Lets Go !!! Eddie Mabo Eddie Mabo and the 'Mabo Decision' of 1992 are significant in the Aboriginal struggle for land rights as this
represented the first time native title was recognised legally in Australia. What issues did the 1967 referendum address? What is a referendum? When Australia federated in 1901, Section 51 of the constitution allowed the Commonwealth of Australia to make laws for the people of Australia... other than the Aboriginal race in any state. What did this mean? It meant that control of Aboriginal Australians were given to the individual states. This often meant that Aboriginals had
what little rights they did have denied to them from one state to another. The 1967 Referendum Was a vote to include Aboriginal People in the Census This was important as it passed control of
Aboriginal affairs from state to federal control This meant that important laws and policies
such as 'native title' and health and education
could now be made for ALL Aboriginal peoples. Freedom Rides The 'freedom rides' were a protest that
brought issues of discrimination to the
attention of the Australian nation. Following the model of the United States
'freedom rides' University students from Sydney organised a protest ride to remote
country towns to protest against 'segregation'. Reconciliation Challenge the marriage convention Family Planning legal abortion Contraception Equality in the workplace End abuse & Sexual harassment What did women want? EQuality! * nO fAULT DIVORCE
