About @ndy

I live in Melbourne, Australia. I like anarchy. I don't like nazis. I enjoy eating pizza and drinking beer. I barrack for the greatest football team on Earth: Collingwood Magpies. The 2024 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.

    Welcome back. You should repost the blogspot posts on here – the colour scheme on there was so awful I didn’t bother reading half of them!

  2. @ndy says:

    Hmmm. Not a bad idea.

    Sorry about the colour scheme. I hadn’t been back there for a while. Will change.

  3. @ndy says:

    OK, changed template. Better?

  4. weez says:

    @ndy, all I gotta say is…


  5. THR says:

    Welcome back.
    Is the unpleasantness all sorted?

  6. @ndy says:

    weez: you’re a big meanie.

    THR: more or less. I’ll be making what I hope to be one final post on the subject of, and then leaving it at that.

    Nice to have you back on an interactive site… What is with the lack of commentability on blogspot?

    PS. I discovered last week that one of my students is one of the peeps who have been arrested for alleged violence during the G20 protests… fucking hell, he’s 17. What a wasted life it would be for him to end up in prison due to doing what he did, and what was advocated by some political activists. More importantly, what a loss to the movement.

    Direct action is one thing, but there’s no intelligent reason to act in a way that is going to bring repression onto your head (and those of other activists), and actually weaken the long-term prospects of the movement. I know I’m vaguely echoing the disgusting article by Mick, but I think there was a kernel of truth to some of what he was saying.

    I don’t really feel like having this conversation at the moment, but just felt the need to vent a bit. The guy is great, it’s such a waste to risk an activists’ liberty for the sake of half a day of anti-capitalist fun and games…

  8. juancastro says:

    I meant to end on, welcome back 🙂

  9. @ndy says:

    juan: I’ve changed templates. It should be fixed now.

  10. Me says:

    cool blog!

  11. @ndy says:

    Thanks Me; Myself & I agree.

  12. Andrew says:

    Good to have you back Andy. And what about the Melbourne cabbies? And the workers at Boeing’s Fisherman’s Bend plant? Reasons to be cheerful…

  13. @ndy says:

    Cheers Andrew.

    Reasons To be Cheerful? Why, that reminds me…

    1 Boeing Defiance.
    2 Jazz Randyman & the Taxi Drivers.
    3 …

    On a slightly less-positive note, Dave Kerin (Union Solidarity) is being victimised:

    “Union Solidarity coordinator Dave Kerin was served with an an order [April 24] by the Workplace Ombudsman to produce Union Solidarity documents relating to the Boeing dispute by the 8th of May. If Dave fails to comply he faces up to 6 months in prison. We wish to make it clear that we will continue to throw all of our support behind the Boeing workers.”

    Solidarity got the bosses pissing in their pants obviously.

  14. Andrew says:

    I think a move against Union Solidarity has been due for a while and since Dave is the most visual (ie the most active) member they’ll play their old tricks of intimidate, divide and conquer. They’ll find Dave, and US in general, harder to crack than they think. Bastards.
