Program Title: WINGS #43-17 Invasion Day - Australia
Description: On January 26, 2018, an official Australian holiday, some 60,000 people marched in Melbourne protesting the celebration of a day that began the genocidal assaults on the aboriginal people of the continent, who are still suffering racist official policies today. The march was organized by young black women.
Host(s): Jiselle Hanna, Frieda Werden
Featured Speakers/Guests: Aunty Jenny Munro, elder activist and founder of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy; Meriki Kalinya, a Gunnai-Gunditjmara woman and one of the convenors of the Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance, a grassroots activist group that organized the march; Dtarneen Onus-Williams, a professional community organizer and the chair of the rally; Ruby, "the smartest woman you'll ever meet," who reads her "Letter to White People"; and 17-year-old Aretha Brown, the first female elected Prime Minister of the National Indigenous Youth Parliament.
