The Australian Greens welcome the open letter from the Australian Council of Human Rights Authorities urging all political parties to take heed of the Uluru Statement and to implement real change.
“I urge the community to get behind the Uluru Statement and let all sides of politics know that they don't want it to collect dust on a Parliament House shelf.
“Too many reports on positive change for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have had that fate, we cannot let it happen again.
“The Coalition and Labor party have both said we must listen to our First Peoples, now is the time they should do that.
“I support the Australian Council of Human Rights Authorities encouragement to all of our political leaders to take heed of the Uluru Statement from the Heart; to work across party lines, and to implement real change, for the benefit of all Australians”.
