Between 200-300 people marched on Saturday through Sydney’s city streets, Gadigal, from Town Hall to Railway Square in solidarity with the Djab Wurrung Embassy, which is currently protecting several 800+ year old sacred trees in south western Victoria from destruction.
These ancient trees are under threat of being bulldozed by Vic Roads, to make way for the expansion of the Great Western Highway. Several hundred people are camping out at the Embassy, just outside of Ararat, preparing to resist the bulldozers and police from moving in and destroying the site.
Saturday’s Sydney march was organised by the Anticolonial Asian Alliance and sought to bring attention to the current plight of the Djab Wurrung and to lend support to those at the front line down at the Embassy.
