Deb Jones, 2015
We acknowledge the traditional owners of this land
The Gadigal and Wangal of the nation of Eora
And other first Australians who've made this place their home
And any actions done in our name that had them leave the land that's in their bones
With things done in our name they left the land that's in their bones.
We acknowledge the traditional custodians of this land
The ones the country walks in; the holders of the stories
We pay respect to elders past and present, and all indigenous here
We pay our respects
We acknowledge injustices done in our name
Was, is, always will be
We are more than sorry
We will speak out. We will speak out. We will speak out
We will speak. We will not turn, No!
We acknowledge this land is Aboriginal Land!
