Western Australian Senator Peter Georgiou, will today lead a convoy of One Nation Parliamentarians to Albany, to take part in the final year of the “Centenary of Commemoration” as part of this year’s ANZAC Day festivities.
Senator Georgiou, along with One Nation Senator for New South Wales Brian Burston and PHON WA leader Colin Tincknell will descend on the South Coast to honour and pay homage to the fallen.
“Anzac Day is one of the biggest events on the Australian calendar, and being the last commemorative year of the First World War, I wanted to spend it in Albany” Senator Georgiou said.
“It’s well known that the birth of the ANZAC spirit was born in Albany and I think if we look back on the past 100-years, we’ve got a lot to be thankful for all those thousands of men and women who served our country.
Senator Georgiou said as part of the visit, he was keen to talk to many “Diggers” on what assistance was being provided to veterans who were facing depression and all its associated effects.
“As a nation we are obligated to look after our own and anything less would be an indictment” he said.
During the trip, Senator Georgiou and the entire team will stop in the Wheatbelt town of Narrogin, to meet community members on a range of local issues.
“We’ve got a few meetings with the local council and a few constituents down that way, who want to talk us so we’ll gladly meet them. Our mantra has always been ‘people before politics’.
While in Albany, Senator Georgiou will aim to meet local community groups, including the Albany Junior Soccer Association to make a small donation.
Lest We Forget.
