Message from the editor: Martin Place
We at Galus Australis extend our deepest condolences to the families of Tori Johnson and Katrina Dawson. We wish the surviving hostages a speedy recovery.
Monday’s events shook us as a nation and we will no doubt see and feel their effects in the weeks and months to come.
Galus Australis applauds the solidarity that thousands of average Australians demonstrated, in spontaneous efforts like the #illridewithyou movement and in the tributes paid at Martin Place today.
At this time, when our nation is reeling from a horror we rarely have to contemplate, Galus Australis calls on all Australians to step forward and affirm that Australia remains a peaceful and tolerant country, because we – the peaceful majority – make it so.
