Australia changes National Anthem wording

Australia amended its national anthem to remove reference to the country being “young and free” amid calls to recognise that its Indigenous people.

The change to “for we are one and free” took effect on Friday.

The idea to change the wording was floated in 2020 by New South Wales premier Gladys Berejiklian who had said the current wording ignored Australia’s “proud First Nations culture”.
