In 2011 Fee gave up her increasingly respectable career as a creative digital consultant in order to take up a new life as a bus-loving nomadic geek artist. In a reaction against the shift in global politics, she set out to discover how someone could disconnect as much as possible from a broken socio political system while maintaining meaningful connection to the people and places which enable her own vision of home and self.

Her work explores the increasing removal of ‘the commons’ in contemporary life, from common land and open democracy through to open source creative digital commons, and the tensions which exist between them.

A brief interview with Graeme Dunstan (@peacebusdotcomFrontier Wars) after the Australian Federal Police (backed by Riot Police) prevented a peaceful march as part of the ANZAC Centenary. 

Representatives and those of all colours marching in solidarity came to the ANZAC Day Centenary Parade from all over the country. They gathered to honour the Black Diggers and all those who died and have been forgotten since the Frontier Wars (the first wars this country ever saw).

Today, 25th April 2015, Australian Federal Police, backed by Riot Police, prevented a peaceful march as part of the ANZAC Centenary. Representatives and those of all colours marching in solidarity came to the ANZAC Day Centenary Parade from all over the country. They gathered to honour the Black Diggers and all those who died and have been forgotten since the Frontier Wars (the first wars this country ever saw).

During this peaceful protest, one of the First Nations Elders was harassed by Senior Sergeant Adrian Crank who threatened to use his taser without any reasonable provocation.

A Press Release is available via the Sovereign Parliament Facebook Page.

a few shots from tonight's #frontierwars ANZAC Peace Vigil, Canberra

1 min read

Frontier Wars is a storytelling camp at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy in Canberra taking place around the ANZAC Centenary (19-26 April 2015). Throughout the week we have been listening to stories about colonisation (the first war this country ever saw) and sharing knowledge across cultures and geographies.

The ANZAC Peace Vigil was a moving event tonight, the eve of ANZAC Day. We started from the top of Mount Ainslie with a traditional First Nations 'challenge' (allowing men to be on the women's mountain) and smoking ceremony. Then, lit entirely by lanterns and accompanied by clap sticks, we walked down to the War Memorial, sharing personal reflections on the wars of old and waging peace for our shared future.

These are a few shots from the night (more shots from the preparations are on the flickrset).

Join us tomorrow for the fifth annual Frontier Wars March x

Canberra is gleaming in deliciously warm sunlight today, after several days/nights of bitter cold (so lots of fireside time, which ain't half bad :).

It's hard to know what to share from the talks and films so far, but the fact i'm knitting rather than tweeting probably says something in itself.

Stumbled on the below First Dog On The Moon​ strip from last year, and after watching a film from last year am wondering if our march on Sunday will be welcomed in this time around.

I know the weather is pretty awful (especially NSW, stay safe guys) but for anyone who can, come and join us at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy​ for the talks/films this week, the vigil (24th) and the march (25th): http://www.peacebus.com/FrontierWars/StorytellingCamp2015.html
