Footage from last month’s Invasion Day rallies around Australia featured speakers urging those gathered to vote ‘No’ in the promised Indigenous Voice to Parliament referendum expected later this year.

In this episode, we hear from a proud Bundjalung woman and human rights advocate, Vanessa Turnbull Roberts, about why she’s opposing the voice.
