Stolenwealth Games

Help 3CR send a team of broadcasters to the Stolenwealth Games Protest April 4 - 15 2018, Queensland. We have 30 Limited Edition ‘Divine Intervention’ prints signed by Robbie Thorpe and Tom Civil. The “Divine Intervention” fire crest was a collaboration between Robbie Thorpe and Tom Civil in 2006 in the lead up to the  Melbourne Commonwealth (Stolenwealth) Games, and the Queen's visit. The crest symbolises the acknowledgement of Indigenous Law in Australia. Lightening strikes, igniting Indigenous Law represented by fire amongst the wattle branches, and in turn freeing the kangaroo and emu from their place in the 'Australian Coat of Arms'. The kangaroo and the emu then warm themselves by the fire. We are selling these limited edition screen prints for $100. We also have T-shirts $25 and tote bags for $20 each. So come down to the station during business hours and get some beautiful art and support an important project.

Eureka Flag

The Turnbull Government’s building industry attack dog has issued new Building Code rules that specifically ban the Eureka Flag from being displayed on a building site. In addition to banning the flag they have also banned putting stickers on hard hats. If an employer breaches the Code, they are ineligible to compete for Government work. Our station affiliate the CFMEU (Building Union Division) has launched a campaign to Break the Ban on flying the Eureka Flag. You can pick up free Break the Ban campaign stickers from 3CR office at 21 Smith Street Fitzroy during business hours. Listen to Concrete Gang to hear the latest updates on the campaign here
