Street Scene Dunedin

I attended an interesting protest action today on behalf of the Alliance Party with a couple of other local activists.

A local disability group called Gutted is asking for better treatment for those with disabilities and their caregivers. It was a small but very spirited demo and made the TV3 news.

Earlier on I had helped out briefly at the Radio One market day in the big hall on an Alliance stall trying to raise some money for the campaign. Good to be getting out and talking to the people. Some of the students were surprisingly up with the play. It’s hard to believe it was ten years ago when I was working at the Critic newspaper down there and fifteen years since I saw BailterSpace play a mindblowing set at Orientation 1990 in that same big hall. Beer in plastic glasses never tasted so good.
