ANZAC Day 2016

UMSU deeply respects the sacrifices made by the servicewomen and men, especially those made by members of our University community.

In honour of the sacrifices made, UMSU will make a donation in lieu of laying a wreath this ANZAC Day. Two donations of $100 each will be made out to Legacy Australia and Phoenix Australia: Centre for Posttraumatic Stress Mental Health.

While UMSU appreciates the symbolism of laying a wreath in remembrance for all victims of war, and we support any students or members of our community choosing to lay a wreath, we prefer to donate directly to causes directly aid victims of conflict.

MOTION:
Student’s council to move two sums of $100 from Whole of Union budget line to be donated to Legacy Australia and Phoenix Australia.
