Commemorate your peace heroes!
The Honour Roll for Peace at Addison Road was inaugurated on 28th of October 2016, marking the centenary of the WWI vote against conscription in Australia.
At the gates of a former military depot (opened in 1916) and the site of anti-conscription protests during the Vietnam War, the Honour Roll for Peace is the first of its kind in this country. It records the names of people and groups from Sydney and beyond who have resisted war or sought the just and peaceful resolution of conflicts at home and overseas.
This project will be funded through community subscription, with the creation and installation of the plaques co-ordinated by the Addison Road Community Centre Organisation.
