Twilight Walk 2014

TWILIGHT WALK
Boundary Street, Spring Hill to Boundary Street, West End
3.00 pm Sunday 25th May 2014

On Sunday 25th May Reconciliation Queensland will be coordinating and participating in a Let’s Walk the Talk for Recognition Twilight Walk “Boundary to Boundary”.

It’s time to recognise Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples in Australia’s Constitution. And it’s time to remove discrimination — like the section that still says people can be banned from voting based on race — from our founding document.

You are invited to join the walk which starts at 3:00 pm and is a slow, police supported walk from St James College, Boundary Street, Spring Hill to Boundary Street, West End (approx. 5 km) which recognises the boundaries of indigenous exclusion at twilight from the settlement of Brisbane during the 19th century.

The walk ends at West End where participants will gather at a suitable venue to share stories and enjoy a barbeque and enjoy the music of local artists and listen to a range of guest speakers.

Walkers are to meet at St James College, 201 Boundary Street, Brisbane at 2.00 pm

Please wear comfortable walking shoes, catch public transport if necessary and carry an umbrella if the weather forecast is for either rain or showers.

To promote the recognition of Aboriginal peoples and Torres Strait Islander peoples as Australia’s First Peoples through changes to the Australian Constitution is an important consideration for all Australians and we look forward to walking alongside you in support of this endeavour.
