The 12th to the 16th of November will see Brisbane playing host to the G20 Summit. Leaders from the world’s richest economies will be meeting on Jaggera country to discuss how best to control the world and destroy indigenous lands and resources for profit. Australia is among the 20, taking its place as one of the most economically rich countries in the world while the living conditions and quality of life for its First Nations people rank among the lowest in the world.
The 40th Anniversary of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy represented a coming together of several generations of Aboriginal activists with non-Aboriginal solidarity. The anniversary connected people in a way not seen since the 1982 Commonwealth Games protest. The G20 Summit is another chance for a week of Aboriginal unity. It is time for us to come together as a network of strong Aboriginal nations sharing ideas, perspectives and solutions to the myriad of struggles we face under colonisation.
The Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy will be boycotting the G20 Summit, which will be taking place on stolen aboriginal land. We want decolonisation to be recognised as a priority and added to the agenda as a political reality.
Musgrave Park has been declared a zone for peaceful protest during the G20 Summit. Prior to invasion, Musgrave was home to the Kalperum-Jaggin people and is a part of Kurilpa ‘place of the water rats’. The park has been an important meeting place for First Nations people since time began as it still is today. We ask all attendees to respect Jaggera Law in this historically significant meeting place and the Brisbane Aboriginal Sovereign Embassy sacred fire.
We welcome cooperation from the general community, activist groups, unions and elsewhere. We aspire to develop a united community front which fully recognises the need to decolonise.
This page has been created to raise funds to facilitate the coming together of Indigenous nations from so-called Australia, and around the world. Funds will assist with travel cost of delegates from across the continent, as well as the day to day expenses of the week long gathering.
Please support Indigenous nations of Australia and the world in our struggle for land rights, sovereignty and decolonisation.
