Freedom Movement

They gathered at the Old Bungalow at Mparntwe (Alice Springs) from across the continent and for two days in the centre of this continent, those at the Freedom Summit spoke of the continuing tragedies and attacks against their people and of the ways forward. A delegation of 20 was endorsed by the Freedom Summit to mobilise around it the First Peoples of this continent to stand up united and reclaim the “Aboriginal Rights Struggle”. In the meantime, the Federal Government has responded to the Summit’s organisers with the offer of a meeting. But on January 26, the delegation will converge on Canberra – and begin a sit-in right outside Parliament. Thousands will join them, and in so doing, so will the world’s press (The Stringer – 2014)

Canberra Tent Embassy…Founded on January 26, 1972

Ningla A-Na

A rare addition to the study of Australian History. Made in 1972, this documentary records the events surrounding the establishment of the Aboriginal tent embassy on the lawns of Parliament House. It incorporates interviews with black activists, the work of the National Black Theatre, Aboriginal Legal Service and Aboriginal Medical Service, plus footage from the demonstrations and arrests at the embassy. This is the only film to focus on the tent embassy and is an historic document, integral to comprehension of the Aboriginal political struggle. Erection of the tent embassy on the lawns of Parliament is the most symbolic action ever taken by Aboriginal people in their struggle for justice in their own land. Ningla A-Na presents an inside view of Aboriginal political life. A film which should be seen by all Australians.
