Funds donated to support Phillipine anarchists from the Brisbane Anarchist Summer School

In the lead up to the Brisbane Anarchist Summer School, the Brisbane Solidarity Network was approached through personal networks to help support anarchists in the Philipines.

At the Anarchist Ball, we asked for donations, and promised a percentage of the door takings, would go to the Philipines.

$750 dollars was raised on that night!! Thank-you everybody for making that happen. That money has been send, and BSN can confirm it has been recieved.

It is being used to support projects like the Etniko Bandido Infoshop http://ebinfoshop.surestepintegral.com/
and the Black and Green Forums http://325.nostate.net/?p=7058

For some perspective, $750 au will cover the entire rent for the Infoshop for 3 years. It'll more then cover food costs for Food Not Bombs projects for many years (because over there it is almost impossible to bin dive food due to the intense poverty).

One of the campaigns they would like Australian anarchists to start supporting, is against the Australian mining companies that are destroying the environment in the south. It is not an easy campaign for the locals there, because life is cheap, and it costs about $100 au to pay for a 'hit' on any effective local activist. More on this in due time.
