ANZAC Eve

"ANZAC Eve 24 April is where we remember ALL the victims of war.  Where we tell the truth about war." - Margaret Pestorius

People, hear the law 

of the seeds in your lament ––
Dark seeds in the fire
humming like a new song growing … 
–– from A Chorus of Women’s ‘Spirit Songs for Anzac Eve’

As we walk, sing, share stories and make ceremony together we remember that almost everyone in Australia has a family story of trauma and loss through war, including all our Indigenous peoples. 


As we all participate in kindling the Peace Fire we help to re-member what has been dis-membered.

Please note, we are using the Ngunnawal name Yuckenbruck for the mountain that Canberra people also call Mt Ainslie. In local Aboriginal traditions, Yuckenbruck is known as a women’s mountain."
