A mass political movement helped win constitutional rights in 1967, but it was built on successive, strategic campaigns conducted by the first Australians from the 1930s. Yorta Yorta man William Cooper forms the Australian Aborigines League in 1933 to continue his life-long campaign for equality. His nephew, Pastor Sir Doug Nicholls, became a champion for those affected by the Maralinga nuclear bomb tests in the 1950s.
