Clare Land on Decolonizing Solidarity: Book LaunchThursday, 3 September 2015 - 6:30pm
Readings Carlton, 309 Lygon St, CarltonVictoria
Decolonizing Solidarity: Dilemmas and Directions for Supporters of Indigenous Struggles provides an urgently needed new framework for action by non-Indigenous people in support of Indigenous struggles. In the book, Melbourne activist and author Clare Land synthesises and presents, for the first time, the wisdom and challenges of Aboriginal people from the Land Rights movement in southeast Australia, and the reflections of their supporters.
The lingering injustices of colonisation and the need for a fresh approach are nowhere better reflected than in the Fourth World conditions, morbidity and mortality of Indigenous people in settler nations. Now more than ever, Indigenous people are aware of the need to garner critically informed support.
Decolonizing Solidarity will be launched by Gary Foley, who wrote the foreword to the book. Foley says, “I would strongly recommend this as a book that will assist in developing a better understanding among all people who might work in association with Indigenous peoples".
