18. The "aborginal passport" is a publicity stunt and fundraiser by the ISJA, which is

a very small and only irregularly active group with Green connections

We know that they are very small and only irregularly active from their webpage, the sole content of which is the announcement "2003-7 Newsletters now online" -- http://www.isja.org.au/

We know that this is a publicity stunt and fundraiser from the press release: "... To the very large number of others wishing to receive a passport you will each need to sign the pledge that allows you to show respect to the true sovereign owners of the Aboriginal nations and to not allow the parliaments of Australia any legitimacy from the theft of Aboriginal lands. Personal details will be given to those filling out the passports, the placement of a passport-sized photo and $10 to help in covering costs. Then you will receive your own passport to use as you travel through the sovereign Aboriginal nations ..." -- http://www.greenleft.org.au/node/52227

Yes, now that Julian Assange has his "passport," wouldn't you like to get one, too?
