Yes from Yamba sends a big signal from Pilot Hill

Last Sunday, a crowd 200 gathered for the ‘Yes from Yamba’ walk, with a photoshoot and peaceful picnic on Pilot Hill. The event was held for all those who support the Voice to Parliament – and those who still have questions about the proposal – to share, to welcome and to listen.

People came from all over the Clarence Valley and as far as Woolgoolga to attend the festive gathering.

After the short walk up to the Yamba lighthouse, the participants enjoyed live didgeridoo music by DJ Eamens and pre-recorded music from pro-Voice musicians by TLCfm’s Captain Fantastic, Graeme East. 

The highlight of the event was the photoshoot of the crowd in a Yes shape, which is Ngii in the local Yaygirr language. 

Voters will be asked to vote ‘yes’ or ‘no’ on a single question. The question on the ballot paper will be: “A Proposed Law: to alter the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing an Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice. Do you approve this proposed alteration?”
