As Amnesty International says:
Australia Day is not a celebration for all Australians. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples mark this day as Survival Day.
Since colonisation, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples have been subjected to government-sanctioned violence, policies that removed children from families, the removal of people from their lands and the denial of self-determination.
This year on Survival Day, let’s stand in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and recognise the survival and resilience of the oldest living culture in the world.
If you would like to attend the Invasion Day rally, then it starts tomorrow 26 January at 11:00 am. Go to Hyde Park South, corner of Elizabeth St and Liverpool St, Sydney City. We might see you there!
This is a peaceful protest commemorating the struggles and resistance of Indigenous peoples and celebrating their survival. All are welcome to attend and take part.
