Produced by Eduardo Jordan

Story audio

In 1990s, the referendum of the government to switch the political system into a Republic was defeated. Today, after more than a decade, the movement strikes back and gaining its momentum. The movement is bringing a topic on the spotlight: acknowledging and recognising the First Peoples of Australia into the Constitution.

The Australian Republic Movement is consulting with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander leaders to develop the idea of Australia to become a Republic, in which the system looks more accurate to the actual values (Image by mikecogh on Flickr).
