The Change the Day Debate

Monday 12th December / presented by Jessica Warriner

The debate around Fremantle Council’s decision to move its Australia Day celebrations to January 28 continues.

Many are in favour with a growing movement around the country to follow Freo’s lead for the nation to move the day.

Though the Federal Government remains firmly opposed – it maintains its stance that Freo won’t be able to conduct citizenship ceremonies on January 28.
The decision to observe Australia Day without fireworks two days after the official public holiday, and the subsequent reaction by politicians and media, was addressed in a pop-up panel at the Re-imagining Australia conference over the weekend.

Fremantle Mayor Brad Pettitt joined Jess on The Mag to discuss this further.
