Murrawarri Republic Media Release

Always independent: An interview with Murrawarri Republic Chair Fred Hooper

This weekend in Brisbane, the Referendum Council is holding the last of the Dialogues : a series of meetings with First Nations peoples to discuss the issue of recognising the nation's Indigenous people within the Australian constitution. The findings from the meetings will be reported at a First Nations Convention at Uluru in late May.
