On this day Friday the 15th of August,

Monash Tent City has successfully completed its 23rd day of occupation! Despite the bad spate of weather this week, morale is high and much movement and energy abounds. Some events gone by include:

1. Another Rave for Revolution was held in dismal weather, attracting nearly 45 people.

2. The Lounge/Chill-out/Activist area up on Admin's main foyer balcony now has a kitchen with gas heaters and store room, another lounge piece, a stereo, more carpet, and generally more creature comforts.

3. Thursday night had us hosting 35 Mckinnon High kids. We jammed together, hung-out and chatted. Many were keen to organise a highschool walk-out to coincide with the NUS National Day of Action this coming Wed 20th @ 2:00 Museum.

4. Bad Boys Batacuda came and jammed with us Thurs, after a free concert in front of the Law Faculty! They are keen to organise a benefit for us, and have donated a box of CD's for fund raising.

5. Ch 31, SKA TV produced a show on us for Access News (to air Monday week).

6. RMIT Open Day was successfully disrupted last Sunday by a collaborative effort of cross-campus student activists which included a not insignificant number of Tent City Space Cadets
