Very sad to learn of the passing of Australia’s great former Prime Minister, Gough Whitlam, who pioneered reforms in Aboriginal rights, multiculturalism, university education and healthcare. Before Whitlam, education was for the rich.
A personal message from Aminah:
“I met him once in Sydney. I walked up to him, shook his hand and said, “You’re the reason I could go to university.” It felt good to be able to thank him. Rest in peace, Uncle Gough.”
