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

Fifty years ago, four men travelled to Australia’s capital and set up a beach umbrella with a sign marked “Aboriginal embassy”.

Their protest grew rapidly to thrust Aboriginal activism 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.
