Should a Queensland Aborigine still beg for his own wages?, October 1970

In October 1970, the FCAATSI decided if the Commonwealth Banking Corporation did not dissociate itself from the Trust Fund system in Queensland they would transfer their business to another bank and called for others to do the same by filling in their details on the leaflet and / or making a donation. In Queensland an assisted Australian Aboriginal may have all or part of their wages be paid into a "trust fund" and was only available upon request to a district officer of the Department of Aboriginal and Island Affairs.
