As Midnight Oil demands Reclaim Australia stop playing songs, Lee Kernaghan refuses
by Peter Vincent
Midnight Oil has asked the organisers of the anti-Muslim Reclaim Australia rallies to stop playing its songs, but country star Lee Kernaghan - who was Australian of the Year in 2008 - has stopped short of doing so.
MIdnight Oil's Short Memory was played at a Reclaim Australia rally in Adelaide recently. The band issued the following statement to Fairfax:
"Midnight Oil does not endorse Reclaim Australia in any way.
"We ask that no Midnight Oil songs are played or used by the organisation. We are in favour of a tolerant Australia, made up of many cultures."
