The Gurindji Strike (or Wave Hill Walk-off) was one of Australia's most protracted and significant industrial disputes.
40 years ago, Gurindji stockmen and their families fought for decent pay and conditions on Wave Hill Station, leading to a national movement for fair wages for Indigenous Australians. The strike grew into a fight for land rights, culminating in the Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act 1976, and Gough Whitlam's famous land handback to Vincent Lingiari.
We are proud to be joined by Kevin Tory and Celeste Liddle to remember this important historic event. Kevin Tory is a long time Indigenous rights and union activist who was involved first hand in the MUA effort to support the Wave Hill Strikers.
