Sydney’s inner-west suburb of Newtown is today commemorating the hard work and sacrifice of Australian civil rights activists with a new statue, paid for by the student union of Sydney University.

“We recognise this statue as a man who gave everything to encouraging people to enrol to vote in a non-binding postal plebisicte that will probably be ignored by the coalition government anyway” said Sydney mayor, Clover Moore.

“We know this man knows how much he has done for gay people. We just want everyone who doesn’t have him on Facebook to know”

The Philip Piperides sculpture was inspired by a Facebook status posted by a 2nd-year media student by the name of Sebastian last night, who decided to use his social media platform to inspire an entire echo chamber of university student friends to make sure they were enrolled by the same electoral commission that they voted for Anthony Albanese in last year.

It is currently located in from of a 50 metre lane Aboriginal flag mural that includes the famous “I have a dream” quote of Martin Luther King jnr.

“Sebastian too has a dream, that everyone who lives in sharehouses across the inner-west of Sydney will return home in a week or so to vote YES for marriage equality” said Moore.
