In terms of ‘wokeness’, also known in conventional circles as respecting cultural diversity, flying a flag is pretty much level 1 on the Richter Scale. Some institutions fly their flags, say the acknowledgments and wear the pins and are still hopeless. But hey, at least they’re giving it a crack.
But if in 2019 you’re still not able to fly a flag on the 26th January, it’s pretty bloody clear you have some serious issues.
So check out the pic of City Hall I took this morning on my way to the Invasion Day rally and the start of the march …
Not just 1 but 7 Australian flags.<sarcasm font> Fantastic effort there Brisbane City Council. </sarcasm font>
BCC do do some good work with community and have some good people working there. But where is the leadership? Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are your constituents too!
Last year, the Queensland Parliament not only flew BOTH flags, they flew them at half-mast out of respect.
Come on BCC, what’s it going to take? Hurry up and get on board. Show leadership and courage.
