STATEMENT FROM THE AIR FORCE ASSOCIATION – VICTORIA

22 September 2021

The Shrine of Remembrance is a place for commemoration, not protest

The Melbourne Shrine of Remembrance is not only a venerated place of commemoration for our veteran community, it also holds a unique standing in our wider Victorian community as place of reverence and reflection.

The Air Force Association - Victoria condemns the use of this sacred place as venue for protest.

There is no justification whatsoever for protestors to gather at the Shrine of Remembrance, a place of commemoration to honour the men and women who served and gave their lives serving their country.

ENDS.
