"Not In Our Name": Australians March for Justice
Tue, 3/18/2014 - by OPTICAL ALKEMI (J.Dujon.P)

"Not in Our Name" is a short documentary montage of the March In March in Melbourne, Australia, on Sunday. Australians gathered at three days of peaceful assemblies, non-partisan citizens’ marches and rallies at Federal Parliament and around Australia to protest government decisions that are against the common good of the nation.

The action signifies a vote of no confidence in government policies and decisions that go against common principles of humanity, decency, fairness, social justice and equity, democratic governance, responsible global citizenship and conserving Australia's natural heritage.
