158th Anniversary of the Eureka Rebellion

“We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other & fight to defend our rights & liberties” – Eureka rebellion oath 1854


They swore an oath
Beneath the Southern Cross
That they would stand together
And break the license laws
From twenty different nations
They gathered here as one
In Ballarat
Beneath the southern sun
