How to read the news in 2018
The 2018 International Year of the Boat was held on September 22, 2018, and with the exception of the Australian Federal Election, was a major event.
It was an occasion to celebrate the many achievements of the people of Australia, to acknowledge the achievements of our Indigenous people, and to commemorate the work of our nation’s first Indigenous Chief Executive, John Rau.
But what about the news of the year?
While there were no major news stories, there was one significant story that made the headlines.
In the US, President Donald Trump announced a plan to deport the entire estimated 9 million people living in the US as part of his controversial ‘Build the Wall’ immigration policy.
A day after the announcement, US President Donald J Trump was forced to issue a statement clarifying the plans.
“The US will not be a sanctuary nation,” Mr Trump said in his statement.
“We will not allow those who have committed crimes to remain here, to re-enter the US.
We will not grant them a path back into the US if they cannot be convicted or otherwise return to their home countries.”
The announcement was met with widespread backlash.
Many people expressed their opposition to the plan, which was widely viewed as discriminatory.
Others said that the plan would not be enough to stop the influx of illegal immigrants, and the president’s remarks were met with outrage from many, including Indigenous people and civil rights activists.
Indigenous people across Australia have been pushing for an end to the policies of the Trump administration, and have been calling for their return since the first report of the plan emerged in the media in late January.
On August 8, 2018 in the town of Boonville, New South Wales, the Boonvillers took to the streets to protest against the Trump plan, saying that they were “not a racist nation” and that the actions of the US president “were a violation of our treaty rights”.
“They will never change, they are the one who changed the way our people are treated,” said BoonVillers Indigenous elder and member of the Bunnies Bunnie Boys Association, Matt Pugh.
“And they’re not even doing it to us.
They’re doing it because they want to keep us in our own land.
And they’re doing that by force.”
The Bunnys Bunnion Boys Association was founded by a group of Indigenous boys who were taken from their families and forced into the mining industry in New South Welsh Australia in the 1960s.
Since then, the organisation has grown into a movement to fight the return of Indigenous people to their homelands and to ensure that their rights are respected and that they have a place in their communities.
“It’s been almost 50 years since the Btonies Boonboys Association was established,” Mr Pugh said.
“They’re not a racist national organisation.
“That’s a national issue and we want our children back in our country.” “

They make up around one quarter of the world’s population and are responsible for over 50 per cent of global greenhouse gas emissions.
Indigenous peoples have made significant contributions to the development of science and technology, including through the development and operation of the National Aboriginal Research Centre in Darwin.
In 2017, the Australian Indigenous Women’s Federation (AIWF) awarded a Presidential Medal of Recognition to the Honourable Dame Elizabeth Gaudron for her contribution to the advancement of Indigenous women in science, technology, engineering and mathematics.
“Her work on the Indigenous women’s space is one of the most important things I’ve ever worked on,” AIWF President Sue Glynn said.
Ms Glynn is also the Chair of the Aboriginal Women’s Alliance and the chair of the AIWF Women’s Council.
Ms Rau, who is also a member of AIWF, said that her organisation had been campaigning against the US administration for more than 20 years.
“This is the first time we have had a US President, a president who is a white man, actually come to us,” Ms Raur said.
“There are more than 1.5 billion people who are Indigenous people in the world, and we’ve got to come together to get them back. “
“As a community, we have to come to terms with the fact that we have lost so much of our heritage, and what we are trying to get back is the same as we’ve lost everything. “
“I don’t think we’ve been able to take our heritage”
