Such a pleasure to hold this flag with young Kaia today. If you're wondering why I march - it's like this:
My father is Czech. He was driven from his country after August 21 1968 when the Soviets came with tanks and guns and invaded - changing the country forever and leaving a legacy that is still felt today. He lost everything. His country, his culture, his friends. How would he feel if I threw a massive "Soviet Day!" party every August 21st, and then got mad at him for being sad about it?
Know your history, know why that history compelled people to march today.
Read, read, read. Australia is a great country for many - but not for all. It's time we made equity a priority. #survivalday #australiaday #closethegap #Repost @brit.evans
