The 1916 - 17 anti-conscription vote
Commemorate the 100-year anniversary of the two referendums on conscription.
2017 is the 100-year anniversary of the second of two referendums on conscription.
In 1917, in the midst of the war, Australian anti-conscription campaigners succeeded in defeating the introduction of conscription by a greater margin than the 1916 referendum.
Commemoration of the anniversary will begin with the launch of Matt Blackwood’s Yes No artwork and will be followed by refreshments and a talk by a local historian who will discuss the impact and legacies of the anti-conscription campaign.
