Rally Against Racism! Sunday 18th @ Sydney Town Hall Square

With all the emails circulating this week, this is one which Sydney-siders should read. "Rally Against Racism! Sunday 18th. It's time for ALL Australians to Unite Against Racism! The Unite Against Racism Rally WHEN: Sunday 18th December 2005 ::: TIME: 1pm ::: WHERE: Town Hall Square ::: After a marathon meeting at UTS last night, NUS (National Union of Students) and other associated community and cultural groups think it's time that the countless thousands of Sydney-siders who DID NOT like what they saw last weekend in Cronulla took to the streets to make their voice heard. We need to send the strongest possible message to the rest of Australia and to the rest of the world that those 5000 people who rioted at Cronulla do not speak for us. As such we need to quadruple their number, rain hail or shine! Spam this out to everyone you know! Lets get down there and show the world that we ain't (sic) a nation of redneck dic*heads."

Unsilent Night Comes To Sydney: Bring Your Boomboxes To Town Hall, Sat 17th Dec, 8pm

Unsilent Night is, to quote its founder Phil Kline, an "outdoor ambient music piece for an INFINITE number of boom box tape players. It's like a Christmas carolling party except that we don't sing, but rather carry boom boxes, each playing a separate tape which is part of the piece. In effect, we become a city block long stereo system!"
