Hear author Wal Walker discuss how he researched, wrote and put together The Squatters' Grab.

The Squatters' Grab confronts the great Australian silence about the history of our relations with the traditional owners, the cult of forgetfulness practised on a national scale described by Bill Stanner in his 1968 Boyer Lecture. More than fifty years later there was still no comprehensive account of the failures of governments and their administrations that gave rise to the murder and dispossession of the Indigenous Australians.

Copies of the book will be available for sale on the day.

Free Event

When: Tuesday, 23 July 2024 | 04:30 PM
