G20 Brisbane Protest: Jessica K Photography
Today Ash and myself went out to Brisbane city and ended up in a protest! We had previously known that there would be a few on today, they all mashed together into one big hoard and there we were!
The main issues were:-Climate change
-Asylum seekers mistreatment
-Tony Abbot as a whole...
-Criminalisation of homelessness
-People before corporations and life before profit
As we entered there was just these guys singing and dancing around with angel wings, chanting "Clean energy is divine"
The protest was lead by the aboriginal elders who lead by speaking about the importance of love and respect for all people and opinions. This was really the energy of the whole day; love and respect.
And they didn't even offer scholarships
The amount of police was surreal
Capitalism isn't working
This was my favourite sign by far
These guys were just playing funky music the whole time, it was great
The Chinese were by far the most organised, they're protesting on the topic of the forced Organ Harvesting upon innocent chines civilians (more info: http://www.stoporganharvesting.org/)
As the march ended and we entered the park everyone became aware that we had left as many, but arrived a one. This is what was shouted as we moved into one large "mob" - everyone was there as an individual that was part of a greater whole.
