This article is part of our June theme, which focuses on Indigenous People and their human rights. Read our Editorial for more on this theme.

Last week Australia marked 20 years since the High Court’s decision to grant native title to Eddie Mabo and the people of the Murray Islands. It was a watershed moment in Australian indigenous land rights, and led to the system of native title that continues to this day. Matthew Albert and Anna Dorevitch talk to Dr Bryan Keon-Cohen AM QC, one of the barristers who took Eddie Mabo’s case to the High Court and a champion of indigenous land rights in Australia. He will talk about the preparation of the Mabo case, what it means to him and how he sees native title developing in the future. To read Dr Bryan Keon-Cohen’s essay on Mabo and the current state of the native title system, click here.

Blackout (poem)

By Bänoo Zan

Bänoo Zan’s poem was written in the aftermath of countrywide protests against sudden steep rise in fuel price in Iran on November 15. Authorities shot down the Internet of the whole country and embarked on a horrific killing spree. Amnesty International has so far verified 208 deaths in less than a week.
