Last night Helen and Lorena spent some time at the Redfern Community Centre to be part of Amnesty Redfern Action Group's Community Is Everything Launch. They were collating a community-collaborated poem on Twitter, with visitors adding a short line throughout the night. Here is the heartfelt result! Community gathers together.
Sunset stars kids on the swings waiting for the moon.
Together side by side.
Clarion from the rooftops. It's only ever been now! And it's time
Our future kids deserve unity from the community.
Nurturing communities for our kids' future.
Let's look to locate an environment in which young people are nourished and cherished.
Don't be late.
I can't bear what's happening in the 21st century.
