4.9 Mb 10 Minutes. Lara Pullin is an Australian woman who recently returned from Venezuela, where it seems an unreported revolution is under way. In this podcast preview she describes a community where the police are banned and citizens maintain their own law and order free from intervention. Community issues are resolved within and by the community itself. Lara was attending a function at the Venezuelan Embassy in Canberra where I also met the new representative of the Venezuelan Government . This interview arose out of a discussion comparing conditions in our respective countries. I told him a little about Nimbin, and how Police Surveillance Cameras were installed at huge expense while our community based security organisation, the 'Jungle Patrol' has had its funding withdrawn. The Venezuelan representative was intrigued with the history of Nimbin and sends revolutionary greetings to Community Radio Station 2NimFM.
