You will be kept informed and
remain patient.
