Bishops & Religious Stand Up for Indigenous Rights
In a show of solidarity with Indigenous Australians, the Australian Catholic Bishops Conference and Catholic Religious Australia have issued a joint statement criticising legislation that would continue to undermine the human rights of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in Australia’s Northern Territory. Their call for deeper consultation with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people about laws and policies which affect them is grounded in the principle of subsidiarity.
