Citizens in Australia protest in rejection of the monarchy

The mobilizations in Australia are carried out in cities such as Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide

Hundreds of people mobilized this Thursday in various cities in Australia to demand the end of the monarchy.

This, after the Day of National Mourning was decreed, after the death of Queen Elizabeth II on September 8.

According to information from El Diario, the protests were called by the indigenous group Guerreros de la Resistencia Aborigen, in rejection of "past atrocities" and the colonization carried out by the United Kingdom.

The mobilizations are carried out in cities such as Canberra, Brisbane, Sydney and Adelaide, where the slogans are heard It always was and always will be aboriginal land.

According to a Latin Press office, from the “Warriors of the Aboriginal Resistance” front, one of the organizers of the protest, demanded an end to racist colonial imperialism and its continuing effects on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, who represent the 3,3, 25% of the XNUMX million inhabitants of the country.

It should be remembered that Aboriginal people in Australia are not recognized by the Australian Constitution dating from 1901.

The community has been victims of constant mistreatment since colonization, in addition to being dispossessed of their lands and systematically discriminated against, which is why many of them live in a situation of poverty and inequality.

Faced with this situation, the Australian Prime Minister, Anthony Albanese, promised to hold a referendum during this mandate to make a constitutional change.
