Boundary Streets in Brisbane should be renamed to Boundless Street

This petition had 1,053 supporters

Brisbane street names are outdated and relate to the oppression of Indigenous persons (Murri people of Jagera and Turrbal nations) who were not permitted to cross Boundary streets after curfew (4pm six days a week and completely on Sundays), in the dark history of early Brisbane. Troopers rode the perimeter cracking stock-whips to enforce such tyranny and the persistence of these outdated street names hold the entire city of Brisbane (Meanjin) back from meaningful progression as a city and peoples committed to truthful and respectful harmony.
