8:10AM Update from the First Nations Constitutional Recognition Summit happening at Uluru. The summit is set to discuss Constitutional Recognition - which many indigenous Australians see as purely symbolic, communities are more interested in a TREATY. Also on the table for discussion is Commonwealth powers to make special laws for 'any race'. 3CR's Gilla McGuiness spoke to Blak Blocks Viv Malo yesterday who was joined by Michael Mansell and Robbie Thorpe - delegates at the meeting.
