Invasion Day 26th January Melbourne RALLY & MARCH

"It’s like expecting the Jewish people to celebrate and embrace what Nazi Germany did in Germany against the Jewish people." ~ Aunty Isabel Coe

The 26th January commonly known as "Australia day" is sold as a day to celebrate the 'lucky country' the date chosen to commemorate the arrival of the First Fleet, the 'discovery' of the Great Southern Land. The raising of the Union Jack symbolised British occupation of the eastern half of the continent claimed by Captain James Cook.

This date is more appropriately known to most First Nations people as Survival or Invasion day. It is also a day of mourning, we mourn the loss of land, culture, languages, we mourn the loss of freedom and abundance, and we mourn for the people who have, and continue to suffer under this disconnected, insatiable, violent and destructive imposed Capitalist system. Australia remains without Treaty, consent or compensation, the Stolen generation, stolen wages, dispossession, racism, assimilation, land theft continue.

Indigenous people maintain the longest running protest in the country with the Canberra tent embassy now running for 41 years. There are also many embassys that also dot this land who have been in constant struggle against the colonial state aggressors for their sovereign right to exist.

As our political voice outside the perspectives of the current dominant world view are not encouraged (if allowed at all) we are forced to take things into our own hands and to organise and rally to have these much needed political conversations.

This is a call out to all people of this land to step forward and right the wrongs together and build some momentum against the out of control machine that threatens our very existence as the oldest living culture in the world, and together has human beings.

So bring your flags and banners and come along and hear speakers talk about the Stronger futures act, basics card, Native Title, Constitutional reform, deaths in custody, racism, KODE school closures in Victoria, Victorian update on N,T, environment, mining, Capitalism and our black political history and its relevance today.

See you there!
