"This day marks the campaign led by Eddie Koiki Mabo (29 June 1936–21 January 1992), a Torres Strait Islander whose fight for land rights led to a landmark decision of the High Court of Australia that, on 3 June 1992, overturned the legal fiction of terra nullius which had characterised Australian law with regards to land and title since the voyage of James Cook in 1770."
