Side by side on the Freedom Ride

At sunrise on Wednesday February 18, an excited crowd gathered outside the iconic Quadrangle at the University of Sydney. It was time to revive the legacy of the 1965 Freedom Ride – a student bus tour of country NSW that finally made newsworthy the inequalities faced by Aboriginal people. February’s 50th anniversary ride saw greater positivity, support and community spirit than previous rides, even as it broadcast the ongoing concerns of Indigenous Australians.
