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.
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

======== 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

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
