Our monthly acoustic music night is also on from 7.30pm, this Thursday 28th May at Jura. 'Rascal & Bones' and 'A Dire Dawn' will be playing. Bring a piece of wood with strings, a tube with holes, your humble vocal chards or just your ears to listen!

And it would be great if you could come to the G20 Solidarity Trivia Night. Three activists (two of them Sydney-based) are going to trial on charges from the G20 protests in Melbourne in 2006. These include aggravated burglary - a serious charge which can carry a ten-year sentence. The action in question took place at a defence force recruitment centre and the Tenix offices (a military contractor); it lasted 10 minutes and involved nothing more than red glitter and water pistols! One person is already in jail as a result of charges relating to actions at G20. The Trivia Night starts at 7pm, Tues 2nd June at The Workshop, 16 Sloane St, Newtown.

Love and rage from the Jura Collective.
