Wave Hill Walk-Off leaflet

For the Gurindji people the Wave Hill Walk-Off was not just about working conditions, it was also about land. They put in a claim for their country – then leased by the powerful English pastoral company Vesteys.

Nine years later, after a dedicated national campaign, the Wave Hill lease was surrendered and two new leases were issued: one to the Vesteys and one to the Gurindji people.
