Flying Foam Massacre Rememberance Stand up for the Burrup

Flying Foam Massacre Remembrance Day commemorates the genocide of the Yaburara people, original owners of the Burrup Peninsula in NW Australia.

The Flying Foam Massacres - which began on 17 February and continued until May 1868 - were designed to terrorise all of the First Nations people of NW Australia into submission, by demonstrating the savagery of the British invaders.

Since 1965, the Western Australian state has attacked the spiritual and cultural legacy of the Yaburara people and all the Ngarda Ngarli peoples of the West Pilbara, by destroying and desecrating the sacred Murujuga/Dampier Archipelago ('Burrup') rock art.

On Sunday 17 February 2013, we ask First Nations people throughout Australia and internationally, and supporters everywhere, to join in 'Stand Up for the Burrup' photo-shoot actions in support of our demand for UNESCO World Heritage List protection for the remaining Murujuga/Dampier Archipelago rock art. 

Join Ngarda Ngarli Elders Tim Douglas and Wilfred Hicks and supporters from First Nations and wider communities as the Global Stand Up for the Burrup campaign remembers the Flying Foam Massacre .

Our objective is to raise awareness about the massacres which enabled colonisation of Australia and demand UNESCO World Heritage Listing for the Murujuga/Dampier Archipelago Rock Art Precinct
