Timeless Time

“Until we give back to the black man just a bit of the land that was his and give it back without provisos, without strings to snatch it back, without anything but complete generosity of spirit in concession for the evil we have done to him – until we do that, we shall remain what we have always been so far: a people without integrity, not a nation, but a community of thieves.” The words of [Australian writer] Xavier Herbert, 1978, over an aboriginal flag in which black represents the people, yellow the sun, and red, the earth. An unknown (please get in touch) piece of aboriginal art forms the main panel. Here is a timeline of the fight for indigenous rights in Australia. Ludlow Square, Belfast
