Minyung Woolah Binnung is a poetry book by Lionel Fogarty

Lionel Fogarty is a fighter for social justice.

Burragubba I have heard him speak strongly for many years. He has campaigned like all the others: Sam Watson, Coco Wharton, Dennis Walker, Les Malezer , Bob Weatherall, Vanessa Fisher, Auntie Jean, Lilla Watson, Maureen Watson, Don Brady, Oogeroo, Adrian and Linda Burragubba, Charlie Perkins, Neville Bonner along with the Musgrave Park people, the Jagera Cultural Association, and the Brisbane Blacks since I can remember attending Land Rights rallies as far back as the early 1970s.

I have heard his poems and songs on the street against the Queensland Acts, our colonialist governments and their settler state.

Lionel was born in 1957, he is a Yugambeh man and their land stretches far and wide around the south east corner of Queensland [shown below].

I took the picture of Yugambeh land from the Mistake Mountains [sic] near Cunningham’s Gap.

Yugambeh land forms the banner of BushTelegraph as a mark of respect for this tribe and the other Murri clans in the place where we live.image

White settlement in Australia has lasted only 8 generations (200 years ÷ 25 years).

Aboriginal settlement in ‘Terra Nullius’ (sic) has lasted more than 1,600 generations (40,000 years ÷ 25 years).

Sorrow for aboriginal dispossession is not enough.

Aboriginal people must have land rights and the economic ability to live in the land.
