Pre-2008 Archive

This is the start of what will probably be a rather lengthy process of re-posting content from the now-defunct predecessor site to this blog. The original Melbourne Protests website began in May 2001 and was suspended after the Mayday rally in 2008; this blog began with a rally in support of the people of Burma on 28 September 2007, so there is a degree of overlap.
Note – for some of the earliest posts the original text is lost; in such cases a contemporary report has been quoted or linked to with acknowledgement from Green Left Weekly. Melbourne Protests has, however, no connection with Green Left Weekly or its publishers.
