Redfern Community Centre Uluru Statement Forum
The Women’s Reconciliation Network attended a Redfern Community Centre Uluru Statement Forum. They were very supportive and posted the following on their Facebook page:
It was an honour to hear from the Uluru Statement Work Group delegates in Redfern. They spoke of their experience in joining around 250 other Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders from around the country to decide what constitutional reform they envision for their people.
The Uluru Statement from the Heart is the document containing their aspirations for a constitutional voice, and a treaty and truth telling commission or, as they put it in the Yolgnu word, Makarrata.
We encourage friends to go to www.1voiceuluru.com to learn more and to join their voices.

SNAICC – National
Voice for our Children
The Uluru Statement was well received at the final plenary of the #SNAICC2017 Conference. Our children are the future; the struggle for Voice, Treaty and Truth cannot be lost so that powerlessness remains their burden.
The Board of the North Queensland Land Council & a number of delegates on the 30th August at their PBC Summit in Cairns, resolved to fully support the calls for a constitutional Voice, Truth and Treaty as was so powerfully put in the Uluru Statement from the Heart. We wish to see these outcomes in this generation to save the next; we therefore join our voices with the Yolgnu, Gurindji, and the Cape York Land Council in the challenge to the Prime Minister to commence the referendum process.
Today on the anniversary of the Wave Hill Walkoff, we reenacted the walk off that was the beginning of our struggle for land rights and fair working conditions. It was our actions that led to Prime Minister Gough Whitlam giving our country back to us in the symbolic gesture that is celebrated today in Australian history. The call of Voice Truth and Treaty out of Uluru this year was another action that we will be a part of.
Dr Yunupingu put down a challenge to our Prime Minister at Garma to see the call for a voice enacted. We join our voice with theirs with the vision of seeing a Gurindji speaking to parliament, and the truth being told about our history. A settlement of our sad past can be resolved by Makarrata.
