"Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard stumbled and was caught by a security guard as riot police helped her force a path through a crowd of rowdy protesters following a ceremony to mark Australia’s national day Thursday."

Opposition leader Tony Abbott stated, "Look, I can understand why the Tent Embassy was established all those years ago. I think a lot has changed for the better since then" it is time to move on.

“What Tony Abbott said was disgraceful. Our people are living in awful third world conditions, they’re dying and this government just continues to turn a blind eye to it.”

"Activist Sean Gordon told the ABC, "We have no economic base for who we are as Aboriginal people. We have title to land we aren't able to do anything with. How have we moved on?"

Aboriginal activists from the embassy are demanding the Prime Minister sign a treaty of sovereignty granting ownership of Australian land to its indigenous peoples.
