Invasion Day: Australia’s Colonial Past and Present

Invasion Day: Australia’s Colonial Past and Present

A talk

Thurs Jan 22 6:30pm

New Internationalist Bookshop, Trades Hall, Vic St, Carlton

Australia has a long history of colonialism, racism, and genocide. It’s a history that is whitewashed and denied in favour of the narrative we’re presented with each year on ‘Australia Day’, or what should be more accurately titled Invasion Day.

Join Anarchist Affinity on Thursday 22nd at the New International Bookshop to hear from two speakers on the real history behind Invasion Day and what it means today.

The two speakers will be followed by a Q and A session.

Speakers:

Vivian Moore – Indigenous activist on police violence and black deaths in custody.

Tony Birch – Indigenous academic, novelist and historian
