Aboriginal Rights Coalition Speak Out and Concert - Redfern August 16

Sam Watson and Pat Eatock are long-time Aboriginal activists. Rosalyn Frith brings from the NT not only her own history of resistance to the NT intervention and in other struggles, but her grandfather’s role in sparking the modern land rights movement in the 1960s. This is a chance to hear her that is not to be missed.
