Co-design process: Submission for Patrick Lyons
White Man from Wollongong.
Why do you think the Uluru Statement from the Heart is important?
Indigenous voices need to be heard
How could a Voice to Parliament improve the lives of your community?
Yes; local community would be more inclusive and therefore properly democratic, in line with our proclaimed values of “a fair go”
Why do you think it's important to enshrine the Voice to Parliament in the Constitution, rather than include it only in legislation?
So that it is protected by constitutional laws and shows its importance in relation to the rest of the constitution
Why is it important for Indigenous people to have a say in the matters that affect them?
Goes without saying; it is a basic human right. Also they were denied it for the longest time.
Just do it. We asked for it, they delivered it; it is time to act on it (finally!)
