Public apology from Department of Veterans Affairs ( DVA ) and RSL Victoria

The banning of Serbian Veterans marching in Thursday’s ANZAC day parade was a poor decision. Do you agree? I am extremely devastated and disappointed as well as the wider Serbian-Australia community for the reasoning behind the ban. The 20 Serbian Veterans who came to march were escorted by Victorian Police due to a complaint made by a racist communist. A complaint was made to the DVA and the RSL Victoria insisting the Serbian Veterans should not be able to march in the ANZAC parade as accused of being linked to the inhuman and tragic incident that occurred in Christchurch. It is clear that the Department of Veterans and RSL Victoria did not think this decision through when banning Serbian Veterans from continuing their march in the parade after decades of peacefully marching and showing respect to the ANZACs. It is only appropriate the Department of Veterans and RSL Victoria revoked this decision despite the damage that can not be undone. We would like a public apology issued to the Serbian Veterans and their families as well as the wider Serbian community.
