Thanks to Networkers have just caught up with the campaign to save the only Aboriginal school in Melbourne, the Ballerrt Mooroop College.
Report from The Frontline
Ballurt Murrup Aboriginal College in Hilton Street Glenroy.
The govt sent bulldozers in and fenced off site for demolition but the community rallied.
There is a sit-in at the school to stop the bulldozers.
This is the only Aboriginal school in Melbourne.
Koori education is being bulldozed in the Premier Brumby’s own electorate!
Protest was held today 24 Nov at 10am outside John Brumby's office, 145A Wheatsheaf Rd, Glenroy.
Gathering was great, lively speakers some live music....
made waves in Glenroy which does not see many community protests.
The community then returned to the school gymnasium which is is a sit-in occupied 24 hours by them to prevent demolition.
- Back again on Friday, meet up at the occupied gymnasium hall at Hilton St school site from 10am.
- Saturday will also be some action proposed so far to leaflet local residents and at local polling booths as Saturday is State election
