Stars of Home and Away and ABC, Lincoln Younes and Costa Georgiadis, participated in a “Invasion Day” protest against Australia Day celebrations on Friday in Sydney.
As he joined thousands of people nationwide to protest against Australia Day on January 26 and in support of Indigenous rights, Lincoln posted a picture to his Instagram.
Using the colors of the Aboriginal flag—black, yellow, and red—the actor merely captioned the picture.
Costa joined Lincoln; the latter was spotted at the demonstration wearing red shorts and a white T-shirt.
With his disheveled hair, bushy beard, and brown hat, he blended in with the throng while maintaining a low profile.
In the meanwhile, Abbie Chatfield announced that “because it is Invasion Day,” she will not be posting a new episode on her podcast.
Hello to all of you! Since it’s Invasion Day, there won’t be a Nightmare Fuel episode tomorrow. Rather, we have compiled a list of the marches and protests taking place in the major cities.
“What was, is, and always will be.”
Nasser Sultan, a former cast member of Married At First Sight, has denounced Australia Day as a holiday.
The only nation that commemorates the day of its invasion is Australia. Which is comparable to America throwing a pool party on Pearl Harbor Day,” he added.
Matty Fahd, star of Gogglebox, paid homage to Indigenous Australians on Australia Day.
He posted a picture of two Aboriginal women hoisting the Australian Aboriginal Flag on Instagram.
He wrote, “Always was always will be,” as the post’s caption.
Jesinta Campbell also published a harsh essay on Thursday, denouncing Australia Day as a commemoration of “colonization.”
The 32-year-old former Miss Universe Australia, who is wed to Indigenous Sydney Swans player Lance “Buddy” Franklin, used Instagram to repost a number of posts from well-known opponents of Australia Day.
‘Invasion Day’ was put underneath in strong letters, and the words ‘Australia Day’ were crossed out in the first post.
“The coming of one race at the expense of another,” it went on. Are you going to acquire the correct place names of the land you reside on? After completing this, research the events they host on this day or throughout the year. Visit them. Become immersed in the culture.
The graphic that stated, “Australia is the only country that marks colonization as their national day,” was finally reposted by Jesinta.
