HOBART’S Invasion Day rally continues to increase in attendance, according to its organisers.
More than 300 people marched through central Hobart to Parliament lawns to call for the date of Australia Day to be changed.
Tasmanian Aboriginal activist Michael Mansell said the rally was getting bigger every year.
He said the only significance of January 26 was the arrival of white Australians, which meant Australia Day was a ‘‘race-based national day’’.
