Boardwalk democracy demands a free Taiwan

It was a beautiful evening on the Cairns Esplanade today. The highlight was actually a free Taiwan democracy protest of some sort. Take that Chinese tourists!



There were no media cameras noted however I have seen far more poorly attended protest events appear in local evening news broadcasts. Exceptional organisation and co-ordination skills included a march along the boardwalk and more exotic chants to replace the usual "what do we want" etc! Well done although the detail was lost without language translation!!

I must say it was much better entertainment than the fire-twirling busking for which that particular location is renowned!

  1. Deport the lot of them. This is Australia not Taiwan! Bring back white Australia Mr Abbott!

  2. Well, I decided to let that comment pass as an example of what now passes as an excuse for free speech in Tony Abbott's Australia. Twitterers can find further examples of the genre at @boltcomments: https://twitter.com/boltcomments
