Do you even know what Australia day represents to the aboriginal people of our country?
you say go and get stuffed which just shows how terribly ignorant you are.
Australia Day (previously known as Anniversary Day, Foundation Day, and ANA Day) is the official national day of Australia. Celebrated annually on 26 January, the date commemorates the arrival of the First Fleet at Sydney Cove in 1788 and the proclamation at that time of British sovereignty over the eastern seaboard of New Holland.
you say it is a day to show your aussie pride? well i say it is a time to reflect on how the british conquered and destroyed a culture.
Your get stuffed attitude is shared with many in our country and its very sad.
I believe "Invasion Day" is the correct name for it.
Not everyone who flys the australian flag and has a southern cross tattoo is racist but i do believe a large portion are ignorant.
Just because I don't agree with you I am ignorant? Well that's a real Neanderthal attitude you have there!
I am of first fleet heritage and do not need the history lesson from likes of you! It's Australia Day let us have our one day!
You may call it "invasion day" but if you want to put it like that the superior (Superior in fighting ability only .... not as people) warrior won! Did they not? Remember you started it!
