Legacy of Eureka
The story of the Eureka Stockade is a fundamental milestone on Australia’s road to democracy. The people sheltering in the Eureka Stockade did not want to change the system of government; they wanted to be included in it. They were not insurgents. They were not revolutionaries. They rebelled against vicious treatment by police when all peaceful means of protest had failed. They sewed a flag and built a fence. They fought back. Their battle lasted approximately 20 minutes. However, all of us in Australia are the beneficiaries of their fight today. Watch the program here to learn more about their fight and the greatest of liberators, Jesus Christ, and the freedom that He brings to our lives.
