Conservatives scream blue bloody murder if anyone disrespects the grieving & reverence around Anzac Day yet seem genuinely unable to respect or understand grieving around Indigenous massacre & dispossession. That’s racism. #ChangeTheDate #AustraliaDay #auspol

I’m a proud Aboriginal woman, born of this land, as were my Ancestors for 60000+ years. I came into this world labelled as flora & fauna. Language, culture, identity denied. Despite this, I walk strong in my culture. We have survived. Let’s celebrate that ! #ChangeTheDATE

Well said Fitzy.
No one is taking away a day off work.
No one is saying let’s not celebrate being Australian.
Let’s just do it on a more appropriate, relevant, inclusive day.#ChangeTheDate

We need to reflect on the history of January 26, because we cannot start to heal as a nation until we start acknowledging the past. Celebrating on a day that causes so much hurt and suffering to Aboriginal people does not unite us and doesn’t bring us together. #changethedate

I love this wonderful country. We need a new day, a fresh start to celebrate all that is great and good about this nation. Not a date that is built on the blood and bones and suffering of our First Nations people. We can do it. #ChangeTheDate 🙏🏻 then we can all party together https://t.co/LhoWsWXei2

Australia Day. Time to reflect on what a great country this is & how it can become even greater.
Personally I am for changing the date so ALL Australians can celebrate our national day.
This is not a political opinion. It’s simply what I consider to be fair. #ChangeTheDate
