This day, the 3nd anniversary of the national apology there will be a protest against the ongoing Northern Territory Intervention and for Aboriginal Rights.

Nothing but broken promises!

Time to expose the Intervention for what it is really about!

Racism is not a special measure

Enough is enough! Spread the word; take a stand so the lucky country down under has equal rights

Share the Spirit will showcase some Victoria's finest Indigenous talent as well as interstate guests all of whom will entertain in the true spirit of reconciliation.

Taking place every year on Australia Day Share the Spirit has been created by Aboriginal people for all Australians to come together and celebrate the countrys Indigenous culture through music, performance workshops, information stalls, and most importantly through personal exchanges between Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people.
