This Saturday, as part of the National Day of Action, Broken Hill for Yes is marching from the front of the courthouse to the town square to raise awareness and share information ahead of the Voice to Parliament Referendum.
Following the march, from 10 am, the Town Square will come alive with music and guest speakers as the group pushes to get accurate information out there to counteract some of the misinformation being shared across social media.
“Not only is it an opportunity for people who would like to see a positive outcome from this referendum, but it is also an opportunity for people who may be undecided and are seeking more information to come along and talk to others and get some information they might need to help make their decision,” said Dionne Devlin, Coordinator for Broken Hill for Yes.
The Broken Hill for Yes campaign has been growing steadily as interest increases the closer the referendum gets. “We have a fantastic team of about 30 volunteers now, which is just fantastic,” Ms Devlin continued.
This Saturday’s rally is just one in a series of upcoming events designed to educate the public before the nation casts its vote on the Voice to Parliament Referendum.
Australia is set to see a wave of similar initiatives, as capital cities and regional centres alike participate in ‘Walks for Yes’ this weekend, adding further momentum to the movement as the October 14 Referendum looms on the horizon.
