Remembering something

On Saturday the community of Nimbin re-enacted the scene from exactly 30 years ago when police raided the Nimbin community of Tuntable Falls, placing many of the 42 under arrest in a cattle truck for transport to a mustering area. This time the residents placed mock police (there were no real police to be found) into a cattle truck, had a smoke-in and listened to live music and short speeches lamenting 30 years of police harassment and celebrating 30 years of Nimbins peaceful resistance to such attacks on civil and personal rights.

By the way, the raids in 76 were conducted illegally and charges were dropped.
