The members of the Shoalhaven Alliance for Yes23 group reside in the lands of the Jerrinja, Wandi Wandandian, Wodi Wodi and Yuin First Nations peoples; speakers of the Dharawal and Dhurga languages.

We acknowledge the traditional custodians of these lands. We honour and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and emerging; and to their Ancestors who have walked this country since the creation of time. We recognise their continuing connection -both physical and spiritual- to the land, sea, culture and community.

Another weekly stall at Jellybean Park. 
Low key today, not dressed in yes t shirts but wearing yes badges and handing out yes material. 
Good conversations with Indigenous and Non Indigenous people. 
On one occasion I was able to correct the “I don't think Council should be paying for the yes flags. They should have No flags as well”. 
I took a deep breath.  “Ok” I said:
The council didn't pay for the YES flags, I was one of the donors along with many other local people who paid for those. None of that came from council revenue. As to No flags, they can raise money if they want and purchase their own material
(reported by the amazing Julie Hopkins, President of Unions Shoalhaven)
