When: Wednesday, September 19, 2018 at 05:30 PM
An Apple megastore does not belong in Fed Square and we need to take to Our City, Our Square to make our voices heard.
Join a free rally at Fed Square on Wednesday 19 September 2018 from 5:30pm.
At 6.00pm SHARP we will have our photo taken with the Yarra Building, hopefully not for the last time. This is the building that will be demolished to make way for the Apple megastore.
Bring family, friends, and work mates. We look forward to seeing you there.
Spread the word and show how much you care for public space – before it's too late for Fed Square.
Confirmed speakers include: Simon Ambrose (CEO, Victorian National Trust), Colleen Peterson (CEO, Ratio Planning Consultants) and Councillor Rohan Leppert (Arts, Culture and Heritage Portfolio Chair, City of Melbourne). Additional speakers TBC.
Fed Square is not free to hire. Help us by donating for the Fed Square NOT Apple Square Rally and visit the Flagship Store for Our City, Our Square merchandise.

FED SQUARE NOT APPLE SQUARE
We need to band together to convince our politicians to start listening to our views. Because right now, our politicians are spending too much time listening to Apple and its corporate lobbyists.
