Just a couple of things I want to [re]share today on 26th January: 229 years since Captain Cook raised the British flag on Cadigal land and claimed possession of the whole of the east coast for England…

My favourite Invasion Day t-shirt from Dark and Disturbing Design (great t-shirts – check them out), designed by Vernon Ah Kee and worn with style here by Stevie Goldsmith.

Dark & Deadly and Vernon Ah Kee are also both on twitter.
