Thousands March in Sydney 'Invasion Day' Rally on Australian National Holiday

Thousands of people marched in Sydney on Australia Day protesting against the date of the public holiday.

Activists want the date of Australia Day to be changed from January 26 because it marks the first day British colonizers landed in Sydney, Reconciliation Australia said.
