Welcome Visitor:

Blockade the Block

Date and Time: 
Sunday, July 6, 2014 - 7:00am to Monday, July 7, 2014 - 11:00pm

Indigenous activists have called for support this Sunday and Monday to defend the Aboriginal Tent Embassy and The Block in Redfern.The Embassy is expecting an eviction attempt any time on July the 6th and 7th. It's a racist attack and a class war. It's part of the big push to remove poor and working class people from the inner city to make room for those with more money. Come down and show solidarity.

"On July 7th, the development of new housing is set to occur at the Block in Redfern. The bulldozers will attempt to roll in to erase centuries of Aboriginal occupation, and four decades of Aboriginal social housing. An Aboriginal Tent Embassy stands in their way, and mob are calling for our support. You can visit or stay at the Embassy at anytime, but a specific invitation has been made for your support on Sunday 6th and Monday 7th of July. Let’s resist the enclosure of the Block as another shopping mall, as another block of flats that people on low-incomes can’t afford to live in."

Please also note that we don't know what time the construction workers and cops will get there so it might be best to show up early. We can have a yarn and a cuppa until we have to blockade
