In this episode we give a recap of the March in March against the Abbott government in Townsville and Perth. We play Stevie from Team Earthling’s field report on her experiences at the Townsville event. We went to the Perth event and we bring you some of the speeches from it, including Sam Cavallaro (President of Curtin University Student Guild, member of NUS), Andrew Haywood (activist on disability pensions), Steve McCartney (WA State Secretary AMWU, President of the Trades and Labour Council – Unions WA) and Tony Abbott impersonator Balony Abott. We discuss the way that satire can sometimes reinforce the inequalities it is trying to oppose and how police forced people to remove “offensive” t-shirts that read ‘Fuck Tony Abbott’. You can see our photos of the Perth event here. We also mention that we are now on the App Omny, critique “anarcho”-capitalism, and thank Melbourne Street Medic Collective for promoting our podcast at Camp Anarchy.
