Ark Tribe back in court

Ark Tribe the South Australian Construction worker's trial started again today (July 20th) and was greeted once again with rallies around the country in solidarity. Ark is being tried for refusing to appear before the draconian ABCC introduced by Howard and kept by Rudd/Gillard. Ark was called before the ABCC for "illegally" entering a site to resolve an OHS dispute. The trial is expected to last for three days and the CFMEU has promised a campaign of industrial action in the spirit of the General Strike that greeted the jailing of Clary O'Shea in 1969.
