It’s time to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s Constitution.
And it’s time to remove discrimination – like the section in our founding document that still says peope can be banned from voting based on their race. The movement to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in our Constitution is taking to the road to build even more public support for this quest.
The ‘Journey to Recognition’ will see campaigners for Indigenous recognition travel the length a...nd breadth of Australia. Inspired by Michael Long’s ‘The Long Walk’, the first leg of the Journey will see supporters leave Melbourne on 26 May and walk to Adelaide in a relay, then cycle and drive their way to Nhulunbuy in the Northern Territory for the Garma Festival on 9 August. They will hold scores of community information meetings along the way and recruit many more supporters.
The Journey to Recognition will arrive in Ballarat on Thursday 30 May. The walkers will have their first rest day here on Friday 31 May, and depart on the morning of Saturday 1 June.
