Border joins march against government

A NATIONWIDE protest against the federal government will include the Border.

A March in March was last night announced for Wodonga, to be held on March 16 at 11am.

It will be one of dozens of similar events to be held in cities across Australia at the same time.

The March in March website states it is a “peaceful, non-partisan citizens’ march and rally to protest against the government’s policy decisions that are against the common good of our nation.

“This signifies the people’s vote of no confidence in policies of the government that go against common principles of humanity, decency, fairness, social justice and equity, democratic governance, responsible global citizenship and conserving our natural heritage.”

The Wodonga march has been organised by the North East Border Trades and Labour Council.

The Border Mail could not reach the labour council for comment last night.

The protest will be held at Woodland Grove Park.
