same here in Adelaide, we had reached the destination and were there for 1.5 
hours and still they came from the assembly point.  I dont have any idea how 
many people were there but they were young and old, black and white and yellow, 
just people like me who dont want this waste for the sake of revenge, 
retribution, oil or satisfaction on the part of people who really should know 

It was my first ever demonstration and I've been on this earth a very long time, 
it was just amazing.

Let's not let it rest here however .... write to the members of parliament and 
make your views known.

ps the news has just come on, 50k in brisbane, 250k in sydney, adelaide they 
didnt say ... but maybe 40k?
