Help us organise the National Day of Protest

Exciting news for the campaign!

Gary Foley, a legend of Aboriginal rights activism, has agreed to support the National Day of Protest against the racist NT Intervention. Gary Foley will be speaking at the rally on Friday, 29 October 2010, 5.30pm at the State Library of Victoria (cnr Swanston and Lt La Trobe Streets).

We encourage anyone interested in achieving justice for Aboriginal people in this country to support their local action. Currently, there are actions planned in Alice Springs, Sydney and Melbourne (note: the Melbourne protest has shifted dates and now ALL PROTESTS around the country will be taking place on 29 October 2010).

Not only does MAIC want you to come to the rally, we want you to tell as many people as you can about it. And if you are especially committed and have the time--we would love you to join us at the organising meetings (every Monday, 6.30pm at Trades Hall).
