Meeting and greeting the Arms dealers

08-09-2009 06:50

Monday morning, and with ITT sponsoring a pre-DSEi conference at the QE2 Conference Centre in Victoria, a meet and greet event was organised for 8 in the morning. Arriving about 20 minutes early, the first sight to greet the eyes is 3 police vans and a sea of yellow jackets clustered around the entrance door. As I get closer, I see that someone must have got there much earlier, as the central glass panel is redecorated with an antiwar slogan. Railings are being erected around the site, and as I draw closer I am approached by a copper who calls me by a name that is definitely not mine. He informs me that someone has applied for permission to demonstrate, and that they have provided a designated protest area to facilitate our right to protest. I point out that I am nothing to do with the application, and that I would not be joining anyone who had applied for state permission to exercise the right to protest. He then proceeds to threaten me with a SOCPA arrest if I don't enter the pen.
