The Day of Mourning

The Australian Aborigines League and the Aboriginal Progressive Association hold the Day of Mourning, at the building known as Old Bishops Hall, 150 Elizabeth St, renamed Australia Hall in 1923, later known as the Cypress Helene Building. Here Jack Patten calls for new laws for education and care of Aboriginal people and a new policy that will raise Aboriginal people to full citizen status and equality within the Australian community. The meeting attracts 100 people. A permanent conservation order is placed on the building in 1995.
