" "[The] Australian people need to come to terms with the truths of this country to understand."
"According the council, Darebin has the second-largest Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander population in metropolitan Melbourne."
Frankly I think the people living within the shire of this council and Yarra City need to come to terms with the fact they live in Australia. And the horrors that occurred
during the late 1700's are for better and worse a part of Australia's history. The people alive and kicking today in Australia should feel bloody proud to be able to live here in relative comfort and safety, unlike the aboriginals and the boat people ( predominantly convicts ) brought here against their will and the Chinese, and whoever else ...
What gives these people the right to proclaim a change of date ? It's like Anzac Day, a bitter reminder of another part of our history, I do not want that day changed because someone else thinks another day would work better. Aus Day is not just about a happy day, it's about understanding how we got to where we are today ... ffs.
Grow up people and start protesting about life threatening events, if you must protest about something. This is all just bullshit.
