In 1788, on this date, January 18, the first parts of the First Fleet arrived at Botany Bay in Australia carrying convicts to set up a penal colony.
Too often now, this nation still feels like a prison, but there is hope when gutsy Aussie Freedom Fighter Matt is speaking.
A working man. A family man.
He cares deeply about the future of his country.
If his voice is heard and heeded, the future of Australia has a chance of being much better than its fear filled present.
Matt speaks fearlessly in front of a huge Melbourne police station last Saturday.
