Supporting the call for a Makarratta Committee

Amnesty International Australia has written to the Minister for Indigenous Australians, Ken Wyatt MP, urging him to support a motion before the Senate calling for a Joint Select Committee on Makarratta.

The committee would allow the parliament to explore the history and progress of truth-telling and treaty-making in Australia, international developments in treaty-making and truth-telling, the representation of First Nations parties in treaty-making and truth-telling, and the role of First Nations Voice to Parliament.

Amnesty’s Indigenous Rights Lead, Nolan Hunter, was there when the Uluru Statement of the Heart was formed and is calling on the Minister for action.
