OFFICIAL STATEMENT

Aboriginal Tent Embassy, Canberra ACT, 30th December 2021



FIRE AT OLD PARLIAMENT HOUSE 30/12/2021

The Aboriginal Tent Embassy does not condone the actions of protestors who occupied the steps of Old Parliament House. Although we support the concept of nonviolent direct action, we do not condone the destruction of public and private property.

The actions of such protestors conducting a ‘’Smoking Ceremony’’ was done so without the knowledge, consent or mandate of the Embassy Council and Traditional Owners responsible for the regulation of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy.

In 28 days, we mark the 50th Anniversary of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy - our theme is 50 Years of Resisting and Still Fighting. We plan to hold a 3 day event on the 25th, 26th & 27th of January where we will honour and mourn our past, celebrate our survival and strategise for the next 50 years.
