Call out for work crew

Call out for work crew! ‘Pog mo hon’ the flagship for the flotilla is coming out of the water in Cairns from the 2nd of August for around 10 days for a service b4 the big journey. We need crew to scrape barnacles, paint decks and numerous other small maintenance jobs. We are also looking for artist to give her a mission appropriate paint job so feel free to send through your ideas. This will also be a good opportunity to meet the captain and other crew and help us determine who is coming on what and when and where. As you can see we still have a lot more people the boats so this is a good opportunity to see who works best in a team. We have other opportunities on the brew for those who are up for rowing out on kayaks with banners and flags for the launch. We also need crew up in Cairns to help with event promotion, media and potential solidarity actions depending on what arises on the water. We are heading out to the desert today to begin the land part of the convoy so we will be in and out of range, but please get in touch.  Big thanks to all of you for your enthusiasm to be part of this project, all your efforts are and will be greatly appreciated, and with our efforts combined hopefully the world will wake up to the injustices being committed. Hopefully see you out there xx Izzy

  1. I haven’t seen any posters for this gig around town and am wondering how I can help out with promo for the event? Is it cool if I print off some fliers and posters and hang them around Cairns? I would love to help out on the night but will probably come late as there is a UMI free music concert that night at Foggarty Park (pity about the clash). Any other events being organised for Cairns? There is a ‘Movies that matter’ film/documentary screening that happens at City Place every sunday if you guys haven’t thought about trying to screen something that wknd.
