Summary

A collection of photographs by activist Lyn McLeavy, taken while working with Campaign Against Racial Exploitation (CARE) and its subgroup Campaign Against Mining Aboriginal Land (CAMAL) between 1976 and 1980. The photographs record three demonstrations held in Melbourne between 1978 and 1979 against uranium mining on Aboriginal land and a Rock Against Racism concert in 1980. Several photographs of a West Australian tour in 1979 show the living conditions of the Jigalong community in the Pilbara and the Bidyadanga community at La Grange Mission. Also includes a meeting of the Kimberley and North Queensland Land Councils at Fitzroy Crossing in October 1979 and signage for the entrance to La Grange Mission, "No grog please" and Aboriginal sacred site protection.
