Sydney’s White Councillors Relabels European Settlers ‘Invaders’
OVERNIGHT, everyone in Australia – definition: did not arrive by boat, but walked there from Africa / Garden of Eden – is an invader:
Sydney City Council last night declared the arrival of white settlers to be an “invasion” and wiped the words “European arrival” from official documents.
During a long debate, councillor Marcelle Hoff lodged a petition for councillors to use the term “invasion or illegal colonisation” in policy documents and statements.
Ms Hoff read out dictionary definitions of invasion as “to take possession, to penetrate, to intrude upon, to overrun”.
“They came in and they did not leave,” she said.
So says Marcelle Hoff, of Sydney’s City Council. Other natives who sit in judgement on “they” are:
Lord Mayor Clover Moore
Deputy Lord Mayor Councillor Marcelle Hoff
Her strong belief in social justice and personal responsibility will see her continue to support policies and programs that are dedicated to providing inclusive, equitable and accessible services to the City’s diverse population. (See her photo at top.)
Councillor Phillip Black (the blackest thing on the board; he;’s white in all but name)
Councillor John McInerney
Councillor Di Tornai
Councillor Robert Kok (invaded from Asia)
Councillor Chris Harris
Councillor Irene Doutney
Councillor The Hon Dr Meredith Burgmann
Councillor Shayne Mallard
