Hon. Bob Carr
Honourable John Robertson and Senator Sam Dastyari would like to invite you to
an exclusive event to celebrate THE BRILLIANT CARR ERA.
This special evening will celebrate the career and achievements of Bob Carr, including 40 years of service to the ALP, serving as the longest NSW Premier, and his success as a popular Foreign Affairs Minister (especially in light of his pro-Palestine stance which he moved a motion for at the recent NSW ALP State Conference ).

with ethnic communities. He had a special interest and relationship with the

at an Iftar marking ten years since he started the tradition of celebrating and
breaking fast together at NSW Parliament House with politicians and various
Again at this event, there will also be many other Federal and State MP's attending and we hope to have as many Pakistani, subcontinent and ethnic community leaders attend this special tribute to a great man.
