A respectful remembrance of the beginning of a dark period in world history that brought together two peoples who now walk together in solidarity.

On 6 December 1938, a delegation from the Australian Aborigines’ League (AAL) led by Yorta Yorta Elder William Cooper, walked from Footscray to the German Consulate in Melbourne, to lodge a formal protest against Nazi persecution of the Jews of Europe.

Sadly, at this time of a rise in far-right bigotry across society, there is new urgency to educate people about basic Human Rights, role-modelled by the actions of the determined activists of the AAL, who stood up for others whilst not having any rights of their own.

Join us on the 82nd anniversary as we commemorate this momentous occasion – a time for reflection to hear the story paying tribute to William Cooper along with members of the AAL, and as we Walk Together in solidarity to emulate their values.

Featuring an amazing line-up of Australian legends, including:

  • Kate Ceberano
  • Lior
  • Paul Grabowsky
  • Deborah Cheetham and others
