Calling all Zinesters, record labels, visual artists, badge makers,
others with wares to sell (especially the weird and the wonderful)  to
be part of the Dirty Shirlow’s market day. It’s happening next Sunday
as part of the amazing Decolonise Festival (keep your eyes out, full

help with tables if there’s some around.

* Screening of ‘Babakueria (BBQ Area)’: “A mock-documentary, reversing the white/black roles in the European takeover of Australia; as the Aboriginal colonisers arrive and “conquer”, then marginalise, the indigenous white inhabitants. It is hysterical, frightening and thought-provoking.”
