G20 (black) BLOC PARTY
Well here we go…… Geetwenty fever is well and truly setting in… more and more police are visible around Brisbane city and South Brisbane where the G20 super summer summit will take place.
When we take to the streets on Saturday for the People’s March in the hot hot Brisbane sun the crowd control device of choice would have to be water cannons but the next best thing would have to be the LRAD (rad!) sound systems which the Queensland police are in possession of.
Since we all don’t want to be part of any revolution which doesn’t involved dancing, the ‘free speech zone‘ on Saturday during the march should be lots of fun as long as the po po remember to bring the beats (and blops).
As the march crosses the Kurilpa bridge, everything going as planned, underneath us on the river should be paper boats set sail by the Refugee Action Collective Queensland.
I caught up with Scotia Monkivitch at a boat building workshop on Sunday to find out about Walking Borders a series of actions which are going to culminate with the flotilla of paper boats planned to meet the People’s March.
Don’t want to go to the People’s March try the refugee FLASH MOB.
First of all on the show though The Stimulator gives us a run down on 2 major struggles which are currently happening around the globe. We play the first half of the latest It’s the End of the World as we Know if and I feel FINE!.
We also talk to Brisbane Community Action Network spokesperson Robin Taubenfeld about the People’s Summit which starts tomorrow. You can download the program here.
