This is Our Land
The British settlers took our land. No treaties were signed with the tribes. Today we are REFUGEES.
Refugees in the country of our ancestors. We live in REFUGEE CAMPS – without land, without employment, without justice.
The British Crown signed TREATIES with the MAORIS in New Zealand and the Indians in North America.
We appeal to the Queen to help us, the Aboriginal people of Australia.
We need land rights and political representation now. SIGNED:
