Australia day , a nice day spent with family or friends, going out having fun. But Australia day isn"t all sunshine and rainbows it has quite a dark history. Australia Day excludes Indigenous Australians. In fact Australia actually commemorates the invasion of the First Fleet, that's is why some people refer to this day as "Invasion Day" or "Day of Mourning". Australia day is supposed to be a happy day not a day of mourning and its should represent all Australians and it should bring us all together as a country to celebrate how beautiful it is here "down under". That is why we should change the date of Australia day to a date that doesn"t represent the day where Aboriginals had their land taken off them
Aboriginal people had been living in Australia for at least 50,000 years before that, and that's why for many Aboriginal people Australia Day is not a celebration - it's a day of mourning. Some people even call it Invasion Day. It is interesting that some Aboriginal people see January 26 as a source of emotional suffering, while others view the very same day as an opportunity to have fun. That being said, there can be no denying that for many Aboriginal people, particularly those who are poor, sick and unemployed living in remote areas of Australia, there will be little reason to celebrate.
