Sydney Hilton bombing, February 13, 1978

On this day, Australia suffered what has been described as that nation’s first act of domestic terrorism.  A bomb exploded outside the Sydney Hilton Hotel, killing three persons and injuring 11 persons.  The hotel was the site of a Commonwealth ministers conference.  Tim Anderson, a leader in the Ananda Marga religious organization, and two other activists were convicted and jailed.  After years of political and legal struggle, the highest court of New South Wales acquitted Tim Anderson in 1991.  The free Tim Anderson campaign gave birth to two protest songs, “Framed” and “Criminal Justice” by radical musician Alistair Hulett.  The crime remains unsolved.  Article in Wikipedia.
