THE HON MARK DREYFUS KC MP
MEMBER FOR ISAACS
MELBOURNE WALK FOR YES RALLY
SUNDAY, 17 SEPTEMBER 2023
SUBJECT: Voice to Parliament.
JOURNALIST: So how are you feeling about this rally? What is the importance of it?
ATTORNEY-GENERAL MARK DREYFUS: This is a hugely important rally with Melbourne showing that we are supporting the Yes campaign. This was the invitation from the Uluru Statement from the Heart, to walk together to a better future and Melbourne people are out here in their thousands walking, walking together to a better future.
JOURNALIST: The polls lately have been showing a growing support for the No vote. Do you think seeing the turnout today, are you thinking that this might not be that accurate?
ATTORNEY-GENERAL: It's still four weeks to this referendum and we are going to show that Australians support Yes when we get to the counting of the vote on the 14th of October. We had the No campaign on full display today, with Warren Mundine on Insiders showing that the No campaign has no solutions. The No campaign has no answers. The No campaign talks about wanting to get practical improvement. The No campaign should be voting Yes if they want practical improvement in the lives of Aboriginal people because that's what this referendum is about. It's about getting practical outcomes. We know that we will get practical outcomes with a Voice.
