Cassy O'Connor MP | Greens Leader
(Please check against delivery)
We meet on the land of an ancient and noble people, land that was taken from them with terrible violence and trickery on the part of the men who came before us.
We do well to remind ourselves often that this land – lutruwita/Tasmania – was never ceded by its original owners.
On behalf of the Tasmanian Greens MPs, I pay respect to the palawa/pakana people of Tasmania, to their treasured elders, past and present.
