******CONTENT WARNING****** Murder, Rape, Genocide. ****** ***** **** *** ** * That’s what the 26th of January is; a day of sadness for the first people of this land as it is a yearly reminder of the horrors that transpired at the hands of colonisation. It is not a day of celebration, and it is not a day that should be thought of with pride. It is a day where we need to come together in solidarity with our Indigenous brothers and sisters to fight for a change of date, and for treaties that respect Aboriginal culture, custodianship of the land, education, and freedom. All Indigenous folk who would like to attend this event are given free admission. All proceeds from this event will be donated to the Victorian Aboriginal Health Service -VAHS. You can make a separate donation to support the amazing and essential work they do here:

We acknowledge that this event is held on the stolen land of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin nation. We pay our respects to their elders, past, present, and emerging. Sovereignty has not been ceded. Always is, always was, and always will be Aboriginal land.
