Final day of Mardi-Grass, the Hemp Olympics, the combi-procession and the Big Parade have all happened. Now it's time for speeches, and star of the moment was Lisa Yeates, long term activist for the environment and drug law reform with a record tracking back to the 1970s. Lisa tells it like it is through word and song.

Shadow minister Tony Burke [ALP] came to the Nimbin Hotel to 'campaign', and support Justine Elliot, local member of Tweed Shire. BTW, she hardly spoke herself. Since I didn't get an exclusive interview for community radio - I just recorded his 'pitch'. Maybe he just doesn't care anyway - you'll be the judge.

For 13 years, police have tolerated Nimin's Annual Mardi-grass Pot Festival, where revelers behave as if the herb is not prohibited.
Enough! thundered the area's new top cop, threatening that this year's gathering would be policed by a force oc 200 to enforce even minor breaches of the drug laws.
Was he kidding? How would the hippies react? Could there be a riot at the 2006 Nimbin Mardi-Grass.

25 Minutes 17Mb.
A review of the police presence in Nimbin before, and during (certainly not after) the Nimbin Mardi-Grass. Regional commander 'Bluey' Lyons gets a gong, and tells the locals what he did to made them happy. According to his interview with regional ABC radio, the locals were begging him for more police, but not everyone agrees. Hear the actuality, police disinformation, and what really happened, and then sit back and enjoy the original Daddy Cool play cops'n hippies with the Bumble Boogie.
