MABO DAY

Mabo day commemorates the efforts of Eddie Koiki Mabo, who pushed to overturn terra nullas by the High Court of Australia. Terra nullas gave white settlers the power to take and possess any land that was owned and possessed by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. It was this decision that Australian landmark law got changed to the benefit of Australian Indigenous people.
