Key Points (Updated Live)

  • Bob Weatherall:

    “I believe that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and non-indigenous peoples all need to actively strive to decolonise and all individuals and agencies do this by adopting the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, adhere to its principles and present your support in all forms of cultural and creative expression, form bipartisan agreements that support a treaty/treaties, Aboriginal Land Rights, rights to their cultural heritage and cultural property and support the contemporary expression of their arts and culture”.
