Aboriginal land rights poster urging public protest against the Commonwealth Games, staged in Brisbane in 1982. The slogan ‘Land rights before games’ was used on a number of different posters and badges during the build-up to the Games. However, we can trace no other example of this particular poster design in Australian collections.
