The Uluru Statement From The Heart is a welcome gift from First Nation People to the rest of the country.

The Statement indicates the profound connection to country, illustrates the manner in which First Nation People suffer, and provides a concise proposition to move forward whereby our past is presented truthfully in order to make our future hopeful.

We call on Parliament to adopt the recommendations offered in the Statement, Specifically we demand a constitutionally enshrined Voice to Parliament to oversee Treaties and Truth-telling, led by a Makarrata Commission.

It is incredible that after 230 years of gross disrespect towards First Nation People, these same people continue to open their hearts and offer a solution that enables the rest of Australia to enhance their connection to this most amazing Country.

Enough time has passed, enough spirits have passed from this world to the next. It is time for Australia to honour with immense pride the contributions of the Oldest Continual Culture on Earth.

Implementation of the recommendations in the Uluru Statement From The Heart is the most appropriate mode of ensuring equality across all communities. Act now, and be responsible for the most significant alteration in this Country’s trajectory.
