Inner West celebrates World’s Indigenous People

10577009_796401493727298_4882535465559039298_nThis weekend multicultural communities across the Inner West will celebrate the 20th anniversary of the ‘International Day of the World’s Indigenous People’.

I look forward to marking this occasion with the Nepalese community at Petersham Town Hall on Sunday.

This year’s theme is ‘bridging the gap: implementing the rights of indigenous people’.

I congratulate the Nepalese Indigenous Nationalities from Australia (NINFA) for their hard work in organising this celebration.

The diversity of the Inner West is what makes it such a great place to live.

I am pleased to be able to join our local Nepalese community to celebrate this.
