ANZAC services celebrate a changing Australia

Mullumbimby ANZAC march.

Mullumbimby ANZAC Day Dawn Service and March will be taking place this Wednesday, 25 April and everyone is welcome to attend this or the main service.

‘The significant thing is that 100 years ago we went to war to support an Empire and a white Australia,’ said Paul Smith, president of the Mullumbimby sub-branch of the RSL.

‘Now we are a multi-cultrual society who support self-determination here and anywhere we can in the world. The ANZAC spirit has been constant but what it seeks to preserve now has changed along with the values of our society.’

The Dawn Service will begin at 4.30am at the Cenotaph opposite the Mullumbimby ex-services club while people gathering for the main service are asked to gather just before 11am at the Cenotaph.

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.”
