Friday: Rally for refugees.
‘On August 3 we held yet ANOTHER spirited rally to show our support for refugees locked up in detention, and our opposition to the new racist policies of the two major parties!
Yet again, the people who came voted to protest once more! On Friday August 9th, 5:00pm in Rundle Mall (Mall’s Balls). Abuse of refugees has become a bipartisan affair, and we’re coming out in protest once again to show both Rudd and Abbott that we’re NOT going to let them get away with this, and we’re not letting this slide in our name.
Come to the Mall on Friday night. Bring your loudest voices, your brightest placards, and your best chants. Keep showing that we will not be silent!’
Sunday: For our next reading group we will be studying the original IWW (Industrial Workers of the World), nicknamed the ‘Wobblies’. They are the most well-known syndicalist union (if not exactly anarcho-syndicalist) and the most interesting revolutionary organisation in Unites States history. The text we are reading is here. We will be reading the text out loud and discussing it on the day, so you do not need to read it beforehand. Anyone is welcome. 2 til 4PM Sunday, Mad Mouse Alley, behind 129 Currie St (enter off Light Square).
Sunday night, What’s Up Doco are screening the movie The Coconut Revolution.
‘THE COCONUT REVOLUTION is a modern day tale of an indigenous people’s victory over western colonial powers. The Pacific island of Bougainville rose up armed with little more than stones and arrows against mining giants Rio Tinto. Tired of seeing their environment destroyed and their people mistreated, the people took control of the island. With the government cutting supplies to the island and surrounding them with a floating military blockade, the people once again took matters into their own hands , creating what has been refered to as the worlds first ‘eco-revolution!
