Freedom Fighters Commemorated

On 20 January 1842 Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner - two Indigenous freedom fighters - were executed on the corner of Bowen and Franklin Streets in Melbourne. A quarter of Victoria's white population came in carnival mood to see the killings. Join us on Friday 20 January from 12 noon to 1pm for a live broadcast to commemorate the execution of Tunnerminnerwait and Maulboyheenner and to call for the creation of a significant monument on the site they were executed.
