After the fantastic news that MOCCA would not be forced to leave its current site, the community gathered to enjoy a wonderful – if somewhat cold – celebration. MOCCA and the team are so grateful to all the people who have supported us over the last couple of uncertain years, and again thank the ACT Government for making the right decision for the Manuka community.
We were honoured to have Duncan Smith and the Wiradjuri Echoes join us for a smoking ceremony to celebrate this “rebirth” for MOCCA. We also hosted Shane Rattenbury (ACT Education Minister), Elizabeth Lee (Liberal MLA) and Rachel Stephen-Smith (Labor candidate for Kurrajong) who demonstrated the support MOCCA has in the political sphere!
Thank you to everyone who braved the snowy weather to acknowledge the successful end to this hard-fought campaign.
