Coming Out as a G20 Arrestee

Sina Brown-Davis, one of the G20 arrestees, will be holding a forum at the Melbourne Social Forum on indigenous resistance to globalisation in the Pacific. The issues presented in this forum are intricately related to resistance to the G20 last year, and to APEC in the coming months.


I was arrested and charged last year with offenses related to the G20 protests in Melbourne. I've found the best way(for me) to deal with whats going on is to be focused on my politic and the indignation I feel at exploitation and injustice in our own communities, Australia, our region and the world. Its not as if the wheels of Globalisation have stopped rolling or anything.



Jointly organised by the Ongoing G20 Solidarity Network and Civil Rights Defense.

Thursday 26 April


Fitzroy Town Hall Reading Room, cnr Napier and Moor St, entry off Napier St

Speakers include: Marcus Bankse from Austudy 5, Civil Rights Defense, Orgasn, and others.
