Shire supports Uluru Statement from the Heart

Published on Friday, 15 July 2022 at 2:34:20 PM

Shire of Mundaring resolved to register its support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart at its Council meeting on Tuesday 12 July.

The decision comes following a call from the Minister for Indigenous Australians, the Hon Linda Burney MP, for a registry of civil society support for the Uluru Statement, and reflects the message of NAIDOC Week 2022 which encouraged Australians to Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up!

Shire President James Martin said the Shire was proud to add its support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart, which calls for the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making and truth-telling about the history of First Nations people.

Council will now write to the Prime Minister and Minister for Indigenous Australians to formally express its support for the Uluru Statement.
