Say yes to peace on Anzac Day

The best place to build a more peaceful future is right here in our local community.
Lismore’s own home-grown peace group, Remembering and Healing (RaH) invites everyone in the region and beyond to its annual Anzac Day gatherings in Lismore.
This is a chance for anyone who values peace and social harmony to play an active role in two separate gatherings.
On the eve of Anzac Day, Sunday 24 April, a gathering will be held at Lismore Uniting Church where people of all backgrounds and beliefs come together to share their hopes for the future.
Then, on the following day Monday 25th after the main Anzac Day parade, another gathering is held at Peace Park in Lismore where various speakers talk about a range of topics concerning peace.
So come along and be part of a growing local tradition that gives the whole community a chance to say something positive and loving.
Say ‘yes’ to peace!
R J Poole, Lismore

A note from the editorial team

Some of The Echo’s editorial team: journalists Paul Bibby and Aslan Shand, editor Hans Lovejoy, photographer Jeff Dawson and Mandy Nolan

The Echo has never underestimated the intelligence and passion of its readers. In a world of corporate banality and predictability, The Echo has worked hard for more than 30 years to help keep Byron and the north coast unique with quality local journalism and creative ideas. We think this area needs more voices, reasoned analysis and ideas than just those provided by News Corp, lifestyle mags, Facebook groups and corporate newsletters.

The Echo is one hundred per cent locally owned and one hundred per cent independent. As you have probably gathered from what is happening in the media industry, it is not cheap to produce a weekly newspaper and a daily online news service of any quality.

We have always relied entirely on advertising to fund our operations, but often loyal readers who value our local, independent journalism have asked how they could help ensure our survival.

Any support you can provide to The Echo will make an enormous difference. You can make a one-off contribution or a monthly one. With your help, we can continue to support a better informed local community and a healthier democracy for another 30 years.”
