It has come to our attention that two major partners of the 18TH BIENNALE OF SYDNEY, 2012 is logistics company Transfield (since 1973) and the Australian Government. As you may already know, the Australian government has awarded Transfield a $24.5 million contract to provide cleaning, catering and security for an inhumane refugee detention facility on the island of Nauru. This south pacific island is once again the Australian government's offshore detention centre for refugees who attempt to enter Australia by boat. Over 2000 refugees have arrived since the Labor government announced it would re-introduce detention on Nauru in mid-August, 2012. So who knows how many refugees are destined to be imprisoned on this island, and for how long? The previous Howard government's racist policies had already shown us the terrible physical and psychological effects this unnecessary detainment had upon fellow humans. We must try stop it immediately.
The People's Food Plan - have your say!
JOIN THIS EVENT HERE
For the Global Occupy Monsanto Day on 17th September,
Occupy Sydney will be
challenging corporate power in our food supply by doing a
workshop on The People's Food
Plan with the Australian Food Sovereignty Alliance.
Come down to Occupy Sydney / Martin Place and join us for a
workshop about the
People's Food Plan.
We'll be talking about the kinds of transformative change our
food system needs and
making plans for how to make those changes happen.
You'll have the opportunity to talk about your experiences with
the food and agriculture
system and why you think we need to change. The focus at this
workshop will be on GM
crops, sustainable agriculture and concentrated economic
power in the food system, in
honour of Occupy Monsanto Day, but if folks are interested,
there will also be scope to
discuss other issues related to the agrifood system, such as
land-use conflicts, healthy
eating and urban agriculture.
See here for more about why we need a People's Food Plan:
Globally, Monsanto and their chain supply
partners should take note. You should
have known it is wrong to try to
monopolise food supply for profit. You
should expect us... Occupy & Anonymous
