Photos: Hundreds turn out for 'Abolish the monarchy' rally

September 22, 2022

Hundreds rallied to say "abolish the monarchy" on the September 22, Labor's so-called Day of Mourning.

Lizzie Jarrett, Lynda-June Coe and Gwenda Stanley, among other speakers, expressed the outrage of First Nations people at the crimes of the monarchy and their representatives.

Justice is needed, they said, not undeserved tears for a dead monarch.
