You cannot burn a mummy blog: @burgewords comments






Over the weekend a ripple of panic went through the social media in Australia. I was alerted to it by one of my Twitter friends.

  I started writing this on Tuesday, March 18, 2014, on a flight home after attending March in March (MiM) Melbourne last Sunday, and MiM Canberra on Monday, March 17. I am still giving thanks, six days later, for the miracle that ensured MiM 2014 was a great success, that the vision I had for the marches […]






We are family: Sydney’s #MarchInMarch, by @coolmccool






[clear] By Jim McCool  @coolmccool Last Sunday, despite a thunderstorm and torrential downpours, thousands of Sydneysiders joined the #MarchInMarch protests.

New Politics, New Media: On-the-ground #MarchinMarch reporting by citizen journalist @jansant






By Wayne Jansson  @jansant 20th March 2014 It’s normal to start a story at the beginning. I’m going to start smack bang in the middle with this one, as it sums up one of the many factors which forced 100,000 plus people to MarchInMarch (MiM) around Australia. I say forced intentionally. People don’t take to the streets in […]






Sssshhhh, don’t tell the media, but politics is changing from the ground-up, by @ariadne_syd






Ariadne Vromen, @ariadne_syd Source: The Conversation University of Sydney 21st March 2014 Political participation in Australia will soon be about hope – and the transformation of citizenship engagement in this country. Here is why. Traditionally, Australian political participation was centred on, and supported by, the electoral system, political parties and major political organisations.

Training it to Melbourne’s #MarchinMarch, by @jenoutwest






[clear] By Jenny Bates  @jenoutwest, 17 March, 2014 Our journey to March in March began Sunday morning on a standing room only train to Melbourne – amazing, considering not an AFL colour could be seen.
