  • Introduction to Video Content
  • In a recent video interview, Nyungar Warren Mundine, a No voter, discusses his campaign against the Voice to Parliament proposal. Mundine, a prominent figure in Australian politics, argues that the voice is a political power grab that would not effectively represent Indigenous communities or promote unity. He points to the 1967 referendum as a pivotal moment in Australian history, where laws that treated Aboriginals as second-class citizens were abolished, paving the way for progress and equality in the nation. Mundine believes that the current proposal for a Voice to Parliament is not the right way forward and urges voters to reject it.Meanwhile, former Liberal MP and ultra-marathon runner Pat Farmer embarks on a 14,000km journey from Hobart to Uluru, coinciding with the upcoming vote on the voice. Farmer aims to highlight the importance of community voices in the decision-making process. The Prime Minister expresses confidence in the pro-voice lobby and believes it presents an opportunity to change the nation for the better.On the other side, the No campaign launches a media marathon with a series of advertisements, targeting regular Australians who may not fully understand the voice proposal. The campaign questions who the voice will truly represent and whether it will prioritize remote communities and vulnerable populations. As the wrangling of political rhetoric intensifies in the months leading up to the vote, the key question remains: Will the voice create unity or further divide the country?Warren Mundine reiterates his belief that the voice to parliament is a political power grab, emphasizing the importance of the 1967 referendum in achieving equality for Aboriginal citizens. He highlights the progress made since then and expresses concerns that the current proposal may not serve the best interests of Indigenous communities. Mundine argues for a different way forward and encourages voters to reject the voice to parliament proposal.

  • Vote no if you don't know.
  • Not challenging the star power of the pro-party, the No side instead opting for regular Aussies, saying the vast majority of Indigenous people have no idea what the voice is.
  • Who is the voice really going to be?
  • Will it represent remote communities?
  • Will it represent the vulnerable?
  • So six months until the vote, the wrangling of political rhetoric is now well underway.
  • A stronger, more united Australia.
  • Will it really create unity?
  • Or divide us even more?
  • Well joining us now is Nyungar Warren Mundine.
  • Now Warren, you've called the voice a political power grab.
  • Why do you think that is?
  • To me it's very simple.
  • Over the last, since the 1967 referendum which was about equality and treating Australian citizens as all the same.
  • We did have citizenship but we were second class citizens.
  • I was born under the old New South Wales Protection Act and was under the New South Wales Aboriginal Welfare Board.
  • 67 changed all that.
  • All those laws disappeared.
  • People went out of their way to help Aboriginals get to schools, get to universities and we started moving forward as a nation.
  • What I've seen in the last 20 years is there's two things that are happening and that is through native title and land rights where Aboriginal people are getting their lands back.
  • They've got about 20-25% of Australia now, probably a little bit more.
  • Anytime you want to do something, even if it's off Aboriginal land, you want to build a bridge, you want to build a road, you want to do a project whether it's mining or whatever, you've got to consult and negotiate with the Aboriginal people.
  • That's become very powerful.
  • We saw how powerful it was last week when Andrew Forrest, one of the richest blokes in Australia, was stopped from doing irrigation on a river.
  • That's a pretty powerful voice to do that.
  • This is one of the problems I have is that here you've got these people who are on the ground who have this voice, have this power on their country, so they're there doing things for us, and then you put a bureaucracy on top of it.
  • You've been speaking to everyday Australians, what are they telling you about the voice?
  • Most everyday Australians are like most everyday Aboriginal people.
  • They haven't heard of it, they don't understand it, they don't know what it is.
  • I'd say that's a large percentage of the population.
  • The good news for us is that, and this is what I'm pretty proud about Australians, is even if they may not know things about it or they're unsure about it, they still will tick that box.
  • The reason they do that is because they really want to see a change for Aboriginal people, a better change.
  • That's made me very happy.
  • But you don't want them to tick that box?
  • No, I do want them to tick the box in regard to recognition of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the constitution, but not on the voice.
  • I think the voice is the wrong way to go.
  • Yes, no, is the question.
  • If the no case gets up, what then?
  • Well, the no case gets up, my thing is that I'm still going to fight for reconciliation, I'm still going to fight for Aboriginals to be recognised.
  • Doesn't a no vote blow that up though?
  • Well, no.
  • What the problem is, you've got two things coming together which should have been kept apart.
  • One is that if you, even in our polling, you ask people, do you want to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in the constitution as the first people of this country, bang, 90 per cent.
  • 90 per cent of Australians, yes.
  • Then you get to the voice, it drops down to about 50, 52, 54 per cent, and then there's very soft support, as I was saying before, they sort of tie those two things.
  • But when you start talking about structures, when you start talking about operations, then it drops again.
  • So, just on politics, there's been suggestion you put your hand up to take over the vacant Senate spot in New South Wales from the great Jim Moulton, are you going to put your hand up?
  • I have no comment about that, you know.
  • I'll take that as a yes.
  • Look at me, I'm only 26, look at politics, don't do that.
  • Well, then you've got a long career ahead of you, and I agree with you, I think that was a yes.
  • It was.
  • It was a no.
  • It was a no.
  • You heard it here first.
  • Warren, thank you so much for your time tonight.
  • Oh, thanks for having us, and this has been a great conversation, thank you.
