What's on this Australia Day in Tasmania

1. Invasion Day

January 26

The Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre's Invasion Day protests will be held online this year due to COVID-19 health concerns for the Aboriginal community. The centre's campaign manager Nala Mansell said with the push to change the date growing, pressure was building on politicians. The online Invasion Day rally will start at 11.45am on January 26 and can be viewed by visiting the Tasmanian Aboriginal Centre's Facebook page. Ms Mansell said it was important to give people the opportunity to call for change, and the pandemic would not stop the campaign.
