Excerpts from the public demonstration in Melbourne yesterday...

For those not in the know...students across Australia are campaignin against the Voluntary Student Union (VSU) that's drawn up by Prime Minister John Howard...he's obviously had too much marijuana...as he insists that students will no longer pay a compulsory Student Union fee...thus rippin the heart and soul of a university - the unions...without em...us students no longer have access to sports and social facilities...single mothers would not be able to deposit their little babies at Union-funded child care centers before headin to classes...we have no avenues to turn to when legal services are needed...or when we just had a fuckin bad week and student counsellors are nowhere to be found...you get the picture...

RMIT students met up in the campus...where we were treated to a barrage of enthusiastic 'Fuck Howard' speeches...

I must say...it was such a wonderful feelin to be surrounded by people who believe in a cause and are vocal bout it...im VERY tempted to turn this harmless post into an anti-Singapore middle finger...but that's another story...

The RMIT students marched down to the Victoria State Library which was conveniently just next door...

There must have been around 500 RMIT student protestors...we were met up with a further 1000 student protestors from Melbourne University...and about 2000 from the various universities in Melbourne city...includin Deakin...Swinburne...La Trobe and Monash...i heard several hundred protestors from Deakin University broke through a police barricade just to meet up with all of us...OMG...such fanaticism...you go Deakinians!

The entire contingent in Melbourne represents protestors in the state of Victoria...in other states...particularly New South Wales...5000 students in Sydney are doin the same thing...chantin anti-VSU slurs and cursin at John Howard...

The contingent stretched across 3 city blocks...causin an enormous jam in the city...traffic came to a standstill and amused tourists and Melburnians stopped to take pictures...some anti-Howard blokes joined the rapidly swellin numbers...we marched down Swanston Street...

To Spring Street...where the Treasury Building stood...here...a handful of Liberals (read: John Howard cock suckers...YEAH THAT'S RIGHT YOU COCK SUCKERS!!) staged a counter rally...resultin in a heated exchange...'Fuck you' and various parts of a human anatomy were flyin around...

Good thing cops were around...i was perched on the stairs of the Treasury Buildin...attemptin to take a better shot...when a cop shouted firmly at me to 'Get off the stairs!'...i didnt want trouble...so i meekly obliged...

These cock suckers must have it bad at home...whatever would compel them to be pro-Howard...do they want to see more Australian troops being sent to Iraq? Higher taxes? Adjustments of the Australian Medicare Fund? More fuckin lies? God...are they all fuckin gay!*
