Statement on the use of Solidarity Park

The WA Union movement in no way supports nor endorses the use of Solidarity Park for the Reclaim Australia Rally to be held on the 19th of July, 2015.

Solidarity Park is a place of special significance to the WA union movement, particularly because it includes a memorial to workers who have died at work.

WA unions condemn the attempts of other groups to misappropriate union symbolism by using Solidarity Park and the Eureka flag.

There is no place in Western Australia for discrimination or racism and WA unions believe in equality, tolerance and fairness. We reject racism and discrimination in all forms.

A short history of Solidarity Park can be found here.

More information on the multicultural nature of the Eureka stockade can be found here.
