As we gather our thoughts and emotions following the referendum, we wanted to take a moment to express our heartfelt gratitude for your unwavering support throughout this journey.

While we are disappointed with the result it is important to remember our efforts have not been in vain. We believe every step we take in this journey brings us closer to a more inclusive and just society.

In light of this, CASSE will recognise a week of silence. This moment will be for us to pause, and to mourn the missed opportunity for true reconciliation.

We understand sometimes, during moments of reflection, there may be need to talk and share. I want to reassure all our friends that we remain committed to being here for you. If you or anyone feel the need to speak to someone at CASSE during this week of silence or beyond please reach out. Our doors, whether physical or virtual are always open to you.

Together we will continue to work towards a brighter future where every voice is acknowledged and respected

Thank you again for your support.

The CASSE Team ❤️💛🖤

I'm seeing people talk about how the aboriginal women didn't get any help with domestic violence and being ignored by the police. Thats exactly what Craig San Rouge did to me. He ignored a pregnant woman being abused by his partner and watched me being stitched up and being violently beaten throughout my pregnancy. He heard my pleads to the man who had my baby and was going to take her life but him and his white woman ignored our cries for help. I was beaten so badly that I list the lasy child I've ever carried and pulled it out of the toilet but that psychologist did not help me. When he ran he slept with that white woman who then got jealous of me after my ex nearly killed me, all this to steal our work from the Cook family. Craig san Rouge and Jude Prichard along with Spencers live off the Cook families back. Fck you ugly looking thief Kenneth, you been helping him

Fck the referendum, fck the voice it wasn't for my people, they stole those signatures just like you stole my parents life work you useless ugly mutt Kenneth.
