In memory of the Wave Hill Walk Off

This week marks the 50th Anniversary of the Wave Hill Walk Off. Many Australians may not know what the 'Wave Hill Walk Off' was, but many will know the name of Vincent Lingiari, who led the walk off, will have seen the photo of Gough Whitlam pouring sand through Lingiari's hand, and will have sung along to the Paul Kelly song 'From Little Things, Big Things Grow'.

Thanks to @suttontoolsau for supporting CASSE and the Men's Tjilirra Movement (MTM) over a number of years by donating high quality hand tools and contributing $30,000 to secure the employment of Walter Jugadai, a local ngangkari. More news: .bit.ly/2M3QWLO pic.twitter.com/HnHSiP9VNe
