In this episode of Living the Dream Dave (@withsobersenses) chats with Camilla and Eliza from Sovereignty Solidarity.

Sovereignty Solidarity describes their Facebook page as follows:

‘We aim to support First Nations(FN) initiatives for self determination, sovereignty, treaties, and moving forward. We take action based on our understanding of these perspectives and aim to concretely support FN initiatives. We are a non-FN specific page because we believe non-FN  peoples have specific de-colonisation work that we need to do, and that the burden for this should be placed on FN peoples. We welcome input, criticism and support from FN people’

Camilla and Eliza have provided the following relevant links:

Eliza would like the following qualification added to the title and the podcast: ‘sometimes dominant society needs a slap in the face, like on the 26th January, but sometimes dominant society needs a more gentle-gentle approach. Learning about the history of this country, the legacy of colonialism and our transplanted place on this land can be a hard journey and if people need empathy through this process it is other non FN people who should do this work.’
