Bronwyn Sindel, Mullumbimby
I would like to pay tribute to Mungo MacCallum and his work and passion for Indigenous rights.
I first met Mungo at one of our very first get togethers as Women for Wik, I would think probably in 1998.
Mungo was there as an advocate for ANTaR (Australians for Native Title and Reconciliation) and from that first meeting attended many of our early meetings.
The last time I saw Mungo was at the gathering we had at Brunswick Heads supporting Thomas Mayor and his mission to promote and explain in detail all points relating to the Uluru Statement from the Heart and the Makarrata, which he explained as ‘the culmination of our agenda: the coming together after a struggle’.
Go in peace Mungo – and heartfelt condolences to Jenny and all the family.
