Paul Coe is a Wiradjuri man originally from Cowra, NSW. In 1970 he was an art student and later helped establish and chaired the Aboriginal Legal Service in Redfern. He went on to study law and became a barrister.

‘Cook was directly responsible for the subjugation and suppression of the Aboriginal People of Australia, whereas, the White Australian Establishment is directly responsible for the exploitation and destruction of a unique race, and their culture, today.’
