Global Street Party, 16 May 1998 - report

Darwin

Sorry for the screw-up but as only about ten of us turned up, we decided, after a walk around town, with placard and a drummer, to bugger off to the beach for the rest of the afternoon.

Despite 2,000 leaflets and 50 posters being distributed we were lunched out by a couple of musical bods who promised they'd turn up but they didn't, in addition being a traveller from london the only real 'agitator/organiser' had only a certain budget ($60 oz) from my own pocket after being denied money from the local environment centre.

Also there was a major concert happening that presumably took most of our party-goers from us.

But, general consensus was that it would be a good idea if locals organised another party.
