This is a poetry book by Lionel Fogarty
I have heard him speak strongly for many years.
I have heard his poems and songs on the street against colonialist governments and their settler state.
Lionel is a Yugambeh man and his 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 Cunnignham’s Gap.
White settlement in Australia since 1788 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.
