EDITOR'S LETTER

EDITORIAL The rights of Indigenous peoples has been a key topic in the last few months. From a nation-wide campaign for recognition within the Australian Constitution, to the protest of forced closures of remote communities, and the high rates of Indigenous kids being incarcerated across the country; Indigenous rights is all over the news. Sadly, the racist culture in Australia has also been making headlines again. It is hard to believe that still, generations later, we are having this same conflict. I don’t know about you, but I am tired of living in a perpetual cycle of racial vilification, and I am so tired of hearing people say, “I’m not racist, but …” It is time for us to stand up and join this fight for Indigenous rights, recognition and equality. Within this edition you will find some excellent resources to get you started including Amnesty campaign material, articles, and ways in which you can take action now. Fighting for Indigenous rights is not a gesture of charity; it is an act of justice, and there is no time like the present. Thank you for your support, Emily Williamson
