Eureka 2012 Sth Aust Commemoration

Invitation to the 158th Eureka Day Commemoration

The main focus for this year’s Eureka commemoration will be Refugees and Asylum seekers. Don Longo, of Adelaide University, will give the 2012 Eureka Day speech which will focus on the meaning of Eureka today, particularly with respect to the issue of Refugees and Asylum seekers and the appalling treatment meted out to them. Especially the Federal Government's introduction of the legislation to excise the Australian mainland from the migration zone. Don's research speciality is the history around Raffaello Carboni, with a particular interest in the period that Carboni lived among the Tarrang people, an indigenous tribe in Victoria’s Loddon Valley.

• What does the Eureka uprising in 1854 mean for us today?

• In today’s Australia who seizes all the wealth from our natural resources?
And who really creates all the wealth in this country?

profits and who really pays? Is the TPP a fair trade deal?
• Why are the US troops and bases in Australia?
• Australia’s multiculturalism was born at the Eureka Stockade rebellion
in 1854. Many miners in Ballarat were refugees fleeing oppression in
their countries.
