"Unite" a poster to commemorate the 50 years since the amendment of the Constitution. On 27th May 1967, Australians overwhelmingly voted to amend the Constitution to include the Indigenous population in the census and give the Commonwealth power to make special laws for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. We've probably all seen such iconic films such as 'Rabbit-Proof Fence' & 'Samson and Delilah' which highlight the struggles of the Indigenous population during the uncomfortable economic opportunism of European settlement. The 27th May is undoubtedly a day which means many different things to many different people and which also poses various questions. What do the 1967 reforms mean for Indigenous people in Australia today? Are further constitutional changes needed and, if so, what form should they take? I understand that this is a complex issue, but a basic belief in the humanity, dignity and compassion of all people is not that complicated and should be what is paramount.
