Event

Hundreds are expected to gather for a march to denounce the Education Legislation Amendment (Parental Rights) Bill in central Sydney on Saturday, November 28. Participants will gather at Taylor Square from 13:00 (local time) before marching along Oxford and Elizabeth streets to Hyde Park. The bill has been criticized as it states that parents are responsible for teaching children about gender fluidity and schools in New South Wales are not permitted to include it on their syllabus.

A heightened security presence and localized disruptions to transport are possible in the vicinity of the march. Security forces may enforce coronavirus disease (COVID-19) restrictions on public gatherings if the demonstration exceeds the outdoor protest limit of 500 people.

Advice

Those in Sydney are advised to monitor the situation, avoid the protest sites as a precaution, anticipate delays to transport, and adhere to all instructions issued by local authorities.
