Pastoral Station StrikePrint Page
Sculpture commemorates the pastoral strike of 1946 by Aboriginal station workers who were protesting about unfair pay rates.
Don McLeod at Marble Bar was an elected spokesman for the Aborigines and, with Dooley Bin Bin and Clancy McKenna, urged Aborigines who worked on large sheep and cattle stations to strike for better conditions. Although the employers sought assistance from the police and the Native Welfare Department to prevent the strike, five hundred men, women and children walked off the stations south of Nullagine and made their way to Port Hedland.
