Sydney’s Indigenous Social Justice Association (ISJA) says it will hold a ceremony in Redfern to give out Aboriginal passports to supporters. The ceremony will hand the passports to migrants, refugees and Australian citizens who want to give their support to Aboriginal justice.

Refugees will receive the passports for free. Others who want a passport will need to bring a passport photo and pay a $10 fee.

Ray Jackson, ISJA spokesperson said: “Aboriginal passports are recognising the Australian government has no legitimacy. The passport says we recognise the Aboriginal people are the legitimate owners of the land.”

The ceremony will take place from 11am on August 11 at the Redfern Community Centre.
