Rally against Nelson – 27 August

Opponents of the Nelson “reforms” to higher education marked the national day of action with a colourful rally and march, starting at the State Library and making their way to Melbourne University via the Bourke Street Mall, the Melbourne Business School and McLennan Library in Carlton. A contemporary account of the whole march, including the action at the University, posted to Melbourne Indymedia, and which included seveal photos, is no longer available, but some discussion around this time can be found here and here
