Its hard to believe its been 3 years. Somehow it seems longer, somehow it feels shorter.
What has changed in that time, the federal government changed from Labour to Liberal and nothing changed for the better, because while a government allows a reserve bank to exist the reserve bank is in control, not the government.
We learned about the illogical and poisonous aspects of the political left.
We learned about how the political right are complete sold out to large corporations.
We learned about how the laws that give fiat currency value are just as corrupt and hollow as the fake money it supports.
We learned its an information war, a battle for the hearts and minds of the people.
We changed the conversation, we got people talking about things they never talked about before, or were even afraid to talk about.
We put up with a lot of hardships, the harassment from Victoria Police, Melbourne City Council, and agent provocateurs, it was tiring, cold , wet and messy and at times dangerous.
BUT, it was totally worth it.
We went through as lot to spread a message but it’s up to you to hear the message and act upon it accordingly.
Justice Flick, one of three appeal judges, said he had reviewed footage of the removal of the tent dress and was shocked by what he saw.
“Those who made the directions for this conduct to be pursued should be shot. It’s grossly offensive,” he said.

Remember a knife was cutting the tent apart just inches from the back of Kerrsions neck during the incident. This knife (called a tool by Victoria Police) was provided to MCC workers by Victoria Police during the incident. One of the council workers refused to take part in the incident and walked away, though the remaining MCC workers and police mindlessly abused the young woman by tearing away her clothes and leaving her in her underwear on the grass.
This incident occurred the day after Victoria police were humiliated by the original tent monster action which saw Kerrison and two other” tent monsters” run around the park and utterly demoralize Victoria police who felt like the fools that they were.
Clearly Victoria police don’t know the meaning of the phrase :”It’s all in good fun”
Your aren’t allowed to know about what you aren’t allowed to know about.
In a truly big brother move the Australian government is trying to keep the suppression of information order itself secret.
What is next is secret prisons and secret prisoners.
From wikileaks.org press release:
In bizarre turn of events North Korea’s 31 year old dictator threatens to nuke occupymelbourne.net . In his statement he explained given his recent remarks about Julie Bishop and Seth Rogen, he felt he needed to do some good to reduce the blowback for the west, “Yes I’m getting on the band wagon” he said, “What are you going to do about it?” He also stated the occupymelbourne.net’s recent decision to acquire a AC 130U gunship make him concerned that occupymelbourne.net might become a regional power and needed to be neutralized before they became too powerful to buckle under to hollow threats.
Hi JS, we have decided to not approve your comment as it is misleading and contained numerous errors.
Firstly we are not a socialist group, if you wish to review our thoughts on socialism please click the following link.
You can use the search feature on the left to find our previous articles by keyword search. This media outlet has been the official media site of Occupy Melbourne since March 9 2013. The ‘.org’, twitter and facebook groups were hijacked and refused to respond to the wishes of the occupiers. We decided to remain anonymous to keep our ego’s out of the way of the message.
If as a lawyer working for the government, you are going to post general disparaging comments against activist groups from your Facebook account from work when you are ‘working’ for the government, I really need to ask: Are you skiving off from doing your job or is this your actual job?
I mean seriously are you a paid troll? Because it really looks like it.
Or this this just massive cognitive dissonance?
If you know how to look through the media mayhem we produce you’ll realize we do some serious investigative journalism, that’s why when we talked about Mega Mosques in Melbourne the mainstream media listened.
Don’t ask how we know, but we have proof.
We suggest you reread you copy of 1984.
Should we expose the name of the suspected paid troll? We’ll do a poll from the comments to this article.
And in completely unrelated fashion we add the logo and website for a nationwide register for sex offenders.
This should help explain why we feel so angry about Tony Abbott.
Before election day (the big date) he was saying “It’s OK if we just hold hands and cuddle”.
On budget day (the next morning) we were feeling violated.
Q: Is Tony Abbott earning $4 per minute?
A: Yes. Tony Abbott is earning more than $4 per minute.
Q: How did you work that out?
A: I’m pretty smart with maths and stuff.
Q: How did you get so smart?
A: Luck of the draw and avoiding Facebook and TV.
FON is a 9 year old technology from Spain which allows you to share your fixed line internet through its wireless antenna to anyone nearby. It was initially set up as a sharing and profit sharing system whereby you got a 50% commission for the data you gave to the user if you chose to. You could also do this for gratis in exchange for similar free WiFi of other users. Now the profit share plans no longer exist.
Telstra could have pushed this technology 5 years ago, but it would have meant they would have been allowing customers to opt out of paying for expensive 3G internet and would have had to pay customers for the data they routed for Telstra. Pay customers to compete with our 3G? No way!
Why is Telstra pushing the technology now?
3G speeds are considered mediocre and largely ubiquitous (in metro areas) with many places giving this away for free. At the same time there has been an explosion is the use of mobile internet meaning paid networks began to struggle under the weight of traffic. Building wireless capacity is expensive and Telstra needs to develop wireless capacity and drive down the price of wireless internet before the NBN arrives with its massive capacity fiber optic internet.
So in other words Telstra is scared of the NBN and is too cheap to build enough wireless towers and would rather use its customers home connections for free. NBN will likely destroy Telstra and Optus in the internet and VOIP markets leaving Telstra (and Optus) only a copper line / 3G carrier for the the extremely remote areas, which have never been profitable.
One of the reasons Telstra wants to make the wireless ‘free’ is simply to ruin the wireless market for the NBN by using FON. The NBN will find it harder to get customers in the wireless market as the price will be so low. Rather cynical considering Telstra didn’t want this technology to compete with their 3G but when someone else wants a piece of the market (3G/4G/4G+), they are literally smashing all of the toys so no one can play.
Ironically this is all happening in the country that did so much to make wireless internet a reality and we are among the last to benefit from it. Hats off to the clever people at CSIRO who made WiFi possible. No thanks to the corporates who sand bag every new technology developed.
Telstra: another reason why we cannot have nice things
If you are interested in truly shared networks do some research on mesh networks.
