It’s time for Treaty, to right the wrongs of this nation’s past and move forward together.

Australia lags behind other Commonwealth countries in failing to pursue a Treaty process with its First Nations Peoples.

 If we write a Treaty together, it can be the means to tell the story of who we want to be as a country, creating a national identity that celebrates what unites us, protects the rights of First Nations people and acknowledges the injustices, both past and present. 

We cannot change the past, but we can build a better future and that starts with bringing people together.

A Treaty is a written agreement between the Traditional Owners of the land – people who have been here from time immemorial  – and the colonising state, that imposed its authority upon First Nations people without negotiation or consent.

There can be no peace without justice. Treaty would bring that peace. It would end the suffering and heal the wounds. 

Treaty will ensure Aboriginal people’s voices are counted. 

It can be a process that benefits all Australians, helping to address many of the pressing issues we face as a country – protection of land and water, tackling the climate crisis, and addressing growing economic inequality. 

A Treaty would reframe how we operate as a society and change the course of this country’s history.

The Greens have a plan to make things right through a Truth telling and Treaty process.

We have a plan to:

  • Contribute $250m for a national Truth and Justice Commission to investigate human rights abuses against First Nations people;
  • Begin the national, grassroots led consultation process about Treaty
