This week is NAIDOC week in Australia. It’s held each year in July and is a chance to promote and celebrate the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples. This year’s theme is VOICE. TREATY. TRUTH. and as in other years the goal is to continue moving forward for a better future.
Another trip to the city of Adelaide in South Australia, this time to pick up my new camera and to see the best Aussie band ever, Midnight Oil. These guys have been around for more than 40 years and on stage they haven’t lost a thing. Peter Garrett as a front man is the most imposing, dynamic character who at 64 years of age has more energy than I’ve ever had. The entire concert was a buzz from start to finish, every song a highlight. The oils have always had political messages and I’m with them all the way.
