CHANGE THE DATE: GREENS MLC SAYS C’MON AUSSIE C’MON

Greens SA MLC, Tammy Franks, has backed a new poster campaign by Aboriginal artist, Elizabeth Close, and Adelaide printmaker, Jake Holmes, calling for the date of Australia Day to be changed.

The C’mon Aussie C’mon  poster was previously used as a campaign to legalise same-sex marriage.

Now the message is being used again, calling for national support to shift Australia Day.

“The previous C’mon Aussie C’mon poster campaign was used to say ‘yes’ to marriage equality, hopefully we can see another resounding ‘yes’ to changing the date and come together to celebrate on a day appropriate for all,” said Ms Franks.

“It’s through small steps, like Triple J listeners voting to change the date of the Hottest 100 countdown from January 26, artists like A.B. Original highlighting our history of injustice and the C’mon Aussie C’mon  poster campaign that can inform rather than divide Australians.”

Ms Franks will be speaking and available for comment at the C’mon Aussie C’mon poster campaign launch this Friday, January 26 at 10.30am on the steps of Parliament House.
