Welcome Visitor:

Assembly for Solidarity with Ark Tribe - new time

Date and Time: 
Wednesday, June 9, 2010 -
4:00am to 6:00am

Construction worker from South Australia facing six months in jail. He has been charged with not attending an interview with the Australian Building and Construction Commission (ABCC). Ark was working on the Flinders University site in Adelaide. Conditions were so bad that workers drew up a petition calling for safety improvements, on a handtowel. One by one workers from the site were called before the ABCC.

The penalties for those who don’t cooperate with ABCC investigations are frightening - fines of up to $22,000 for things like stopping work to make sure workers are safe and jail for up to 6 months if you don’t answer their questions.

His next court dates are 15, 16, and 18 June. Nationwide demonstrations planned.

Initiative of anarchists and antiauthoritarians for information, discussion, and coordination of actions in solidarity.

NEW TIME - 6pm TUES 8th June
