Advance Australia Where? with Michael Cooney

Join us for a special event with Michael Cooney, National Director of the Australian Republic Movement.

It has been almost 20 years since the Republic referendum failed, the Opposition has committed to hold a plebiscite on a Republic should it win office, and there's growing disquiet with 26 January as our national day.

In short, there has never been a more important time to hear from the National Director of the Australian Republic Movement.

Michael will make the case for an Australian Republic, quash some myths (we're pretty sure he'll confirm Queenscliff won't have to undergo a name change) and answer questions about the road ahead.

Republicans, monarchists and the undecided are all invited.

3.00pm

Salt Lounge (upstairs at Salt Contemporary Art), 30 Hesse Street, Queenscliff.
