‘It’s disgusting’: Mural of the Queen defaced with the Aboriginal flag
A mural of the Queen in Marrickville has been defaced with the Aboriginal flag.
Crowds gathered at Town Hall for an ‘Abolish The Monarchy’ rally.
Hundreds have heard speeches about the lasting effects of colonisation on Indigenous Australians.
“I say defaced, because the Queen’s face has been covered in yellow paint, with the red and black parts of the flag on the top and bottom it’s terribly disrespectful,” Chris O’Keefe said.
“This history needs to be told, and it needs to be taught and as a country, we are coming leaps and bounds in recognising and facing this history. I strongly believe that censoring this history cannot continue but we are talking about Queen Elizabeth.
“On a day where she has only been buried three days ago these kinds of offensive remarks do one thing and one thing only, polarise our country.”
