At 2pm Australian time on Monday September 11 it appears the blockade of the World Economic Forum at Crown Casino in Melbourne has been a success. About half of the 800 delegates to the conference have been prevented from entering the building and inside the feeling is a little tense. Apparently some delegates have refused to leave their hotel rooms to attempt running the blockade. Protesters are claiming victory in their efforts to "close down the WEF" For more information and coverage of resistance and the protests see Melbourne Indymedia and the S11 website.
In London around 30 people gathered on The Strand in a solidarity action with those protesting against the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Australia.
