Brisbane turns on protest power again as the awakening rolls on
SOUTH-East Queensland people turned out in their droves again on Saturday to show the people of Brisbane that there’s movement out there that cares for our future.
As some 10,000 protesters marched through the streets Saturday shoppers, most wearing masks in stark contast to the marchers, stood in amazement that such a thing was actually taking place. Cairns News was there to capture the moment.
Tristian Triccy and his team from The People’s Revolution again did a brilliant job of running the event and keeping Queensland Police at bay. An incident with cops involving a couple of arrests was eventually cooled down and the boys in black kept their distance for the rest of the day.
As with Melbourne, the union movement showed up with CFMEU man launching into the mainstream ACTU, whose leadership show up at the World Economic Forum – the ultimate act of the scab, he said.
