Shouting at the television and planting gardens, by Lesley Howard
Whether the tipping point came after watching television, listening to or reading the news, across Australia people are finding their voice and creating pathways to new futures. Here are the stories of those moments from some of the people who in 2019 are standing as Independents, campaigning for them, writing about them or all of the above.
I acknowledge and respect Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Elders past, present and future and honour the stories, traditions and culture of the Traditional Custodians of the unceded land upon which I live and work. And I commit to truth telling, treaty and a voice, towards building a just and inclusive future with our First Nations people.
