"If you know of someplace where it's written that it's permissible to use [this] money to commemorate Independence Day as a tragedy, then tell me." Australia. It's founding narrative is tied to Australia Day (Jan. 26), the national holiday that commemorates the arrival of the British. Yet the aboriginal peoples of Australia prefer to remember the day as Invasion Day, a narrative which is discussed alongside the national narrative in primary school curricula. Certainly, there is no law preventing public funds from being used to promote this narrative, whether or not it undermines Australia Day as a national symbol.
