Public forum: Fireworks and uprisings - confronting the legacy of colonialisation (Thurs 29 Sept)


Fireworks and Uprisings: Confronting the legacy of colonisation

Fremantle City Council recently voted to cancel their annual fireworks event for January 26 in recognition that for Aboriginal peoples and supporters the day marks the beginning of invasion, and consequent violence and dispossession.

The ongoing closure of Aboriginal communities, Aboriginal impoverishment and deaths in custody testify to the continued reality of violence to the present day.

Join us as we hear from Noongar activists and elected council members of the significance of the Council's decision, and how else we can fight for Aboriginal rights today.

Guest speakers:
Robert Eggington
Marianne Mackay
Mervyn Eades
