Hi folks,

Happy Christmas and a fantastic new year. Please look at the following: http://www.aboriginaltentembassy.net/. If you can go and visit, please do.

Meanwhile the Awaye podcast have a podcast on this. See below:
"Saturday 10 December 2011
Since the Aboriginal Tent Embassy was first erected in front of what is now Old Parliament House in Canberra on the 26th of January 1972 it has been a source of inspiration and controversy. As the Tent Embassy approaches its 40th anniversary, key activists of 1972 have come together for a symposium to examine its historical significance. The Aboriginal Tent Embassy has been the catalyst for other protest 'embassies' around Australia, most recently the Tent Embassy at the site of the proposed Kimberley gas hub marking 100 days of a community blockade. But what is the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in the national capital today, who resides there and what does it stand for?"

I wish you happiness for the new year.

Dan
