Aboriginal elders ‘break silence’ on Fremantle Australia Day saga

Mr Eggington said Aboriginal leaders remained silent until now for one main reason… no one in the media bothered to seek them out.

“I think it’s been disgusting the mainstream media sought out Aboriginal people in government-appointed positions like Robert Isaacs (Aboriginal elder) and Ben Wyatt (Labor spokesperson for Aboriginal Affairs) for comment, instead of the people that represent the grass roots advocacy of Aboriginal people,” he said.

“We represent the unheard, silent voice.”
