A message about ACTION from Noreen Nicholson, Vice-President, Geelong Sustainability

Andre SilvaNews

One of the main actions Thomas Mayor requested, was for us to spread the word about the intention of the Uluru Statement.

How can you do this?

1. Register Support:

Please register your support on either of these websites to keep informed of the public consultation about the campaign

From the Heart    and/or   Uluru Statement from the Heart

There is a campaign toolkit available at  https://ulurustatement.org/campaign-toolkit

2. Read the following book/s: 

for new knowledge and to help spread the word.  Many people, including First Nations people, are not familiar with the Uluru Statement.

  • Finding the Heart of the Nation, Journey of the Uluru Statement Towards Voice, Treaty and Truth by Thomas Mayor.
  • Finding Our Heart, a book for children by Thomas Mayor.  Learn along with our children!

Publish by Hardie Grant Publishing.

3. Watch the Film:

  • Uluru Statement from the Heart Explainer Video

This 20-minute Rachel Perkins film costs $1.00 and can be purchased at: https://theeducationshop.com.au

4. Contact our politicians:

Contact your politicians far and wide and ensure they know that you support a referendum to enshrine an Indigenous Voice.  ‘Voice’ is required first because, as Thomas advised, a Treaty can be thrown out at any time with a change in government.

5. Share the study guide with your children’s teachers:

There are links to curriculum and a variety of classroom activities.

The Uluru Statement from the Heart is a profound call from Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders peoples for constitutional change and structural reform in their relationship with Australia - a relationship based on fairness, truth, justice and self-determination where Indigenous cultures can flourish, and the Australian nation can reach a fuller potential.  It is an invitation from First Nations to all Australians “to walk with us in a movement of the Australian people for a better future”.

Let us all be part of the journey to build the power and make decision-makers accountable for the treatment of the First Nation people from 1967 to 2020!
