Yep, a day that isn't the anniversary of a massacre would be a good start (Waterloo Creek, 1838 - up to 500 men, women and children).
I don't understand why people get so defensive of the date we celebrate - it was only called Australia Day from 1946 and was only celebrated as a public holiday Australia wide since 1994. We celebrate the Queen's birthday on a day that's not actually her birthday, so clearly we are flexible!
We should celebrate on a day everyone can come together - maybe pick one that's not usually so hot would be great too!
Wouldn’t mind if we did. Aboriginal people are very tied to ansestry and it is pretty terrible celebrating on a day that they were massacred and so much was taken from them. And literally celebrating what was taken.
We’ve got a lot to answer for how we’ve let our original amazing history be openly told and a big chunk not told at all.
There’s been a big change which is great but you go to nz and Maori culture hasn’t been erased or forgotten it’s been woven through the new society.
No because they'll never be happy no matter what you do
Give them an inch, they want a mile. Enough already.
There's always a new reason to whinge
