THE FOLLOWING statement is attributable to Roy Ah-See on behalf of the Uluru Dialogue.
“Australians have woken to news today that the NO campaigners are taking them for mugs.
“In one of the most un-Australian acts in political history, the NO campaign has admitted to a strategy of lies, lies and more lies.
“The Australian people are being taken for mugs by the NO campaign in a tactic that is distinctly un-Australian: they are telling their campaign workers to be dishonest to Aussies, stay anonymous and not identify themselves as belonging to the NO campaign.
“And they expressly teach their volunteers to lead with fear, not facts, creating doubt by throwing around concerns about issues which they have merely “heard” about and which are not what Australians will be voting on.
“Is there any worse insult than discrediting the intelligence of our fellow citizens?
“Their strategy is to incite fear and lies, while the YES campaign believes in the best of our fellow Australians.
“The NO campaign has no interest in running a fair and open conversation, just like they have no interest in improving the lives of First Nations Peoples and all Australians. They have no solutions or alternatives. The NO campaign seeks to entrench the same old policy failures that haven't improved the lives of Indigenous Australians for decades.
“We call on all Australians to recognise the NO campaign’s tactics for what they are: designed to deceive and mislead.”
