Aboriginal Tent Embassy: A powerful beacon of agitation for 50 years

Fifty years ago, four men migrated to Australia’s capital and set up a beach umbrella with a sign marked

“Aboriginal embassy”.

Their protest grew quickly to shove Aboriginal engagement into wider public attention.

Today, the Aboriginal Tent Embassy still remains a powerful symbol of protest in Canberra.

A warning to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander viewers: this video contains images of people who may have died.
