This year's Invasion Day coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Aboriginal Tent Embassy. Here is a list of events that will be held to mark the occasion and protest ongoing oppression of First Nations peoples.
Invasion Day events
This year marks 230 years since British military forces invaded Gadigal land and declared British rule over this continent. One hundred and fifty years later a group of Aboriginal men and women met in the Australia Hall in Sydney to declare January 26 a Day of Mourning.
Every year the Invasion Day protests grow as more and more people realise it is not a day to celebrate but a day to say "enough is enough" and stand with first nations’ people of this country.
