Protesters march in solidarity with the Djab Wurrung people

More than 1000 people rallied in Melbourne on September 10 in solidarity with the Djab Wurrung people fighting to defend a sacred songline and trees from being destroyed by the Victorian state government.

The protesters demanded the government halt its plan to demolish the trees.

Speakers denounced ongoing colonisation and said the treatment of the Djab Wurrung was just the latest in a long line of attacks against Indigenous people by the state government. 

The protesters then marched from state parliament to the Coroner's Court where the inquest into the death of Yorta Yorta women Tanya Day was underway.
