QPASTT’s Board has affirmed our support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart and a First Nations Voice to Parliament, issuing the following position statement.
QPASTT Supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart and a First Nations Voice to Parliament
QPASTT’s vision is for people from refugee backgrounds to live lives liberated from the harms of torture, trauma and human rights injustice.
As an organisation that was founded on the principles of human rights and listening to the voices of survivors, we believe that we can only achieve this vision when Australia has truly reconciled its history and restored justice for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.
That is why QPASTT strongly supports the Uluru Statement from the Heart, the establishment of a First Nations Voice enshrined in the Constitution and a Makarrata Commission.
We walk in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people towards a future of healing and justice, where the First Nations Voice to Parliament is an important step to shaping a more inclusive, just Australia.
