Land rights de­ci­sion

The Australian Women's Weekly - - Scholarship -

Named after Ed­die Mabo, the Tor­res Strait Is­lander who chal­lenged the Aus­tralian le­gal sys­tem and fought for the right of In­dige­nous Aus­tralian peo­ple to be ac­knowl­edged as the tra­di­tional own­ers of their land, the 1992 Mabo de­ci­sion was a water­shed moment and led to the Na­tive Ti­tle Act.

In 1964 there was only one band in the world, and that was The Bea­tles. When the “fab four” (left) landed in Syd­ney they were greeted by hordes of scream­ing teenagers and mass hys­te­ria at their con­certs.
