“Community Organizers”-preparing Australia to become a Peoples Republic
Andrew BoltÂ Monday, July 13, 2009Â
Reader Brendan notes a change in the color of the book now being waved by precisely the same kind of people:
About 1500 Australians aged 16 to 26 are descending on the University of Western Sydney to learn about organising and to hear speeches from Tim Flannery, senators Nick Xenophon and Christine Milne, the NSW Premier, Nathan Rees, and via video link from Rajendra Pachauri, chairman of the United Nations panel on climate change, and the former US vice-president Al Gore, who is training an older generation of climate change campaigners in Melbourne this weekend.Â
Over three days Power Shift attendees will learn “Camp Obama” style strategies fromÂ a manifesto called The Little Green Book, such as recruiting first-time voters and targeting awareness campaigns at marginal seats in the federal election next year.
