Backlash over young girl’s anthem protest

A school girl from Brisbane was given a lunchtime detention on Friday as a consequence of her protests over not standing for and singing the national anthem. The school girl believes the anthem is “wrong” because it does not acknowledge Indigenous culture in Australia. The protest earned an extraordinary attack from Senator Hanson, who posted a video on social media calling for the “brainwashed brat” to be kicked out of school. We spoke to Dr Mark Williams from RMIT university to discuss more on this story.
