The March Australia movement – Evolution
March Australia volunteers advocate for social justice and equity in our communities. In January 2014, three months after the Abbott Coalition government came to power, March Australia was established as a grassroots social media-based people’s movement under the banner “The People United for Better Government” to protest the government’s socially regressive decisions and policies.
In March 2014 over 100,000 people took part in the March in March protest rallies in over thirty locations nationwide to voice their concerns.
Since then March Australia has developed as an alliance of people around the nation working to inform the public of government policies and decisions which affect Australia’s social cohesion and environmental integrity.
March Australia volunteers communicate with the public via regional March Australia Facebook pages to highlight issues affecting our inclusive, multicultural, tolerant and equitable community.
March in March (and MARCH AUSTRALIA ACTIVIST INTERCHANGE) is organising Marches in March in 2017.
