30th Anniversary Commonwealth Games Protests 1982

In 1982, First Nations people from across the country converged on Brisbane to protest the Commonwealth Games, demand recognition of Aboriginal Land Rights and demonstrate against the Queensland Government’s oppressive Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Protection Act.

The Brisbane Indigenous Media Association (BIMA) produced this documentary on this landmark in the political struggle of First Nations peoples.

This documentary is dedicated to our honourable ancestor, Ross Watson (1944 - 2013)
