Cook is an insult - he used Chinese maps anyway!

I'm recently moved north from Naarm/ Melbourne & instantly hated this statue. The statue is offensive & is based on a lie. The highway leads towards the Torres Strait & Wik where Eddie Mabo fought to over turn the lie of Terra Nullius. It should be renamed Mabo Highway & this insult of an over sized concrete garden ornament removed.

I have many reasons why this should be removed.
The most important is RESPECTING how the statue effects Aboriginal culture. Another important reason is, this statue is not representing FACT.
I also want to say, ‘ALL LIVES MATTER’, whether that be black, white, trees, animals. This statue also represents such an important issue, RACISM. Unfortunately this has been achieved, this is part of their agenda.

Indigenous-Australians deserve better than to have to look at this man every time they go out in public.

People were already living here. We need a new Australia that acknowledges what it was built on: Genocide.
