The Prime Minister’s set to unveil the referendum date for the Indigenous Voice to Parliament today.
Anthony Albanese travels to South Australia today where he’ll announce the date in front of a crowd of supporters in Adelaide.
South Australia’s viewed as a key state in the referendum process.
Assistant Indigenous Australians Minister Malarndirri McCarthy urged Australians to take part in the referendum.
“Your vote is your vote. When you go into that ballot box, only you know what you’ve said, whether it’s yes or no.
I do believe in my heart that what we’re asking Australians from the Yes side is to support an advisory body – a voice – to be enshrined in the constitution to enable First Nations people to lift our lives across the country, but also to have the place of respect in the Australian constitution that recognises over 65,000 years of First Nations culture in this country.”
