Roxley Foley, Firekeeper and spokesperson of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy Canberra Ex Freedom Summit delegate is visiting London to speak on issues of ongoing Australian colonial paradigms that are contributing to the continued dispossession, assimilation and genocide of Australia’s original sovereign peoples. The Aboriginal peoples of Australia are leading the fight to decolonise a society set on destroying itself through ecological suicide and class and race warfare. Can these voices be heard before it is too late?

The lecture will address:
- the relevance of historical revisionism and how a skewed view of history perpetuates ongoing atrocities under new euphemisms.

- the hidden contemporary struggles facing the original peoples who live a dramatically different life to what is promoted to an international audience.
- the need for decolonising solidarity and the end of the "Aboriginal Industry".
- the meaning of true self determination and land rights and why everyday Australians should not be afraid of such concepts.
- how indigenous knowledge holds the keys to ecological and economic sustainability.
- how Indigenous leadership can bring a new paradigm of people power in politics.
- the history of International support of Aboriginal resistance and why that support is needed today.
