APEC – 7 000+ take to Sydney streets – some pics

with 6 comments

For APEC highlights so far, this story’s quite cute (and accurate).

Otherwise, sit back and enjoy the ambience of a non-specific something-for-everybody public demo where the overzealous police ministers and the dumbass songsheet media might have actually not got what they were expecting for once. It works better if you can imagine a soundtrack something like *rabble rabble rabble rabble*. It was the most bloody Australian that Sydney’s been all week. Good on youse. 😉

interesting random fact: Hitler’s funky SS uniforms were designed by Hugo Boss. Truly.

as for the very last one. . . some people may think it gives guidance as to how the Australian election later this year might tip. . . but they would be mistaken . . . because to vote here you have to be over 18 . . . and this specially modified John Howard poster…

  1. I’m going to give ASIO a buzz & ask for the contact details of all these protesters ‘cos I’ve simultaneously got the hots for the lot of them. Especially the 15 year old.

    t.i.n.a.: LARF?! I picture Minister Downer wearing Amanda Vanstone as a feedbag, and i think “Casey’s call is as funny as my thought is gross”. Bernice’s KBK is pretty funny too though. They’d have to be amputees but, no armholes that i could see. Hmm. Amputee KKK?…. Sounds like a better way to end a movement than to start one…. Hmm…

  2. […] The true state of the protest march, and what the media would most likely have had to report on had the police presence and constant referrals to ‘violence’, is beautifully captured in these photos. Typing is not activism also has pretty pictures. […]

  3. WMDs? I thought ’em the Klu Black Klan – the papier mache JWH which dissolved in the rain had a nice Wicked Witch of the West quality about it, I thought.

  4. Thanks for ur little report of events. Seems all was very positive apart from as usual, dickhead police. I shall load up a few of ur pics thx, very nice work 😉

    t.i.n.a.: cheers Sid – a whole protest around the ‘Barbara should have swallowed’ theme would have really been something eh?

  5. Cheers for the pics (and I assume you don’t mind the one I put up on my post!) I especially like the mutant Kangaroo!

    t.i.n.a.: thanks & go for it – not much point putting them up if nobody sees them 🙂
