Peter Norman Day Street Party

Image and text taken from here.

"A few local Newtown residents recently inspired by the film "Salute" have decided that Peter Norman Day which has a special day in the U.S. needs to be marked here in Australia. So come and celebrate the life of Peter Norman and remember the 1968 Mexico Olympics action that gave hope to a generation.

Please gather for fun at a good old community street party at the side laneway of MacDonaldtown Station, Leamington Lane to Pine St at the site of the 'Three Proud Men' famous mural. Forget late night shopping and come on down on Thursday October 9th, 5 till 9pm.

Sign the petition to lobby RailCorp to replace the current sound barrier with a see-through panel so the mural can be seen from the trains once again.

Performers, MCs, DJs, soapbox, kids' face-painting etc."
