Refugee Camp in the City, Glebe Park until 6pm

By Overheard 23 September 2008 66

Medecins Sans Frontieres/Doctors Without Borders
Refugee Camp in your city = Canberra (specifically, Glebe Park)

Until 6pm Wednesday 24 September 2008.

Open for tours every 15 minutes, 9am to midday, then 2pm to 5pm.
Or wander through between midday and 2pm and read the placards and talk to MSF staff.
Information on MSF and refugees in general to take away BUT please note this is a “charity-mugger”-free zone.
They can’t accept cash donations due to security reasons.

WARNING: after visiting the camp, you may never post again on the RiotACT. All your piddling little concerns…. let me rephrase that. All my piddling little concerns now seem to pale into insignificance by comparison.

A harrowing and intensely emotional experience.

Suspend disbelief and go have a look. (Highly recommended for the ‘blow them out of the waters/push them back into the ocean’ brigade.)

I was just telling DJ Gosper of the Karismakatz that my first ever cheque for my business ($50 in 2003) I had to return to the client because they’d made it out to ‘Overhead Productions’ and my bank wouldn’t accept it.

No, the ‘h’ doesn’t stand for handler. You gots until 6am Saturday and then I pretty much turn into a pumpkin for best part of ten days. (Except to return for Monday night’s ‘Trivia in the Tra dies’ from 7pm in Dickson. Buy me a beer there and I’ll reveal the mystery word.

peterh, you’ll have to buy me three for giving me the ‘overhead’ treatment!

Australia has absolutely no obligation to be bringing these people into the country

Maybe it’s just a nice thing to do.

Yeah mannnnnn….. Progressive thinkers, not blinkers and all that…..

For your information, I have a PhD.

Oh, this is just classic comedy. You can’t make stuff like that up.

Ralph, you fh: so %$#^ing what!

I’ve got a communications degree. I know some theory, and I’ve seen a lot of it in practice. I’m no expert, and I certainly don’t presume to know more than anyone else on the subject or hold myself as some model communicator.

You’ve got some sort of degree and you’ve written a thesis on (I’m guessing) some narrowly-defined topic.

Bravo! Kudos = 10. Relevance = 2.5. Oh, hang on; you said Economics. Make that 1.5.

does the h stand for handler?

In something highly mathematical, as opposed to something completely abstract.
