주먹을 든 호주 원주민 상원의원, Calls Queen Elizabeth a 'Colonizer' as She's Sworn Into Office

An Australian senator took aim at 엘리자베스 여왕 by calling her a colonizer as she recited an oath of allegiance to the monarch, who is still head of state in Australia.

Lidia Thrope — the first Aboriginal Australian senator from Victoria who is of DjabWurrung, Gunnai and Gunditjmara descent — had her swearing-in ceremony on Monday at Australia’s Parliament House. She approached the floor with her right fist raised in the air and was asked to recite the traditional oath of office.

“NS, sovereign Lidia Thorpe, do solemnly and sincerely affirm and declare that I will be faithful, and I bear true allegiance to the colonizing Her Majesty 엘리자베스 여왕 II,” Thorpe said before being cut off by Senate President Sue Lines and objections from others.

One senator said, “You’re not a senator if you don’t do it properly.

Thorpe also turned around to tell someone, “You’ve got to have some respect.

Lines asked Thorpe to repeat the oathas printed on the card,” which she did while holding up her fist.

Thorpe later tweeted, “Sovereignty never ceded.

Thorpe’s party, the Australian Greens party, says on its 웹사이트, “The continued legacy of colonialism has not yet fully recognized the sovereignty of our First Nations peoples across the entire continent of Australia. This is a wrong that must be made right. Endemic racism, oppressive laws and policies, misunderstanding, ignorance and the lack of knowledge and education has meant that First Nations peoples have generationally been subject to policies and legislation that have impoverished many lives. At present, many still live in poverty and disadvantage, without the same rights and services that other Australians enjoy. This must be changed so that future generations of First Nations children can dream of better things.
