The public are invited to an Anzac Day Reflection on Tuesday 25 April between 10.30am and 11.30am in Richardson’s Lookout – Marrickville Peace Park (cnr Richards Avenue & Holt Crescent in Marrickville 2204).

The aim is to:

Respect victims of war including those who died in battle, those who were maimed physically and psychologically, along with those who suffered on the home front during WW1 and in other wars;

Acknowledge those who opposed conscription and war in the past and for official recognition of the Frontier Wars and their impact on indigenous dispossession;

Reflect on the myth-making associated with the Anzac legend;

Consider the prospects of developing an independent foreign policy and a culture of peace at home together with a commitment to collective security internationally.
