‘One And Free’: Prominent Australian Lawmaker Urges Change To National Anthem

Australia should change the lyrics of its national anthem to honour its indigenous people, the leader of the country’s most populous state said on Wednesday, becoming one of the most prominent lawmakers to endorse such an alteration.

Australia’s national anthem includes the line “we are young and free”. But New South Wales state Premier Gladys Berejiklian said this should be changed to “we are one and free” as it fails to recognise that indigenous Australians are the oldest continued civilization in the world.
