Taking it to the streets

The aim is spectacular — to close stock exchanges around the country, suspending ‘corporate tyranny‘, for a moment. The how of it is, quite simply, through anarchy. That’s not to say it isn’t organised, though. Melbourne legal activist Damien Lawson, who placed volunteer legal observers on Melbourne streets for the S11 protest, is doing this job again for the Melbourne stock exchange blockade. He says 50 law students, and solicitors from community legal centres and private practice will observe police behaviour at today’s protest. These legal observers, backed by the video tapes of alternative media group indymedia, are responsible for the Victorian Ombudsman holding an inquiry into police brutality in Melbourne
