Anti-Australia Day banner drop, London, UKAdd to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
London, UK. 25th January, 2019. Activists drop a banner from Westminster Bridge, in view of the Houses of Parliament, to call for the abolition of Australia Day in advance of rallies in every Australian city on Australia Day tomorrow. The event was organised in solidarity with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people who consider Australia Day, a day celebrating the colonisation of Australia, to be a day of mourning rather than a day of celebration. Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people will, instead, stage 'Invasion Day' and 'Survival Day' protests and commemorations across Australia.
