Warning: Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples need to know there is an image that displays deceased people.

“Australia Day” January 26 marks the anniversary of the arrival of the first fleet at Port Jackson in 1788. For most indigenous people this is known as invasion day. Their treatment to this day has been brutal and in the least one of denial and rejection. It is a hard history to read and on the part of the colonial architects, even to this day, a very shameful history.

But then I believe that nationalism and patriotism are poisonous, as history and our nightly news shows, so maybe no day is needed.
