Aus­tra­lia Day

Vocable (Anglais) - - A 360 -

A third coun­cil in Mel­bourne has vo­ted to scrap Aus­tra­lia Day ce­le­bra­tions out of res­pect to Abo­ri­gi­nal peoples. Aus­tra­lia’s na­tio­nal day, held on 26 Ja­nua­ry, marks the an­ni­ver­sa­ry of the ar­ri­val of Bri­tain’s First Fleet in 1788. Mo­re­land Ci­ty coun­cil­lor Sue Bol­ton said the date was "gross­ly in­sen­si­tive." Calls to change Aus­tra­lia Day have grown in recent years and spur­red pro­tests across the coun­try.
