'Being Free is Being Black'!

Most important at this rally on Invasion Day was the defining speech at parliament house by Coco Wharton of what it is to be an aboriginal person. Coco laid out the lore:

"The first law is to your people, then your countrymen and only then to the Australian flag and what it represents."

He exposed the 'gatekeepers', Marcia Langton, Pat Dodson, Galarrwuy Yunupingu, Noel Pearson, Lowitja ODonohue and the like.

They are meddling in other peoples affairs. He said that dont be black when you want to be black, be black when you have to be black.

He talked about the interference of the Lord Mayor, Campbell Newman, who refused the Murris permission to march over the Victoria Street Bridge while at the same time allowing 20,000 people to march over the Victoria Street bridge for the Australia Day march.

We marched down George Street and across the bridge anyway. We outnumbered the police 50 to 1.

Several other issues were addressed at the rally. Aboriginal representation in the parliament, the needs of young Murris, and the murder of Mulrunji Doomadgee by Snr Sgt Hurley.
