Fremantle -Change the name to Walyalup

This petition had 7 supporters

The push to change the date of Australia Day has led to divisions within the community on what should be a unifying day.We cannot rewrite history but we can move forward in the spirit of mutual respect.

We believe it is easier to change the name of Fremantle to disconnect it from its violent past and the cruel imprisonment of both black and white people.

We respect the achievements of Admiral Fremantle. However,it is time for a plebiscite of Fremantle residents to see if they wish to change the name to Walyalup (place of tears ) or another name that resonates a positive message  with the community.
