Aboriginal embassy set up to reclaim Redfern Block

Saturday, May 31, 2014

An Aboriginal tent embassy was set up on May 26 to reclaim the historic Redfern Block.

Veteran Aboriginal activist Jenny Munro says the Block is Aboriginal land and the Aboriginal Housing Company was wrong to clear the Aboriginal residents out of it and open it to greedy developers.

The tent embassy is steadily growing in size and the call is out for solidarity. Drop in, show your solidarity and see what you can do to help. An "Abbott-proof fence" is going to be built on the site, embassy activists said.
