Sydneysiders rally in Surry Hills to say Yes

Thousands of Australians gathered in Prince Alfred Park in Surry Hills on Sunday July 2 to mark the beginning of NAIDOC week and to be part of a nation-wide day of action for Yes.

Organisers handed out free T-shirts to Sydneysiders who turned up to the “Come Together for Yes” rally, which was one of more than 30 family-friendly community events organised by the Yes23 campaign across Australia.

The referendum, to be held later this year, will ask the Australian people whether they support a change to the constitution to create a body — the Voice — to make representations to parliament and the government on matters relating to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities.

Many countries around the world, including New Zealand, Finland, Norway, Canada, Sweden and the United States, already recognise Indigenous people in their constitution.
