M8, let's move Australia Day to May 8!
Move Australia Day to May 8th basically because M8 means 'Mate' - and mateship is central to the Australian identity. Rather than seeking just to move Australia Day, moving it to a specific and neutral date makes it solution orientated and a positive thing.
Why is this important?
Because Australia Day is a traumatic anniversary for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders. By moving it, we can help reconcile all Australians and truly celebrate an Australia Day without any negative connotations. On May 8. Go on M8, sign up!
