    Tens of thousands protest Australia Day legacy of 'colonisation and genocide'

    Tens of thousands of people rallied across Australia to call for the abolition of the annual national celebration of 26 January as they argue the day represents colonisation and the genocide of indigenous people.

    While Australia Day marks the anniversary of the 1788 arrival of the British First Fleet at Botany Bay, many indigenous Australians, who trace their lineage on the continent back 50,000 years, regard it as “Invasion Day”.

    “Today marks the start of colonisation and the start of genocide and you name it,” said Jayden Riley, 17, who was marching in Sydney on Saturday wearing a vest in the colours of the Aboriginal flag.

    Do you have something similar in the US ?

    The Aboriginal flag is a symbol of division. Allowing a separate national flag for a certain section of society will create more problems in the future like other separatist movements in Spain or western China.

    we do not feel sorry/guilty/etc
    the indigenous peoples all over committed the same thing, just on a smaller scale
    so, they have no room to whine

    I dont know you so I dont know if you are taking the piss. Sepratism is not a problem. It worked ok for the US.
