In this episode of Let’s Talk…Referendum, host Karen Paterson catches up on the campaign for Treaty before Voice.
Karen is joined by Kooma Murri man and seasoned activist Wayne ‘Coco’ Wharton to talk about the concerns, demands, and priorities of the Treaty before Voice movement.

This grassroots First Nations campaign is being overshadowed in media commentary on the “no” campaign, but it represents an important site of refusal for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people calling for “an end to the war against First Nations people” and challenging the utility of constitutional recognition. 

In this wide-ranging conversation, Karen and Wayne talk through the organised campaign against the Voice to Parliament by communities and organisers across the country, and why they’re dedicated to pushing for more substantive political transformations.
