The Uluru Statement from the Heart [JPIC Issue 03]

jpic climatejustice 350

The Statement is the product of two years of work, issued in May 2017 on the 50th anniversary of the 1967 referendum

We, gathered at the 2017 National Constitutional Convention, coming from all points of the southern sky, make this statement from the heart:

Our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander tribes were the first sovereign Nations of the Australian continent and its adjacent islands, and possessed it under our own laws and customs. This our ancestors did, according to the reckoning of our culture, from the Creation, according to the common law from ‘time immemorial’, and according to science more than 60,000 years ago.
