The Sydney rally was not part of the main campaign against the project, but was organized in collaboration with Australian pro-Putin activist Simeon Boikov, “”Australian Cossack“.

Aborigines, who represent less than 4% of Australia’s population 200 years after British colonisation, statistically have shorter life expectancies and less education than their compatriots. But a proposed constitutional review aimed at giving Aboriginal people more say in policies affecting their communities appears to be in trouble: recent polls show around 60% of Australians oppose the reform, compared with 40% in favor. The situation has reversed compared to last year. Opponents say it would provide benefits to Aboriginal people while adding unnecessary bureaucracy. They also complain of a lack of transparency in the implementation of the reform.
