Nathan Cleary has become the latest celebrity to support the Voice to Parliament referendum.

“No voice, no choice. Go Australia. Vote yes,” Cleary said.
Cleary is seen in the video wearing a t-shirt in the same colors of the Aboriginal flag accompanied by the logo: “We support the Uluru declaration”.
The 25-year-old then gives the camera a thumbs up.
The video was accompanied by the caption: “Vote YES”. What a dead legend!

Cleary is the latest high-profile celebrity to back the Yes campaign after John Farnham allowed his hit song ‘You’re the Voice’ to be used in one of his adverts.
The advert features a family watching iconic moments in Australian history on TV, such as Cathy Freeman winning gold at the 2000 Olympics.
This is the first time Farnham has allowed his song to be used for political purposes, with the singer remaining aloof from political and social issues throughout his career.
Other Australian moments featured in the two-minute advert with the song as the soundtrack are Kevin Rudd’s apology for Stolen Generation, John Howard’s gun reforms after the Port Arthur massacre and the adoption of same-sex marriage in 2016.
It also includes the government’s return of Uluru to its traditional owners in 1985, Australia’s America’s Cup victory in 1983, and the Eddie Mabo-led trial in 1992 that paved the way for land rights indigenous.
