Association of Ukrainians in Victoria
Stand against the Russian war in Ukraine
World Grievance Day of Mourning
March 27 – National Neighbour Day
An opportunity for people of good will to bear witness and to step back from the brink of nuclear destruction in solidarity with the suffering of all the people within Ukraine.
Families and persons of goodwill are invited to gather, preferably in mourning with a black arm band, at Tom’s Block immediately opposite the National Gallery at 1.00 pm on Sunday March 27.
The aim is to highlight the uncertainty for a world on the brink of nuclear destruction. It will be a silent vigil in recognition of Ukraine’s suffering and the potential nuclear destruction hanging over the planet. The invitation invites all people concerned at the plight of Ukraine in the light of Putin and Russia’s atrocities to stand for peace in solidarity with our local Ukrainian community.
The gathering will hear directly from Stefan Romaniw, Chair of the Australian Federation of Ukrainian Organisations who has recently returned from the conflict, as well as local community leaders on the significance of the conflict to all of us.
