Fuck Australia day, and fuck any cunt that thinks of it as anything more than just a day off work.

All it means to me is a bunch of bogan cunts getting drunk, taking their shirts off, getting half-price southern cross tattoos and attacking the immigrants and the natives and telling them to 'get out of our country.'

It's a celebration of genocide and it perpetuates racism.


Does anybody else think of it differently? Is there anybody else with a different perspective of it?

Sounds like Independence Day in Redneck parts of the USA.

I heard your PM was attacked because of remarks made by the opposition leader.

I wish Ed Milliband could do that.

I used to think that way. And to a degree I still do. But to be honest, we've got 364 other days of the year to focus on all the problems with Australia (and there are a lot of them) so I chose to spend this year celebrating the fact that I could celebrate at all. Because despite all of the many many problems with this country, at least we have the right to say what we believe and at least try to change what we don't like. To me, that in itself is worth celebrating.

Ironically enough, if it had been Australia Day yesterday, I wouldn't have thought that there was anything wrong with it, but until talking to a friend today about it, she pointed out (basically) what you wrote, which surprised me that It had never occurred to me before.

As she put it, we are basically giving the Indigenous people of Australia a big "**** you", and celebrating the fact that we stole the land from others. Now before any of you say "then get out of Australia, and move to somewhere where you're happy", I am more than happy here, but I just find it a little sad that we disregard the Indigenous people in this context.

Also (as far as I know!) The British didn't colonise here on this day, so what is there to celebrate. Anyone know why it's on the 26th?

Well today everybody gets a day off to get drunk and say things like this (except replace America with Australia) to both the natives and the immigrants: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMOcyCLZHBQ

So today is a pretty good day to think about our problems, if you ask me.

We don't. I almost prefer it that way, though. I might have made this thread to complain about the blatant racism in our society, but our lack of freedom of speech at least stops the spread of neo-nazism, unlike America. I hear the Nazis are getting pretty popular over there of late.

That's the day federation occurred. 26th January 1901. I'm foreign and I know this shit.

I don't know if you're being sarcastic or not but it was actually the day the First Fleet landed in 1788.

No-Apparently it turns out that the First Fleet arrived at Australia on the 18-20th of January 1788. As there are only 6-8 days difference, I'm guessing the 26th does have some relevance, but not the date the first fleet arrived...

Hm referencing the Wiki article for Australia Day, apparently it was the day they arrived at Sydney Cove. So that makes sense, I guess.

I love how we don't even know what we're celebrating for.

Next time google before you condescend. Federation was on January 1 1901. 26th was when the first fleet arrived. Hence "Invasion day".

It was supposed to be celebrating the day they arrived. Obviously there's some confusion as to the actual date.

Apparently Geoffrey Rush is Australian of the Year. I like Pirates of the Carribean so I think I'm okay with that.
