Australian Greens Leader, Dr Richard Di Natale today expressed the Greens support for Adam Goodes.
“Adam Goodes is a formidable Australian, a champion sportsman and an inspiring advocate for a better and more equal Australia,” said Senator Di Natale.
“The racism and hostility he has faced for celebrating his culture is deeply disappointing. As a nation we should feel proud, not threatened, by the strong and enduring culture of First Australians.
