Uluru Statement from the Heart Submission 27/04/2021

In Australia, the Aboriginal and Torrens Strait Islanders are the authentic and original settlers in this immense land and entitled to natural justice.
The call for a First Nation Voice in the Australian Constitution is a legitimate step in hearing and responding to Aboriginal needs.
As a nation, we must stop doing wrong and learn to do right!
For our First Nations peoples, we must seek justice, encourage the oppressed and defend the cause of the marginalized.
We need a platform where we can come and reason together, and a voice in the constitution; which cannot easily be dismissed, is a new beginning, leading to a Makarrata Commission and a process of agreement making between governments and First Nation peoples.
On behalf of Aboriginal brothers and sisters, please consider my request and submission.
