Dr Gregory Phillips

An Aboriginal Australian Republic

Gregory proposes a radical shift in thinking - Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Peoples are in fact at the forefront of global social and environmental sustainability, intellectual prowess, artistic meaning and creative beauty. What can other Australians learn from them? What is an Australian? Who is sovereign in Australia? How might we build a Republic and great southern land which we can be proud of?
