The Sydney rally attracted a good-sized crowd of about 500 on May 28. We opened with a Jello Biafra spoken piece. Speakers included:

Sydney march After the speeches, the crowd marched through the CBD to the offices of the Australian Broadcasting Authority, the agency that will be responsible for censorship orders under the government's Online Services Bill. We handed out fliers as we went - and passers-by were generally very supportive. Outside the ABA offices Danny Yee got up on the bus that was our sound system and spoke again, along with Rob Thomas who spoke of his situation as an ISP.
