Submission re Batman Electorate Name Change

We have provided a submission to the Australian Electoral Commission's Redistribution Committee in support of the proposed name change of the Federal electorate of Batman to Simon Wonga.  The role Simon Wonga played as ngurungaeta, demonstrating leadership, vision and courage to improve conditions for the Wurundjeri people, is deserving of recognition.   Furthermore this change will provide greater recognition and respect for Traditional Owners and honour Simon Wonga’s unique place in Australian history.
