Melbourne Australia Kicks Off F15 Peace Protests With Massive Crowd

Aussies Rock! Posted on the NYC Indy Media site.
We got some 200,000-250,000 protestors in Melbourne, Australia, at 5pm on a Friday night; a great start to the F15 events. The city itself stood still, people as far as the eye could see and, not only that, but people kept on coming in and in and in, by bike, by train, by bus, by foot.

People are shocked by the size of the rally. It amounts to almost 10% of the total population of the city.

It's up to you guys in NY to shake things up; be ready, if this is any guide, you will get a bigger turnout than expected.
