The Embassy is a reclamation of the sovereign indigenous land and represents a united front of world indigenous movements against the destruction of the earth and its peoples.
“The Earth Embassy brings the reality of the environment emergency to the parliament and big business district of Melbourne through traditional, beautiful radical and necessary acts of creative resistance.”
This World Environment Day, June the 5th 2014 an Earth Embassy will be established at the Victorian Parliament House precinct. The Embassy is a reclamation of the sovereign indigenous land and will represent a united front of world indigenous movements against the destruction of the earth and its peoples.
The autonomous space will be a hub for all earth defenders to establish a presence on Aboriginal land and bring their issues to the city streets.
The protest features the First-nations Liberation Movement (FnL). They will bring Black issues to the conversation on World Environment Day, creating a space for indigenous people to join forces in solidarity with others responding to the ecological emergency facing our planet.
West Papuan indigenous activists will construct a traditional hut to bring their demands for environmental justice and human rights in their homeland to Melbourne.
