Indigenous Man "Harassed" After Presenting Aboriginal Passport
Callum Clayton-Dixon claims Customs staff "tried to intimidate" him.
"I'm an Aboriginal man returning to my country with an Aboriginal passport." –Callum Clayton-Dixon
Customs "does not consider an Aboriginal passport to be a valid travel document."
The Aboriginal Provisional Government (APG) issues the passports. It was launched in 1990 to campaign for Aboriginal sovereignty. Clayton-Dixon is currently the chairperson.
One of the more famous holders of an Aboriginal passport is WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange.

"Why should we as an Aboriginal people be forced to use a colonial document that we never agreed to?" –Callum Clayton-Dixon
