2017-02-04 Refugee Rally

The Solidarity Choir turned up early to the RAC rally in Hyde Park and sang a few songs to a section of the audience while the crowd gathered. We sang:

  • We Shall Not Give Up The Fight
  • Refuge To A Refugee
  • Anthem (Refugee theme)

We distributed lots of copies of the re-worded Advance Australia Fair before the last song so that people could sing along.

Just as we finished, we were spontaneously invited to the microphone to start the rally with a song. About eight of us crowded around the solitary mic and sang another round of the re-worded Anthem (Refugee theme), supported by audience members who sang along a second time.

After the rally we sang on a street corner then in an air-conditioned shopping mall before going our separate ways.
