Invasion Day protest 2018

Friday, January 26, 2018 - 10:00

The war on Aboriginal people continues … Sovereignty and Justice Now!

This rally will mark 230 years since British military forces invaded Gadigal land and declared British rule over this continent, along with Aotearoa and other Pacific Islands. While colonial regime continues to hold a day of celebration, we resist the ongoing war against Aboriginal people.

From the brutalisation of black youth in detention, the murder of men and women in custody, the theft of children from families, the destruction of Aboriginal lands to feed corporate profits, the apartheid NT Intervention, the forced removal of communities,

First Nations on this continent are under heavy assault from a new wave of dispossession. But the fightback is also growing and urgently needs your support.

This rally has been initiated by Fighting In Resistance Equally (FIRE), a coalition that organised last years impactful and successful "Invasion Day 2017 rally - no pride in genocide!"
Also the last two successful marches on human rights day, December 10 last year and this year.

FIRE believes that standing against the colonial system and the racist mindset that was brought here in 1788 is crucial to all struggles against oppression and exploitation.

This is an occasion for all people of this land to unite and stand in solidarity. All welcome.
