Sydney CBD 
Saturday 21 January 2017
11AM – 2PM AEST
Meet at Hyde Park South and then we’ll march to Martin Place
Event Details

Meet at the Pool of Reflection in Hyde Park South at 11am.

We will open the event with a Welcome to Country, followed by speakers and then we will march. Our route will proceed north to Park Street, right on Pitt Street through the Pitt Street Mall, right on King Street, left on Elizabeth Street, and into Martin Place to finish in front of the MLC Centre (home to the United States’ Consular Office). There we will finish with a call-to-action ceremony. Feel free to wear white in solidarity with the suffragettes. Otherwise, you’ll definitely want to bring some water, a hat, sunscreen and an umbrella as this is an outdoor event.

We have secured permits with the City and will continue to work with both the Sydney Police Commission Events Planning Unit and the City of Sydney Venue Management Department to ensure this will be safe and successful event.
