Anzac Day Reflection – Sunday 25 April 2021

An Anzac Day Reflection will be held on Sunday 25th April at Richardson’s Lookout – Marrickville Peace Park (corner of Richards Avenue and Holts Crescent in Marrickville). This public event will begin at 10.30am.

As in previous years, the Anzac Day Reflection will focus on the following:

  • Respect victims of war, including those who died in battle, those who suffered physical and psychological injuries, as well as their families who endured grief and hardship as a result.
  • Reflect on the historical distortions associated with the Anzac legend.
  • Call for official recognition of the Frontier Wars, Australia’s first war involving a series of violent engagements and massacres of Indigenous people resulting in the dispossession of their land and territory.
  • Reflect on how to build a culture of peace, an independent foreign policy and a commitment to collective security internationally.

Speakers include Jennifer Newman who will present an Acknowledgement of Country, Linda Burney MP (Member for Barton), Jo Blackman (MPG) and Andy Kissane (writer and poet).

Hosted by the Marrickville Peace Group. Refreshments provided. All welcome.
