On Australia Day in 1938 a group of Aboriginal people protested in front of Australia Hall after they were moved off the Town Hall steps. This small protest was the culmination of decades of activism by Indigenous communities and their leaders in the south east of Australia; leaders such as William Cooper and Fred Maynard, who had sought the same rights as all other Australians, especially in relation to their ability to own land, to access jobs and to accesse ducation and health services.
