Online Poll regarding the demolition of Australia’s first Coptic Church


We have created this online poll to create awareness and send a strong message against the demolition of Australia’s first Coptic Church at Sydenham.

We have received multiple enquiries since the recent media report announcing plans by Marrickville City Council to demolish Australia’s first Coptic Orthodox Church established in 1968.

Today we remember the 4th anniversary of this great crime, the martyrs, the injured and their families.

We will never forget the Maspero Massacre and we hope that this case may be seriously addressed.
