Sydney protest against threat to close WA Aboriginal communities

Issue 

Land rights activists gathered outside the New South Wales Parliament — on the land of the Gaddigal people — today to protest against the closure and removal of services of remote Western Australian Aboriginal communities.

Redfern Tent Embassy residents and activists, Greens MLC David Shoebridge and members of the Socialist Alliance came to show solidarity with communities which are facing permanent closure of their communities on which they have lived for many thousands of years.

One activist speaking said to the crowd: "We will be serving Tony Abbott with an eviction notice for occupying our sovereign land — land which was stolen."
