For First Nations people, January 26th 1788 marked the start of genocide, dispossession, displacement, and oppression.

January 26th is not a day to celebrate a country built on these atrocities. It's not a day to embrace white nationalism or colonialism. January 26th is a day to protest!

Join First Nations People in Meanjin and around the continent in our fight for justice and rights. #AbolishAustraliaDay #InvasionDay2019 #KeepTheFireBurning #FuckTheDateChangeTheSystem

We will be gathering at Emma Miller Place (Roma Steet Forum), Roma Street at 10am, starting speeches at 10:30, and marching through the city and South Bank at 11:30am.

This event will be held on the lands of the Jagera, Yuggera, Yuggerapul and Turrbul people. We acknowledge that sovereignty was never ceded, this land was never ceded, and it always was, and always will be Aboriginal Land.
