The massive turnout for the referendum 10 years ago today was a testament to the courage of ordinary people. Today is a day to celebrate.

The site is well worth checking out today.
Also, I recommend a Youtube viewing of the Australian series “Answered by Fire” which many have told me does justice to the events preceding and following the referendum.
