Support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart
Western Sydney University joins universities from across Australia in pledging our support for the Uluru Statement from the Heart.
The Uluru Statement calls for a First Nations Voice to Parliament and a Makarrata Commission to supervise a process of agreement-making and truth-telling, and is a vital part of acknowledging our Indigenous history.
We commit to recognising that these lands we now reside and teach on, have been home to Indigenous peoples for tens of thousands of years. We also commit to listen respectfully, and to value, Indigenous Knowledges.
Our recently launched Indigenous Strategy confirms Western’s longstanding commitment to Indigenous Research and to our Indigenous peoples, the world’s oldest continuous culture.

The 1973 Watergate Committee hearings ran for 51 days. The revelations drew a huge audience. The pressure built with slow, devastating intensity, devouring then US President Richard Nixon’s agenda, eventually leaving him no option but to fall on his sword.
My default mental image of Olivia Newton-John is from the mid-1970s: long, flowing floral dresses; long, centre-parted light brown hair; big inquisitive eyes; and, when called for, an irresistible smile perfect for the cover of TV Week.
