Dennis Walker

Dennis Walker, the son of poet Oodgeroo Noonuccal (Kath Walker) from Stradbroke Island is a major figure in the civil rights and land rights movements of the 1970s. Having himself been in court only a few days beforehand on the charge of possessing a concealable firearm, he tells reporters 'if you haven't got a gun, you have nothing. We're not going to get what we want by standing here and talking.” He is sent to jail.
