Wikileaks US Consulate Sit-In (Redux)
Enemies of the state, apparently.
My video tweets. FB photo album.
Lutz’s video (feat. special guest star Noam Chomsky):
Kenji’s video (the attention of concerned friends and/or state-violence-porn afficianados is particularly directed to about the nine minute mark):
I Wrote A Poem Of Sorts
I was wondering
If I could get some kind of receipt
For all of the time and energy I have invested
In seeking to address and resolve
The bizarre interrelational dysfunctions of my family
And send it in to the universe for a refund.
Imagine what I could do
With all of that time and energy.
I could no doubt singlehandedly overthrow the 1%
And still have enough left over
To build a sizeable self-sustaining base on the moon
With my bare hands.
Oh, the things I could do.
And yet we must pursue the projects
Which are important and meaningful to us
Must we not.

Bradley Manning Actions At The US Consulate
Thursday 5th & Friday 6th September.
There’s nothing like being literally dragged out of a building by cops in the name of justice to take your mind off things.
Brief videos I shot of Thursday’s occupation out the front:
And of Sam and Sara getting dragged out on Friday (when nine of us actually got inside, thanks to the genius strategy of not discussing plans in advance on F#$book):
Bedlam’s take on the whole thing:
UPDATE – And Kenji’s:
For the first time in its seven-year history, Teh Fields has fallen seriously dormant.
At time of writing, I haven’t posted here in nearly six months.
This certainly hasn’t occurred due to an absence of stuff to blog about. Indeed the exact opposite.
I feel very torn about whether TF still has legs these days. But it’s been so important to me in the past – and for such a long time – that it’s extremely hard to just give up and declare it dead. And pretty much impossible to abandon it to a slow lingering death of neglect, rather than putting some kind of at least semi-decisive fullstop on it.
Anyway. How am I? Okay. Feeling slightly weary and wartorn between one thing and another, and very ready for winter to be over. But it nearly is. \o/!
I plan to spend the time between now and my birthday on September 14th hibernating regeneratively and getting my house in order – which includes undertaking the epic, long-procrastinated and hopefully cathartic task of updating TF retrospectively with documentation of some of my zany 2012 adventures.
Depending on the extent to which this latter task seems rewarding and worthwhile or more like taking a reluctant zombie for a walk, we’ll see what happens.

The fences surrounding the roadworks on Swanston St that had been keeping us awake all winter finally came down at 5am:

Overnight Occupy Tuesday #8
The weather was crap this week – but Colin brought his marquee, so that was okay. And despite the red-rag presence of said marquee, there was no raid for some reason. (Although this was made up for in triplicate the following week.)
