Our title is taken from a poem, 'Chained', by the Aboriginal author and activist Kevin Gilbert (1990: 38). The poem gives expression to a contradiction of 'white man law' in Australia:
Pinchim wimmen, pinchim land
Kill the Blackmen, whiteman grand
Him make law for whiteman good
Him steal land and Blackman food
