Claiming Cockatoo Island for Aboriginals

Ten people including Isabel Coe use rowing boats to storm the fences of Cockatoo Island. Coe states, ‘Claiming Cockatoo Island for Aboriginal people', they then set up an Aboriginal Tent Embassy. On the island's highest point, the activists light a flame to begin the healing of the island and to assert title to the island for "ceremony, healing and to set in place the treaty process’.
