I strongly support the Uluru Statement. Its about time we, as a whole nation, include the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in our Constitution. As the placards say: Voice, Treaty and Truth

The delays and/or avoidance and/or "lack of political will" to do what needs to be done have been very clear to-date - and plenty of "better ideas" have been given a go; it's now well past time to do the right thing and give the aboriginal nation their requested voice to parliament, declare Aboriginal rights in our constitution and bring truth to the forefront .

We need a country that treats all Australians equally - and if this means giving Aboriginal people a much bigger slice of the pie to try to address issues like poorer Indigenous living standards, loss of Aboriginal heritage and identity, higher Aboriginal mortality rates and excessively high rates of incarceration and deaths in custody (only to mention a few obvious areas) - I'm all for it.
