I received this email earlier, and thought I would go ahead and post it here. Obviously, being in the US, this isn’t something I can take part in myself, but I thought I would pass it along to any of you in Australia who might be interested!
I just want to let all those interested know that a group of people
called FAVAG (Forgotten Australians Victoria Action Group)has been
protesting each week…
Sunday morning 10am – 12pm outside St Patricks Cathedral, Cnr
Gisbourne St & Cathedral place, Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
We are protesting against former and current child abuse from the

or in the very least forwarding this information to anyone who may be
interested in attending, we would be so grateful!
After the next month or so, protests may be likely to change venue,
for more information pleas go to the FAVAG website:
Thankyou for your time.
