On April 4 2017, nearly 14000 kilometres away, a crime against humanity took place.
A suspected chemical attack carried out by Syrian Government jets killed more than 70 people, including a number of children.
Yet it’s not trending on Facebook, and many news outlets aren’t even featuring the story on their homepage.
The footage is said to be far too graphic to show. Babies are convulsing. The hospitals designed to help the desperate have been bombed. Innocent people are covered head to toe in blood.
But today, there is no Syrian flag waving on top of our Harbour Bridge.
