South Australia

Why Celebrate on Mabo Day June 3

When Australia was invaded and colonised on the 26th January 1788, the British colonisers acted as if this land was uninhabited. Over forty thousand years of civilisation was swept aside in an orgy of destruction that resulted in the violent dispossession of people who had a long and fruitful association with the land.

For 204 years the legal fiction of TERRA NULLIUS - the land of no one, was used to legally reward the murderers who colonised this land although the original inhabitants had never ceded sovereignty.

A fair media - let no threat get in the way

‚ÄúIt is not enough for journalists to see themselves as mere messengers without understanding the hidden agendas of the message and the myths that surround it,‚ÄĚ said John Pilger.

Seasoned journalist Kate McClymont delivered a speech, now widely referred to as the ‚ÄėWhere angels fear to tread‚Äô speech, at the Australian Press Freedom Dinner in early May. The event was hosted by the Media, Entertainment & Arts Alliance and the Walkley Foundation for Journalism.
