Maybe not a complete fizzer after all, a loud and noisy convoy is moving through Civic now.

For those missing it here’s a taste of the noise:

Here’s today’s slideshow:

I think most recent rallies and protests have attracted more actual PEOPLE. But they shut the town down because this lot have some trucks.

People with causes take note: if you can rent a few semis, and alert the media that you’re going to blockade Canberra, your protest will be much more effective.

I don’t know how many of us there was at the live export rally, but I bet it was a damn sight more than these clowns could muster. Difference was, we were lawful.

At least Lot Lizards would have made some good money this week.

Worst gathering ever. Here I was ready to bow down to our truck driving overlords but alas major, major flop, was expecting so much more – pretty much like our pollies really.

The motorcycling fraternity gets better results from their blanket, pink ribbon and christmas toy runs.

Sorry, as “Me no fry” pointed out, I was caught up in the “pedantry” of the moment!

Reminds me of an episode of The Simpsons

All right, I’ll be Cue Ball. Barney can be Eight Ball, Lenny will be Twelve Ball, and Moe, you’ll be Cue Ball

Kind of fits in nicely with these guys

So making up in horns for what they lacked in motors??

Like to point out for the couple in the camper van with the rather distasteful “get out big snout” on it: glass houses folks. Look in a mirror.

I would have sent in a picture of the vast emptiness of EPIC, but empty doesn’t make much of a photo…

I thought they said they weren’t going to break any road rules. Isn’t it an offence to unnecessarily sound your horn, haha!

Would depend on what a purposive interpretation of the phrase “unnecessarily” in the legislation would mean.
If it serves the purpose of announcing that the driver of a vehicle is a red neck with a small…. who can’t make a cogent argument nor understand government – I think it serves a necessary purpose.

Tell a lie, the honking stopped for a bit, but now it’s started again. I’d have thought 150 vehicles would be through by now, maybe they’re going around in circles…?

Honk if your horny what? Ah, pedantry – where would RA be without it?

Occurs to me that if these truck drivers really wanted to inconvenience the citizens of Canberra they should drive down to the coast on a Saturday morning. Having seen the huge tailback just one truck (and not an especially slow one at that) created on a holiday weekend going down the Clyde I imagine CONC would create gridlock.

Erg0 11:19 am 22 Aug 11

They’re just about through State Circle now – lots of air horns for the last 10 minutes or so. Despite my antipathy about the whole thing, I was a little disappointed when I thought I wasn’t going to see any trucks at all.
