ANTaR Victoria is a grassroots organisation campaigning for justice in solidarity with Australia's First Peoples.
We are based on Traditional Aboriginal Country in what we now call Melbourne, Australia. Our office is on Wurundjeri Country in the suburb, Fitzoy.
ANTaR Victoria acknowledges that at the time of European arrival the totality of the lands that are now known as Victoria were occupied by sovereign Indigenous nations who owned, cared for and enjoyed their land in accordance with their laws, customs and traditions.
The Indigenous nations’ sovereignty as well as their peoples’ right of ownership, occupation, use and enjoyment of lands have never been ceded. We acknowledge all Indigenous peoples in Victoria today, including the original language groups as well as all clans, family groups and land owning groups; as well as affirm their rights to their lands, their rights to self determination and to exercise control over their culture and traditions.
