Sarah Marland on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders and their Homelands

When

Sarah Marland is a human rights campaigner, researcher and author. Since 2006, she has worked as Amnesty International’s Campaign Coordinator and Researcher on Indigenous Rights. Using participatory methodologies and working in partnership with an Aboriginal community in the Central Desert of Australia, Sarah co-authored the Amnesty International report The Land Holds Us: Aboriginal Peoples’ Right to Traditional Homelands in the Northern Territory which was released late 2011. Today she’ll detail the findings from the report.

Lunchbox/Soapbox

Sometimes, there’s nothing better than a good rant. Every Thursday, the Wheeler Centre hosts an old-fashioned Speaker’s Corner in the middle of the city, where writers and thinkers can have their say on the topics that won’t let them sleep at night.

Featuring some of the most compelling voices across just about every sector of human endeavour you can imagine, the themes dominating Lunchbox/Soapbox are proudly idiosyncratic. BYO lunch. Ideas provided.
