Petition to make Mabo day a national public holiday

Petition to make Mabo day a national public holiday.


We support Kaleb Mabo and his family for the Australian Government to recognise Mabo Day (3 June) as a National Holiday for all Australians to celebrate. Mabo Day is a day that legally identifies Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders as the ones to occupy Australia first. More than 30 years on from Dr Eddie Koiki Mabo’s High Court victory, we honour his achievement in restoring land rights for his people on the Island of Mer (Murray Island), that ultimately led to the national Native Title Act. We pay tribute to Mabo for setting us on a singular path to equally and respectfully inhabit this continent side by side.
