Triple J radio shocks listeners with an hour-long Voice protest stunt after the referendum was resoundingly defeated

An defiant ABC radio host has responded to the rejection of an Aboriginal Voice to Parliament by playing an iconic Australian protest song for an hour.

Corey Webster, whose Blak Out show plays only indigenous music on national youth radio network Triple J used his Sunday night slot to play Yothu Yindi’s Treaty on a continuous loop.

Before he did so Mr Webster delivered a fiery speech saying Indigenous people ‘ain’t licking our wounds today, we’re sharpening our spears.’

Australia resoundingly voted No to the proposed change to the constitution, with every state rejecting the proposal and only the ACT voting Yes.

Mr Webster, a rapper who performs and hosts as Nooky, and a proud Yuin & Thunghutti man from the NSW South Coast, gave a passionate explanation for his decision to repeat the tune.

‘We did not give up this land and the planting of the Union Jack never changed our law at all and it’s that message of hope and survival that you’re gonna hear for the next hour.

‘And trust, it isn’t a mistake. We’re gonna repeat this message until it rings true.

‘We will not sit in silence. They will hear us as we rejoice as a people and light our sacred fire in the face of their broken promises. Treaty now.’

Webster opened his show with a spine-tingling monologue in which he reflected on the personal impact on him and his family.
