A list of all massacres of Indigenous Australians that happened in Victoria. I feel this information needs to be shared as people don’t know nearly enough about Indigenous Australians and do not know how horribly we were and still are treated. Nothing else needs to be said as the list tells it all. Click the photos to save a bigger image for reading the list clearly.

68 massacres, in an EIGHTEEN YEAR PERIOD.

That’s not start to end, that’s just a little fucking slice.

18 years.

That’s birth to adulthood. Thousands of your cousins, slaughtered for no reason other than white people considering them inferior.

Nobody knows loss like native people.

thelittlebirdthatkeptsomanywarm asked: Once you get this, you have to say five nice things about yourself publicly, then send this to ten of your favorite followers.

1) I’m always trying to become a better person.

2) I make an effort to see issues from multiple points of view (unless it’s the heat of the moment but nevermind), interested in understanding the world better.

3) Super thrifty, very good at saving money.

4) Decent storyteller.

5) I don’t compare myself to a socially imposed standard of what my life (or me, for that matter) is supposed to look like, try to genuinely evaluate whether I’m happy as I am instead of comparing myself to milestones or standards or other people.

Filed under if I can figure out who hasn't already gotten this... personal improvement goals: less selfish better listener control my temper better less self absorbed lots of variations on that theme XDD i think i'm getting better! aka maturing but i'll take it ps mer sent me this too thank you bb

I am not superwoman. My mother is not superwoman. My mother’s mother is not superwoman. I am, we are, soft. Can shatter. Crumble in your hands. Our survival does not mean we prosper. We are like other women but unlike them. So do not tell us we can handle anything. We only seem like superwoman, a figment of your imagination, because you have forced our lives to be perpetual labor with only seconds of relief. If we carry the world on our shoulders and the children on our backs, what are we but your glorified mules slapped with guilt praises of perseverance and strength. Our bones and our blood and our sweat have built the wealth of nations. Our burial should not be the first time we rest.

Vero skill vs. Boston Breakers // July 20th, 2014

"She twists and turns, she changes direction. Everybody thinks she’s going that way and then she’s the other way. Our team’s got used to that now. They don’t go running in the direction Veró’s running in. They run almost in the opposite direction knowing she’s going to turn out and maybe look for a ball. She can beat you on the dribble. She can beat you with a pass." [ x ]
