Last year Fremantle was the first council in Australia to not celebrate Invasion Day on January 26. Instead they hosted an event on another day called "One Day in Fremantle". Hear the voices of grassroot activists and Aboriginal leaders at the event including Unlce Ben Taylor, Dylan Voller and Socialist Alliance Fremantle councilor Sam Wainwright among others.

NOWSA, or the Network of Women Students Australia, holds a conference every year dedicated to women’s activism. More than 160 students from across Australia gathered last month for its national conference in Perth, making it the biggest NOWSA conference in many years.

The weeklong event from July 14 to 18 took place at Edith Cowan University. It featured a range of workshops and speakers, who focused on issues relating to racism, trans rights and sex worker rights.
