150,000 Protest Against Howard's Industrial Reform

Indymedia Reports 150,000 Protest Against Howard's Industrial Reforms

Indymedia estimated 150 000 people demonstrated against the proposed industrial relations reforms today in Melbourne. The massive crowd stretched from Federation Square up to Carlton Gardens. As expected ALP reps were out in force to capitalise on the discontent but interestingly the video of Bob Brown got a much bigger cheer than that of Kim Beazley, a nice contrast to the previous demo where workers were seen chanting "Beazley, Beazley".

  • Australia Govt WorkChoices Policy
  • The demo was a slightly quiet and a bit of a dordle and dominated by speeches but the huge crowd certainly put a smile on most people's faces.
