When in Hobart, make sure that you visit Salamanca Market, which operates each Saturday, from 8:00am to 3:00pm. Near the Parliament Building you'll find an artwork called 'The Yellow Line' by Justy Phillips. It is a project funded by Rainbow Tasmnaia and the Hobart City Council to commemorate an incident that occurred in the market in 1988, when the then Council called on police to arrest 130 people for trespass because they had signed a petition calling on the Tasmanian Parliament to repeal laws that criminalised homosexual acts. The artwork consists of two separate lines - "In the wake of your courage I swim" and "Forgive me for not holding you in my arms" - photos are included in a News item dated 17 May 2013.
