By Estee Katz

We had a long discussion on if it seems right if your great grandfather was aboriginal the special rights but if your great grandmother was not then you would not be granted those rights, which is the current law. In discussing this we continuously went back to the constitution of right section 15 and section 1. Our second speakers were a man and a women who do what my father does which is deal with government law.
