Members and supporters will no doubt be reflective on January 26th, Australia Day. Australia Day is the foremost celebration of cultural Australianism, originating from European Settlement Day, Pioneers Day, and Anniversary Day festivals of our pioneering era, all recognitions of our Australian community and native soil.
In 1886, the Australian Natives Association resolved to January 26th as our National Day, this being the “foundation of Australia”, and as such, it has been celebrated by Aussies down the decades since.
This is our Aussie inheritance, and the connected community and family celebrations of our lifestyle, European-derived identity, unique native-to-the-soil culture and heritage, have all been in our Australia Day for generations.
Australia First intends to keep it.
To the misfits who call for our National Day for January 26th to be dumped; and the despicable toads who prostitute the inheritance of our National Day with citizenship to unwanted, overpopulating Third World aliens, Australia First shouts dump on them!
From Australia Day 1943:
Call up your myths and your legends, your men of song and tale,
men from the Snowy, the Centre, and lakes where the bunyips wail,
your seekers, your finders, your fighters, your men who with Clancy ride,
Lawson’s men from the western creeks, and a thousand more beside.
Call up your ghosts, Australia, and set them riding far
to rouse a sleeping nation to its seven-pointed star.
Call up your dead, Australians, and bid them ride with you
to set your rivers brimming with Eureka’s flood anew.
Call up your hosts, Australia, to strive with you amain,
to fight, to sing, to honour, your Flag of Stars again.
Then when the day is over, whether to shout or to weep,
keep ever your dead alive in you, oh, never let them sleep,
for the nation that forgets its dead, that lets its heroes lie
dust-deep in its mind forever is surely ripe to die.
And only those go on, in glory their story to make,
whoever keep their dead alive, and their heroes awake.
Now is the time for the nation’s urgent dead to ride,
so set them riding here and now –
from the Leeuwin’s cliffs to the roar of
Sydney-side, from Wyndham to the Howe.
