Scott Morrison – Australia Day defined by pride and protest in nation’s capital
A mixture of pride and protest has defined Australia Day in the nation’s capital, where demonstrators marched to Parliament House.
Earlier in the day, 20 Australians pledged allegiance to the nation at a socially distanced ceremony.
Debates continue to rage over whether the date should be changed (January 26) for Australia’s national day.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison has urged Australians to take time to reflect on the journey of the nation, including the proud culture of First Nations people.
