Imparja National News reports on the community of Daguragu celebrating the 30th anniversary of the 'Wave Hill Walk-Off'.

The history-making strike at the Northern Territory's Wave Hill cattle station was led by Vincent Lingiari on 23 August 1966 as a protest against work and pay conditions for Aboriginal workers.

This significant moment in Australia's history also marked the start of the Aboriginal land rights movement.
