Something about This Song and Alice Springs...
Alice Springs is situated within the electorate of Lingiari, which covers the entire Northern Territory except for Metropolitan Darwin. In the 2004 election there were 57,776 enrolled voters in Lingiari.
Vincent Lingiari is most famous for his participation in the Wave Hill Strike. The Wave Hill strike began on August 22, 1966, following the Wave Hill Station manager's rejection of a request by Vincent Lingiari for a weekly wage of $25 for Aboriginal stockmen.
