Previous Page Parent Page Next Page Australia Day, the 26th of January, was proclaimed a Day of Mourning in 1938 and has historically been protested by Aboriginal Australia. In 1988, the year of Australia�s Bicentenary, the Freedom, Justice and Hope March protested the original invasion of Australia, and its re-enactment in Sydney two hundred years after it began. Over 50,000 Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people formed this March in 1988 in celebration of Aboriginal Australia�s cultural and spiritual survival.
