A headstone erected above a black, coffin shaped speaker at Sunday's lockout laws rally read ""Sydney, 1788-2014, Taken before its time."

There were many other brilliant signs that demonstrators made and took to the peaceful rally to revoke Sydney's lockout laws. They protested against staff losing jobs, venue shutdowns and the damage the laws have had to Sydney's nightlife and live music scene. It was a call to action, and more than 15,000 Sydneysiders listened.
