Last week the Minister for Indigenous Affairs, Nigel Scullion, announced that the Australian Government has established a panel to review public support for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander constitutional recognition.
The review follows on from the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples Recognition Act 2013, which passed unanimously through the Australian Parliament last year, and is the Government’s next step towards a referendum on the issue.
Rock for Recognition has teamed up with the Canberra and District NAIDOC Committee to bring you some more Rock for Recognition at the National Multi-Cultural Festival Saturday February 8.
