I would have thought Canberra would be the place to be...but its awful quiet..havent heard of any road blocks.  or megaphones...maybe its a silent protest.



It's on Monday, but I dare say you would need to rip yourself away from the home office.....to see anything that's going on in the outside world, including Canberra's huge unemployment and homeless situation.

sounds like it was a bit of a dud.  no reports of any marches anywhere nevermind the massed millions.

perhaps it was the generalist 'we hate abbott' that wasn't much of a cause.


Well, no.

The videos and pics posted on their Farce-book page suggest otherwise.

Videos that were sent to the MSM but were ignored.

The marchers weren't 'ferals' or 'rent-a-crowd' either.

And there have been reports that people who rang the MSM to ask why the
marches weren't being covered, were hung-up-on.



The march that I am involved in has notified all the local media, waiting to see if any have the guts to turn up AND film.

I'm sure there will plenty of film on independent media though, but neo fascists aren't about to look there, it might upset their sensibilities to see that so many people hate the Abbott government.

NOT IN MY NAME ABBOTT

It'll be good to get on record who the most politically ignorant, biased, screwed up wankers in Australia are.  Gotta be a very small minority.  Roll Eyes

Yes, although I was not in front of my keyboard at the time...

Get out more.

Not spent much time in front of it lately...  still no marches crossed my path and I am not dumb enough to actually march for such a moronic cause.  you?


Which specific cause is that you speak of?

The reason no body saw anything is because the march is TODAY in the major cities, yesterday was just regional areas like Dawin and other regional towns. The major town
closest to where I live had thousands out. I must say I was  interested to see some of the banners though, it looked like everything that Abbott has pissed off the voters about was being protested about. CSG, gay marriage, workers rights, penalty rates, saw them all, not good news for Abbott. The protest I saw yesterday was the biggest I have seen since the illegal invasion of Iraq  and that was in a National party electorate, don't think he'll be around long.

Thanks for clarifying.

So in effect, by your own admission, you are not dumb enough to march for that cause, but too ignorant to have researched deeper than ideological one eyed diatribe to actually find out what it was about.

Awesome work.

The stand out best thing about yesterday, in my region at least, was the remarkable cross section of people that turned up. Yes there were some Abbott haters there, well der like there wouldn't be. Unlike the convoy of incompetence though there were myriad issues raised, many to do with the actual system that has been inflicted on us (The Australian population) by self interested politicians of all ilks and the imbeciles who genuinely believe that one team will look after us better than the other. Wake up, Australian politics directly or indirectly looks after big business (yep both sides do ultimately) and politicians. Any crumbs dropped to idiot voters is purely to keep them dumb and voting.

It was refreshing yesterday to be chatting with a Liberal voting local identity who had come to realise that our system is flawed. Yep a relatively staunch lib at the protest that you reckon was simply a Mr Abbott hate fest.

Good work confirming my view on rusted ons...Regardless of their chosen brand.

That's right, people from both sides of the fence and those in between.

It's a march to show a vote of "no confidence in the coalition government".

I think that many people will be going to voice their dislike of the political system in general. They want change, they can see the country is heading in the wrong direction, probably hoping that it creates some long term movement for change.

BOTR!!!

Nope, no errors pointed out there, try again.

You have clearly highlighted your myopic view, of itself, hypocritical yet point that to others. Yet another atypical one sided rusted on view. It must truly erk lieberal and lieber supporters when it is highlighted to you how you are so much alike....

Anyway, carry on. Got real life things to do that are far more meaningful than this circle jerk conversation.  Cry Cry Cry
