#ChangeTheDate of Australia Day to the 1st of January

I support the view that the current date is inappropriate not only because the First People know it as Invasion Day but it celebrates the establishment of a penal colony by a foreign country. At that time "Australia" was not even the name of our country.

I say we need to celebrate the establishment of Australia as an independent nation and not the establishment of a dumping ground for the poor and criminal population of Britain.
