Stolenwealth Games

Help 3CR send a team of broadcasters to the Stolenwealth Games Protest April 4 - 15 2018, Queensland. We have 30 Limited Edition ‘Divine Intervention’ prints signed by Robbie Thorpe and Tom Civil. The “Divine Intervention” fire crest was a collaboration between Robbie Thorpe and Tom Civil in 2006 in the lead up to the  Melbourne Commonwealth (Stolenwealth) Games, and the Queen's visit. The crest symbolises the acknowledgement of Indigenous Law in Australia. Lightening strikes, igniting Indigenous Law represented by fire amongst the wattle branches, and in turn freeing the kangaroo and emu from their place in the 'Australian Coat of Arms'. The kangaroo and the emu then warm themselves by the fire. We are selling these limited edition screen prints for $100. We also have T-shirts $25 and tote bags for $20 each. So come down to the station during business hours and get some beautiful art and support an important project.

The 26th of January marks the anniversary of the invasion of this continent, the start of a genocide that Aboriginal people continue to face, and the Aboriginal resistance that continues today. Invasion Day is a time to protest for land rights, sovereignty and self-determination for all Aboriginal people. This year we mark Invasion Day with 6 hours of special programming from 10am – 4 pm on Friday 26th January. At 10 am we'll bring you Yarra Elders Precious Memories - a portion of the many significant and important elders in the community whose stories are yet to be heard. We’ll cross live to the rally that begins on the steps of Victorian Parliament at 11am followed by an afternoon of deadly music, First Nations voices and updates from actions all across the land.
