Anzac Day Gallipoli Tours 2016
From the 1960s, but especially in the 1970s and 1980s, Anzac Day became increasingly controversial in both Australia and New Zealand. The day was used by anti-Vietnam War protesters to agitate against that war and war in general, and ceremonies were later targeted by feminists, anti-nuclear campaigners, Maori activists and others. From about the late 1980s, however, there was an international resurgence of interest in World War I and its commemorations. Anzac Day attendances rose in Australia and New Zealand, with young people taking a particular interest. Anzac Day Gallipoli Tours 2016 Protests and controversy became much rarer. anzac day turkey

With the coming of the Second World War, Anzac Day became a day on which to commemorate the lives of Australians and New Zealanders lost in that war as well and in subsequent years. The meaning of the day has been further broadened to include those killed in all the military operations in which the countries have been involved.

Anzac Day has been annually commemorated at the Australian War Memorial ever since. anzac tours turkey

The first year in which all the Australian states observed some form of public holiday together on Anzac Day was 1927.

Gallipoli-Anzac-CoveGallipoli Tours Turkey 2016 Brendan Nelson has let me down. One of the very few advantages of appointing someone so obviously unsuitable as director of the Australian War Memorial was the expectation that the memorial would lead Australia in the production, exhibition and sale of cheap, tacky and deeply inappropriate Gallipoli memorabilia.

 

Perhaps of a type that might even help underwrite the cost and ghastliness of the vast, cheap, tacky and highly inappropriate ”celebrations” of Anzac Day being planned for the glorification of politicians and pseudo-patriotism on April 25 two years hence.  Anzac Tours turkey 2016
