Imagine: 'ULURU, AUSTRALIA - CIRCA AUGUST 2016: Uluru at sunset under colorful clouds,Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park, Northern Territory, Australia' By Maurizio De Mattei

On the 26th of October, Cabinet rejected recommendations from the landmark Uluru Statement of the Heart on the basis that the statement is “neither desirable nor capable of winning acceptance in a referendum.”

The Uluru Statement of the Heart calls for an Indigenous advisory body that would allow the First Nations of Australia to have a voice enshrined in the Australian Constitution.
