The Blue Knob Community, just outside Nimbin makes radical protest fun, with this wicked fundraiser for the aboriginal elder whose sacred sites are being trashed by one of the most venal mining companies in the world. And a busload of Nimbin activists are hitting the road to Lake Cowal for an Easter Corroboree and radical action. Get the real low down on the criminal vandalising of Lake Cowal - a few ounces of gold in exchange for 1000s of tons of Cyanide, and a handful of jobs that will disappear as soon as the mining company moves on to track the next vein. Get the views of local activists and enjoy splendid musical talent, which forms the sonic backdrop to powerful statements of outrage:
Alkhimiya, whose musical alchemy sublimates the dross of gross Corporate Greed into the Gold of the Human Heart.
The Blissmakers, who bring a driving reggae beat to ethereal lyrics.
Andrea, local folk performer and lyricist, whose soaring voice lifts us out of the mundane world with a glimpse of what could be.
