Working from the lands of the Boon Wurrung and Wurundjeri peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, whose lands have been under ongoing illegal occupation by the settler state known as Australia since 1788. Their sovereignty was never ceded and resistance has been fertile and ongoing. We pay our respects to their leaders and elders, past and present.
