The Coalition’s leader, Peter Dutton, will actively campaign against an Indigenous voice to parliament after announcing that the Liberal frontbench will oppose it. He argues Indigenous Australians would be better served by an alternative proposal involving symbolic constitutional recognition and a legislated model of local and regional voices. Jane Lee talks to Thomas Mayo, a Kaurareg and Kalkalgal Erubamle author and director of Australians for Indigenous Constitutional Recognition, on why he thinks Dutton is wrong about the voice.
