Some intitiatives came out of this years invasion day in Brisbane.

  1. Firstly Murris elders have authorised the recovery of aboriginal  remains from the Queensalnd Museum and all other museums where sacred aboriginal remains lie so that they can be returned to their people and properly buried according to customary law. This will begin on Wednesday 2 February 2011. Details to be announced. ‘We know why we are here’ – Bob Weatherall, Chair, Kamilaroi Land Trust
  2. One other was a call by representatives of the Saunders family for people to come to the court on Monday 7 February to make sure that justice is carried out in the trial of those accused of the murder of Richard Saunders.

One thought on “Invasion Day 2011

  1. The first ARC meeting of the year will be next Monday 31 January 6.30pm at the Trades and Labour Council building 16 Peel St South Brisbane.

    It would be great to see all those involved with the ARC and the Students for Indigenous Rights groups at UQ and QUT to attend. Last year went really well for the campaign with the establishment of the student collectives and some successful public meetings as well as our involvement in national protest actions. Next Monday we’ll be having discussion around what initiatives we can take over the coming weeks and year both on and off the campuses in terms of public meetings, guest speakers and protest actions. There’s plenty to talk about. See you there!

    Cheers
