Aboriginal summit: “Be prepared for the fight of your life”

Goodooga, northwest NSW, 16 January 2010 - - Euahlayi activist Michael Anderson says people coming to the three-day Aboriginal summit in Canberra two weeks from now should “be prepared for the fight of your life”.

“This will be heated and furious because when people are hurting they will not hold back. (But) it is important to understand that it is the system that we have to fight, not each other,” the veteran campaigner for Aboriginal rights says in a media release.
