G20: Solidarity Action

Tonight’s benefit gig went off like cheese.

Sweet.

This coming Tuesday, March 20, the four people arrested in Sydney will be appearing at the Melbourne Magistrates’ Court. A solidarity demonstration has been called for, at 9am. The Court is located at 233 Williams Street. Oh, and in late April / early May, Barricade will be screening a new (2006) documentary film by Roy Wallace (Toxic Waste) on anarcho-punk, called The Day The Country Died. It’s really really… good. Stay tuned for more details.

The story of the anarcho-punk movement is told by some of the most influential performers, including: Penny Rimbaud (Crass), Colin Jerwood (Conflict), Colin & Kevin (Flux of Pink Indians), Dick Lucas (Subhumans), Zillah Minx (Rubella Ballet), Gary Buckley (Dirt), Steve Lake (Zounds), Mark Wallis (Liberty), Gee Vaucher (Crass), Dave Hyndman (Hit Parade), Rob Miller (Amebix), Rodney Relax (Alternative), Stringy & Snout (Erratics) and Gerard Evans (Flowers in the Dustbin). The interview footage is laced with both audio and visual music performance from the main performers on the scene including Crass, Conflict, Subhumans, Liberty, Toxic Waste, Chumbawamba, Sacrilege & many more. A classic mix of exclusive new interviews and ultra-rare archive footage goes a great way to telling at least some of the history…

Dewey Finn: Give up, just quit, because in this life, you can’t win. Yeah, you can try, but in the end you’re just gonna lose, big time, because the world is run by the Man. The Man, oh, you don’t know the Man. He’s everywhere. In the White House… down the hall… Ms. Mullins, she’s the Man. And the Man ruined the ozone, he’s burning down the Amazon, and he kidnapped Shamu and put her in a chlorine tank! And there used to be a way to stick it to the Man. It was called rock ‘n’ roll, but guess what, oh no, the Man ruined that, too, with a little thing called MTV! So don’t waste your time trying to make anything cool or pure or awesome ’cause the Man is just gonna call you a fat washed up loser and crush your soul. So do yourselves a favor and just give up!

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 2023 premiership's a cakewalk for the good old Collingwood.
