ANZAC Day

ANZAC Day

One clear message emerges from all the recent discussions, arguments, and skirmishes in connection with Anzac Day: if a public ceremony is to be held on public premisses, then the Wellington City Council is abdicating its public duty in handing over responsibility to the R.S.A. or for that matter any other private organisation. It's no excuse to say that it has been that way for a very long time - that's merely proof they've been repeating the evasion for a very long time.

With the City Council elections due in October, I suggest the Association Executive lose no time in approaching the Mayor and all prospective councillors with a view to getting a firm undertaking for Anzac Day 1972 and subsequently.
