Australia Day……hmmmmm…..

I have very mixed feelings about this National Day.  I don’t see that the ‘White Invasion’ has been a good thing for the country and its indigenous peoples, yet the clock cannot be turned back.

Read what a friend of mine has written about it……http://mekat.wordpress.com/

Here’s an excerpt:” January 26 1788, when ships of the ‘first fleet’ landed on a beach in Sydney Cove and founded a penal colony – and because of that, people up to thousands of kilometres away from that place today will celebrate it”
