Rally Speeches & Media Coverage

Posted on Updated on

It was great seeing everyone who made it out to the rally and march today: from Thorncliffe, Flemingdon and beyond! We sent a strong message of anti-racist solidarity.

Many thanks to our speakers for their inspirational speeches throughout the action:

Heather Milton Lightening (Indigenous activist), Parmbir Gill (Sikh Activist), Suraia Sahar (Afghan activist), Howard Davidson (Jewish activist), Amna Sabowala (Anti-war Muslim activist)
