(Melbourne, Australia) Jack Latimore, Goori journalist and researcher, asked me to document this year’s Invasion Day march. It was a loud, proud, vibrant and inclusive affair – from Victoria’s Parliament House along Bourke St, down Swantson St to a rallying point in front of Flinders Street Station. It was an incredible display of community sentiment, literally a sea of faces in all directions. Words and pictures were originally published in the Feb 8 edition of the Koori Mail.
