Meet at Pool of Reflection in Hyde Park South and then march to US Consular Office in Martin Place.

The event will open with a Welcome to Country, followed by speakers and then the march will follow. The route will proceed north to Park Street, right on Pitt Street through the Pitt Street Mall, right on King Street, left on Elizabeth Street, and into Martin Place to finish in front of the MLC Centre (home to the United States’ Consular Office). The event will then finish with a call-to-action ceremony. Feel free to wear white in solidarity with the suffragettes.

Protest’s Mission Statement

“This is a peaceful protest march to raise our voices in solidarity with those marching in Washington DC and around the world. We march in support of equal rights. We march for fair and civil treatment of women, minorities and immigrants. We march against the hatred and bigotry that have been so tragically present in world politics this year. We want to provide an opportunity for everyone who is distressed and outraged by the recent political events in the US, and around the world, to voice their dissent against sexism, racism and bigotry.”
