I have always felt a sympathy for the Uluru Statement from the Heart. Today I listened to Noel Pearson and other speakers on the ABC Radio National program Big Ideas: "Call for referendum on indigenous recognition". I support this call. While still not having a full understanding of all that is involved, I support a referendum that would recognise Australia's Indigenous people for their true place in Australian society and culture and provide the constitutional authority and duty for the Parliament of Australia to legislate for the Indigenous voice to Parliament.
