    todays protest tip - emailed in by you:

    S11 FASHION:
    wear labels 'Property of the Commonwealth of Australia', meaning as property they deserve the protection of the troops as much as an inanimate object. Just a few ideas. Be peaceful and good luck.
    - dmandie@primus.com.au

    S11 MULTI-TARGETS:
    I suggest that, as well as holding a non-violent protest at the Crown Casino, s11 should hold non-violent protests outside the Melbourne offices of some of the Big Business firms associated with the World Economic Forum.

    Below I give the names of all those firms, plus their Melbourne addresses where available.

    ======== Here is how to visit the WEF web page:- If you go to the WEF website at http://www.weforum.org and click on 'Regional Networks", and then "Asia Pacific Economic Summit 2000 Melbourne Australia" and then click on "Partners", you will get a list of people who helped to bring the WEF to Melbourne. These would make very good targets for protests. Here is the address of that page in full: http://www.weforum.org/Regional_netw.nsf/Documents/Home+-+Regional+Networks+-+Asia+Pacific+-+Asia+Pacific+Economic+Summit+-+Partners
