This January 26, mob all around the country have had to reinvent how they protest, mourn and resist the ongoing injustices of colonialism with a number of events moving online.

Meeanjin/Brisbane’s Invasion Day rally 2022 will be going ahead albeit on a smaller scale and with COVID safety measures in place.

Kicking off at 9am at Queens Gardens for speeches and a welcome to country, the march will begin at 10am before finishing at Musgrave park.

Protestors have been instructed to wear masks, socially distance or stay home if they’re feeling unwell.

Wangerriburra and Birri Gubba man Sam Watson Jr said there will be a livestream of the event available online for those wanting to show their support from home.
