March in March

Thousands of people turned out in capital cities across Australia to protest against the Abbott Government’s policies on climate change, asylum seekers, marriage equality, education funding, indigenous rights and more.

The grassroots March in March movement, which claimed to be a nonpartisan peaceful protest, was organised largely through social media.

In Melbourne, parents, students, environmentalists, refugee supporters, cab drivers, teachers and children gathered in the heart of the city to tell the federal government they are not happy.

The Melbourne chapter of the nationwide March in March featured speeches on indigenous rights, education funding and university cuts.
