Session 1: On Stolen Lands: First Nations struggles for rights and justice
Moderator: Bob Boughton
Panelists: Ann Curthoys,Thomas Mayor, Teela Reid
This is the description of the event:
"SEARCH Foundation is co-hosting with the NSW State Library a one-day series of six one-hour online forums to commemorate the Centenary of the founding of the Communist Party of Australia in October 1920. These six forums will cover six ‘snapshots’ of key movements in which communists worked with many others to achieve progressive reforms and radical social change around major issues of the times.
The sessions will examine the history and contribution of communists to Australian political and cultural life, but also discuss relevance of their struggles to today. A wide range of activists will take part in the panels for each session, including an activist involved in the current movements."
This first session covered the Party's involvement in the struggle for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander rights, and the relevance of that to today's struggle.
