Invasion Day Rally
Time Out says
The Invasion Day rally takes over the Domain this January 26
Sydney's annual Invasion Day rally will take place again in 2021, as January 26 marks 233 years since British military forces invaded Gadigal land and declared British rule over this continent, along with Aotearoa and other Pacific Islands.
The global Black Lives Matter movement in mid-2020 sparked protests and demonstrations around the world, and spurred on acknowledgement of the race-related injustices that continues to take place in this country against its original inhabitants, too. People took in droves to post on social media and write captions about how they'd 'do better' – well, here's your chance.
In an act of resistance against continuing systemic racism, deaths in custody and the colonial project, the Gadigal people are inviting First Nations peoples and allies to march in a peaceful protest at Djarrbarrgalli, known as the Sydney Domain, on January 26.
Anyone is welcome. Masks are essential, and it's important to practice physical distancing wherever possible. Keep up with updates on the Facebook event.
