We hear part 2 of the speeches at a rally called by Djab wurrung women to defend sacred land on September 10 in Melbourne.
The fight to defend sacred Djab wurrung landscapes near Ararat, Victoria, from destruction by the Andrews state Labor government heated up after a Djab wurrung heritage protection embassy established in June 2018. The road remains highly contested despite a small mediation agreement for part of the route. We hear from Lidia Thorpe, singer Yirgjhilya Lawrie, Tarneen Onus-Williams, Meriki Onus and Arika Onus.
We also hear Apryl Watson speak at the rally, linking to the campaign for justice for Yorta Yorta woman Tanya Day, who died after injuries in police custody in late 2017. Check out Justice for Tanya Day - Remember Her Name.
