There is a big political debate happening in Australia currently and it is about the government taking control of more of the Aboriginal land by the closure of their communities – specifically in Western Australia. It’s pretty intense and Melbourne has been home to a few really large rallies on this. The aim of the protesters is to shut down traffic in Melbourne so they are heard. And of course this is in the heart of the CBD at Flinders Station, a mere block from the theatre.
I stepped out around rush hour to see what was happening and things were really heating up.
