Did I hear someone say 'indigenous rights'?
The sound is quite unfamiliar - haven't heard it much since we all said 'sorry'. Heard it today from The Greens candidate for NT - a big blackfella who shed a tear when he talked about the impact of intervention on indigenous communities in the NT.
Say it loud; say it clear - indigenous rights are about more than a word and a TV opportunity. The first Australians are out of sight and out of mind in this election. And for that, I am sorry.
