Protest and Action: How Australians have made themselves heard over time

Tuesday 19 November 2019, 08:00am

Australians have long campaigned for what they believe in, from the 1808 Rum Rebellion to the Eureka Stockade in 1854, the suffragettes in the 1890s, the conscription debates of the First World War, the 1967 Indigenous referendum, and the Franklin Dam protests. 

Join Bob Brown, former senator and leader of the Australian Greens party; Patricia Turner AM, CEO of the National Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation; Verity Burgmann, Adjunct Professor of Politics at Monash University and ABC RN Big Ideas presenter Paul Barclay as they discuss Australia’s rebellious past and consider the future of popular protest.
This panel discussion is part of the Defining Moments in Australian History project and has been developed in collaboration with ABC Radio National
