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)

The true revolutionary is guided by feelings of great love

Gordon Campbell: On That $4 Billion Hit To National’s Economic Cred

National released its economic and tax policy last Friday. Weirdly, the plan was announced right at the end of the news week, when whatever impact it managed to generate would be likely to dissipate over the weekend. Well…. that now seems all for the best. The plan is now known to have a $4 billion hole in it. Apparently, National used outdated figures for the amount it stood to save from NOT paying into the Super Fund. Amusingly, the $4 billion mistake was almost exactly the same size as the $4.7 billion that National still promises to give away in tax cuts... More>>
