A referendum to recognise First Nations Australians in Australia's Constitution by establishing a Voice to Parliament will be held later this year. The Voice would be an advisory body allowing Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people to make representations to parliament and government on matters that affect them.
Campaigning for the "yes" and "no" sides is well under way. However, misinformation and disinformation are a feature of some of the public discussion. Indigenous Australians Minister Linda Burney this week even accused the "no" campaign of engaging in "post-truth politics".
