moved to a daily schedule. As a Green Left reader, you can be informed
no
matter you are, whether you're in Melbourne and participating in the
demos, or in some other part of the country, or anywhere in the world".

===GLOBAL ACTION HEADLINES, SEPTEMBER 01===

Student union stifles students' voice
By Susan Price (September 1)
MELBOURNE  - Student's optimism turned rapidly to disgust at Melbourne
University here, when the ALP-led student council succeeded in scuttling
a
student general meeting (SGM), called to consider motions to overturn an
earlier student union decision to outlaw support for the September 11
protests against the World Economic Forum.

Melbourne protest for refugee rights
By Susan Price (September 1)
MELBOURNE - Over 200 people rallied outside the Maribyrnong Detention
Centre here on August 26, as part of the national day of action for
refugee rights.

Not a conspiracy...worse!
BY SEAN HEALY (September 1)
The World Economic Forum is not a conspiracy. Its meeting rooms may well
be smoke-filled (tobacco companies Philip Morris and BAT are members,
after all), but it is not a cabal hunkered over pieces on a giant map,
plotting world domination. It's worse!
