Change needed to the Australian flag

Letters to the editor

The Union Jack on the Australian flag is a symbol of a colonial mentality and superior military force to the original inhabitants of this country.

Indigenous people were here first before alien occupiers drove them off their lands. There is a history, and this is the history of, where Aborigines are concerned when they were suppressed of their culture, many massacred, many destroyed of their livelihood, many used as slave labour. When you have moronic comments from cash for comments media types, such as “the Stolen Generation is all a myth”, is like saying “the Holocaust is a myth”. They say nothing is permanent. Change the flag by removing the Union Jack, and not before time, may I add.
