Artist Lyn Hovey recollects the Palm Sunday Coalition requesting a poster ‘in the Ken Done style’ for its 1988 rally. The event attracted a large crowd, with special focus on justice for Aboriginal Australians in the bicentennial celebration year. Looking back 30 years later, Hovey’s rueful view is that none of the issues listed on the agenda in the poster have been fully accomplished.
