Aboriginal elder in London to protest intervention – ABC News

An Aboriginal elder from Arnhem Land has taken to the streets of London to call for world support to end the federal intervention in Northern Territory Indigenous communities.

Dr Djiniyini Gondarra hails from Elcho Island, off the coast of Arnhem Land. Standing outside the Australian High Commission in London, Dr Gondarra has sung a traditional song and read a statement calling for the federal intervention to end immediately.

“We are asking all people today to stand with us, fight with us,” he said.
