Grafiiti from the Battle of Melbourne

S11 Graffiti

Graffiti has always been a mode of expression for ideas outside of the mainstream. In Melbourne September 11 - 13, 2000 outside the World Economic Forum meeting in the Crown Casino, huge numbers used chalk and paint to tell the world why they were there, and what was going on. As one piece said, "I can't afford to buy off the media, so I buy paint".

Changed the capitalisation so as to make for easier reading, but haven't changed spelling – Joe Carolan (SWO Waikato).

Their greed will kill you

Equate anarchy with justice

Graffiti is a wonderful tool: buy your can today (=$3)

Liberty or death

It's becos we don't want to be bored

WEF - crime wave in progress


your affluence is killing us

There'd be enough for the needs of all, but for the greed of a few

Do a cop a favour, beat yourself up

Proudly unaustralian

No money, anywhere, anytime

In order to move on from Jurassic social policy, some social dinosaurs
have to become extinct

Don't feed the animals
(on the wall around the casino, which large numbers of police stood
behind the whole 3 days)

I think, therefore I'm unaustralian


Pigs behind bars, a grand concept

Go well, Go Shell, Go to Hell!

Never mind what's been selling, its what you're buying

First world wealth = third world death

perma-culture not consumer culture

Che lives

Stop gambling with lives

Fight war, not wars

Do they look like thugs or what
(on the wall)

Don't buy papers, take Action

Make Crown a prison, the criminals are already inside

Globalise Resistance

Victorian police protect criminals

Want violence? Try mining!

Such little boys, such big toys...

We live in a society, not an economy

We are all lost in our own forest, but gazing at the same sky

Such big batons - do they have a penis complex?

Welcome to Howard's relaxed and comfortable Australia

Revolution - right here, right now

Blame the USA!

I always do

We make it, they take it


Big Mac - not so big anymore

Lesbian solidarity

Children of the earth Unite and Take Over!

Money is a social construct

Ronald McDonald felches pigs

Fuck the pink dollar, sexuality is not 4 sale

See you in Sydney

Exist and Resist

The war 4 our streets begins with you

Crown is a maggot colony

Down with a world where the guarantee you won't die of starvation has
been purchased with the guarantee that you will die of

This is Kulin land

responsible protester was 'ere 2000

Economise this, you WEF scum

Sabotage will set us free, throw a rock in the machine

No future without revolution

Bread not batons

Clowns against capitalism are go!

Weed not greed

Money is not my God

Money makes the world go square

Demand the impossible!

Break the Bank
Defund the Fund
Dump the Debt
Power to the People

Bad spellers of the world untie

Kites + balloons stop WEF choppers

Nike we are not your slaves

Human dignity is more important than greed

Cancel the 'debt'

Free trade = slave trade

We're still here

John Howard = lowlife coward
Peter Reith = bloody thief
Peter Costello well he just plain sux

Where's constable care?
There's only constable corrupt

We are winning

Capitalism sux

The faces of capitalist oppression have no names
(after all police removed name badges)

Shoot cops not smack

John Howard is unaustralian

No, he's very Australian
Australia is genocide

Chemical drugs not chemical weapons

Work hard, make your boss rich

The true revolutionary is guided by feelings of great love

Problem: Capitalism
Solution: Revolution

Work together

By any means necessary


The whole world's watching... mainstream media

Kill your television

Share the wealth

Don't hate the media, become the media

Sure you can say whatever we want you to say

Who elected corporate rule?

Patent Greed!

Rupert Murdoch - what a wanker

Clown Cassino

These are not the droids you're looking for

Corporate world = hell on earth

Think for yourself, but only because WE told you to

Gamble your world away

Can you trust a private commercial media?

USA's over

Cops: Rebel against your overpaid bosses!

Don't get rid of graffiti, get rid of the Filth

3rd world poverty c/o WEF

You are under 24 hour surveillance

You better believe it

The more you consume the less you live

Open your mouth
Close your hand
... make a fist

You can't eat money

Eat the rich!

No war between nations, No peace between classes
