I’m an Australian living and working I the UK as paramedic with the Welsh Ambulance Service.
Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
The Ularu Statement from the Heart is important for Australia because of the necessity to acknowledge the contribution of our indigenous people and to redress past imbalance when it comes to how our nation treats its original inhabitants.
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
Constitutional inclusion will make it permanent and free from future policy change.
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
Indigenous people should be treated on an equal footing with everyone else which means they should have a say in matters which affect them.
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
Goes without saying. Representation should be inclusive.
