Surfing Victoria's Indigenous Aquatics Manager Steve Parker is excited and proud of this landmark event at Bells saying, "I am really looking forward to the first Australian Indigenous Titles in 16 years. Bells Beach is the perfect location to showcase the incredible talent in the Australian Indigenous surfing community. Bells Beach itself holds a long cultural history, with several significant sacred sites throughout the reserve. Our people have been watching waves roll in at Bells for thousands of years and it looks like it will be a great event."

The event kicks off Sunday afternoon at 3.30pm, with an important smoking ceremony to cleanse the event. All members of the public are invited out to Bells to be a part of this historical event.

Not only was Bells Beach a wonderful racist free place but so was Darwin (NT Australia)...Or it was before Obama saw fit to deposit 2,500 US marines on it and deposit unwanted drones on the Cocos Island...Australia is facing a shortage of skilled workers to maintain its mining force and visas are now open to all but given this new US invasion and occupation of yet another sovereign state I was forced to send an email to the Australian PM asking if the skill to kill is really something Australia needs?...Is it not time that Obama accepts that not only is the British Empire extinct but so is the post war US Empire...China owns America but Americans fail to accept this and apparently condone the US expanding its military bases worldwide?... I fail to understand this foolishness given the fact that America is bankrupt...

I hope this does not annoy too many Americans, I quite like them but war solves nothing and it is time to lay down your very expensive arms and look after the downtrodden people at home?

Racism is becoming Anti Americanism in Australia and this is not a good thing... How many American Indians are treated to such an event or are reservations and nuclear waste dumps still on the agenda?
