Come To Sam Watson's Campaign Launch This Saturday! (July 31st) @The
Lizard, West End, Brisbane, Australia.

The last Aboriginal Rights Coalition meeting recognised the call from
the Defending Indigenous Rights convergence held in Alice Springs July
6 - 9 calling on campaign groups to support Aboriginal candidates who
support the aims of the convergence. Responding to this call, the
Brisbane Aboriginal Rights Coalition endorsed Brisbane Aboriginal
leader and Qld Senate candidate Sam Watson's campaign. Sam will again
be standing with Socialist Alliance.

Sam has been a cornerstone of the Aboriginal struggle not just in Qld
but nationally, and has been instrumental in keeping the pressure on
the State Government in relation to the police murder of Mulrunji
Doomadgee in 2004 and maintaining the campaign for justice for
Mulrunji and family. He is an example of genuine leadership and puts
the Noel Pearson's of this country to absolute shame. (In fact Sam led
a protest outside Pearson's last visit to Brisbane!)

In keeping with the last meeting's pledge to support Sam's campaign,
this is an invite to Sam's campaign launch this Saturday!
