This BTN is about Australia day and why people celebrate it.
Australia day used to be called ‘foundation day,’ it had re-enactments of when the first fleet arrived in Australia. I also found out that in 1988, 15 thousand Aboriginal people staged a protest about freedom, justice and hope. The day celebrates the arrival of the first fleet 200 years ago.
Why do some people want to change the date that Australia day is held?
Does the parade that showcases all the culture that makes up Australia showcase the Aboriginal culture in Australia?
After watching this BTN, I understood that many Aboriginal people are upset about Australia day and use it to grieve over the loss of loved ones and have re-enactments of what it was like when the English first came.
