Quaden Bayles' sister Guyala Bayles will not support Voice to Parliament trends now
An Indigenous model has revealed why she won't support Anthony Albanese's Voice to Parliament in a scathing poem as she slams the government as 'illegitimate'.
Guyala Bayles, a proud Birri Gubba and Wonnarua woman, wrote and performed the moving poem for National Indigenous Television earlier this week.
The model and Aboriginal activist is the older sister of Quaden Bayles, who touched Australians' hearts after being bullied for his dwarfism.
'We only make up 3.5 per cent of Australia's population, and I don't want non-indigenous people making decisions for me,' she said.
'Because if the government really wanted to help don't you think it would look a little differently?
'We've been marching for our rights, fighting for justice, demanding land back and for our water to be protected.
'Do you think they ever listened or took any action?'
Ms Bayles said the Voice to Parliament is not the solution.
'It's gonna set our mob back like past constitutions,' she said.
'I feel like this could be another one of their illusions to cover up their wrong-doings and distract us yet again.
'Let's not forget that there are still over 500 Aboriginal deaths in custody and not one conviction.
'Our mob already have a voice, but who's listening? Obviously falling on deaf ears.'
