For many years Former Senator Rod Culleton, leader of the Great Australian Party, has been fighting for the freedoms of the Australian people under the Great Seal of the Commonwealth.
Mr Culleton, who calls himself a ‘Senator in exile,’ has been harassed by authorities, threatened with arrest, prevented from crossing state borders, had some of his social media accounts dismantled, and says he is now facing intimidation by the Australian Electoral Commission who has referred him to the police.
Through all this, Culleton has remained steadfast in his campaign to expose what he says is a corporatised and illegitimate government and continues in his fight to reinstall the rights of the Australian people under the Commonwealth Constitution he says were removed decades ago.
Mr. Culleton has for a long time said that the Australian government is a corporation that installed itself following the removal of the Great Seal of the Commonwealth by the Whitlam Labor government in 1973.
Following a series of unanswered requests for the government to prove his allegations incorrect, Culleton lodged a Freedom of Information Request (FIO) on 12 July 2021, posing a series of questions to ascertain the Australian government’s position and to provide proof of its legitimacy.
At a rally on Saturday 14 May in Perth, Western Australia, Mr. Culleton revealed the sensational admissions made by the government which confirmed his long-standing claims that the government had no authority to remove the Great Seal in 1973 and that it had violated the Constitution of the Commonwealth which has denied the authority of the Australian people for decades.
He told the crowd that packed Forrest Place on Saturday, that he had received a response to his FOI request; and while he was exhausted; he was ‘right to drive this home.”
He said people needed to know the political agenda that has been hidden from them for many years, and over the last two years of the pandemic, that has impacted the lives of all of us in the name of safety and security, and people’s medical choices.
“It is true – I received an answer to a Freedom of Information request last year from the Australian Attorney-General who confirmed that there was no legal basis to remove the authority of the Australian people by destruction of the Great Seal of the Commonwealth of Australia,” he said.
Former Senator Culleton’s FOI request contained a list of questions that were responded to by Joanna Baker Assistant Director of the Department of the Attorney General’s office. The questions along with the responses were shared by Culleton at the rally, which he says proves constitutional violations by the government.
Excerpt of Former Senator Rod Culleton’s speech on May 14, 2022, at Forrest Place, WA.
“Regarding the authority to terminate the Great Seal of the Commonwealth of Australia, I requested the instrument that overrides, suspends, or terminates the Federal Commonwealth under the crown of the United Kingdom. Ms Barker responded – ‘No relevant documents were identified, and I am also satisfied that the documents do not exist within the department’s record holdings.’
Question 1: I requested the cause and/or reason why the term ‘Commonwealth of Australia’ was removed from the statutes bypassing the Statute Law Revision Act of 1973. The answer from the Attorney General – ‘It does not exist.’
Question 2: I requested the cause and/or the reason why the term ‘Australia,’ was made for use in place of the prior practice of using the term ‘Commonwealth of Australia.’ The answer from the Attorney General – ‘It does not exist.’
Question 3: I requested the instrument, and the source of authority, for the removal of the authority of the Australian people, termed ‘Commonwealth of Australia.’ The answer from the Attorney General – ‘It does not exist.’
Question 4: I requested the publications issued for sufficient notice advising the Australian people of the removal of the ‘Commonwealth of Australia’ was to be made or had been undertaken. Answer – ‘It does not exist.’
Question 5: I requested the cause and/or reason why the term ‘Parliament of Australia’ was made to be used in the Federal parliament in place of the name ‘Parliament of the Commonwealth.’ Answer – ‘It does not exist.’
Question 6: I requested the cause and/or reason why the term ‘Australian Gazette’ was made to be used in place of the publication name ‘Commonwealth gazette.’ Answer – ‘It does not exist.’
Question 7: I requested the instrument for the Constitution of Australia to run the Australian government. Answer – ‘It does not exist.’

The former Senator said that the government in Canberra and elsewhere needs to legitimately start serving the Australian people. He said questions need to be asked about why the Whitlam government removed the people’s authority in 1973, which has been supported by other parties, and why no government, party, or corporation has addressed this in the decades since it occurred.
Senator Culleton advised the crowd that his senior advisor Mr. Pitchinham in London who had prepared the case for the restoration of the Commonwealth had received the same answers that Mr. Culleton had received in his FOI request.
“This state of affairs can not be allowed to go on any longer”, he said, adding that “It is time to take action and rightfully restore our Commonwealth, our rights, and our freedoms.
Graham ‘Hoody’ Hood; a former Qantas Pilot who was forced into retirement due to the mandates; rounded off Mr. Cullerton’s important message by saying, “this is not the time to back-off and take it easy.”
Mr Hood said that an election isn’t going to solve the problems the Australian people are facing and that the fight would continue into the foreseeable future. He told the large gathering that a lot of people had asked him when we might get a taste of victory. Mr Hood said,
“Look around you, you already have. When you look around at these people, and when you are asked in 15-20 years’ time by your grandkids – where were you in 2022, where were you in 2023, you can say ‘I was there – I was there for you!’”
As Mr. Culleton and Mr. Hood stood side by side on the stage, Mr Hood said, “We’ll rest when this is over,” he said, “until then, we are in this fight and we’re not going anywhere,”
