Australia Day Debate

On the 26th of January every year we celebrate Australia Day. We all have our BBQs  and celebrate the public holiday.

But how do the aboriginals see Australia Day?

We celebrate it for the day the First Fleet arrived and claimed it for England. But some aboriginals view it as Invasion Day because it was the day the discrimination towards aboriginals started.

Some councils have decided to not celebrate Australia Day at all.

My opinion is that it should be changed to the 8th of May because that would be Meight!  (Mate)
