… and now from the ‘Yes’ case

images (4)

It’s been a pretty busy few weeks at the National Press Club, with campaigners from the ‘Yes’ and ‘No’ cases on the Voice referendum taking the stage to make their pitches. Yesterday, it was Noel Pearson’s turn, and the lawyer/Indigenous leader from Queensland’s Cape York made a passionate plea for Aussies to vote ‘Yes’ “to recognise our mutually shared love for the land – because too many of us have grown up strangers”. Pearson says the Voice would be a “modest” advisory body and “the largest mirror we will ever look into as a nation”. It’s coming up to 2 weeks until voting day – and voting is already underway in remote communities. And come Monday, early voting will also begin in the Northern Territory, Tassie, Victoria and Western Oz. In the ACT, NSW, Queensland and South Oz, it’ll kick off on Tuesday cause they start the week with a public holiday.
