ANZAC Eve Peace Vigil – Cairns

Margaret Pestorius, Trisha Gates, and Maria from Digger Street Art Collective organised a small ANZAC Eve Vigil at the Esplanade Cenotaph, in solidarity with the Canberra event.  20 or so showed up, mostly peace and social justice activists of many years standing.  Joseph Pestorius took these photos.
