This year we’ll be highlighting the 50th Anniversary of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy, one of the world's longest continuing protest sites, occupying the lawns of what is now Old Parliament House since 1972, protesting the conditions relating to Aboriginal People across Australia such as Land Rights, Truth and Reparatory Justice.
