Dear Comrades,

Solidarity Action For Kulon Progo Farmers - 11 January 2010

In response to a call from the Kulon Progo farmers for support from Melburnians (see calendar item), the Melbourne Anarchist Club (MAC) organised a protest outside the Indonesian Consulate in Melbourne this morning. Called at short notice and falling on a day when temperatures were forecast to exceed 45 degrees, the gathering was not surprisingly small(about ten in all), but made its point.
