Melbourne Marches For Reconciliation

Hundreds of thousands of people marched for Reconciliation with Aborigines in Melbourne today.

Commencing at 8am, marchers left Flinders Street station and walked down St. Kilda Road, past the Shrine of Remembrance and onto the Domain. The last marchers left around 11am.

The march was the Melbourne equivalent of the well-attended Sydney event earlier this year when similar numbers walked across the Harbour bridge.

Many Labor, Democrat and Green politicians were in attendance, as were a small number of Liberals, notably Federal Treasurer Peter Costello, Health Minister Michael Wooldridge and former Prime Minister Malcolm Fraser.

A similar march was held in Perth, attended by Liberal Premier Richard Court. In both cities, the turnout suggests widespread support for reconciliation and a national apology to Aboriginal people.
