Bastille Day, Melbourne July 2010

As a historical symbol of revolt against injustice, Bastille Day is being commemorated world-wide.

On July 14th, Bastille Day, a group of activists gathered in front of BHP Billiton’s Melbourne office to alert their fellow citizens as to the corporate world’s neo-conservative mantra:Servitude, Inequality, Hostility.

Called the Lemmings for Bloated Resource Rich Billionaires we promise to  give our pennies freely so that they can continue to live the good life. Ha! Ha!

Lemmings were there to make it perfectly plain that real power is not found in the parliaments but in the boardrooms of transnational corporations. Over the last few weeks we have witnessed this like never before. Failure of former Prime Minister Kevin Rudd to give in to the miners led to his premature political demise.
