Since the fateful eviction day of the 21st of October 2011, the diaspora of those who participated in or bore witness to Occupy Melbourne have continued to engage with the global Occupy movement in a multitude of ways. Many have remained close to those networks that were cemented in the City Square occupation, others have moved on to new activist projects, returned to old projects, or possibly dissociated themselves from the Occupy Melbourne protest altogether.

Federal Agriculture Minister Joe Ludwig will be talking to the Rural Press Club of Victoria on Australia's first National Food Plan. Australia needs a food plan that supports people's health and the ability of farmers to make a living. Instead this is a plan to support Big Food and the processed food industry. Meet the farmers and primary producers who work to keep our seed, food and agricultural land in local hands, growing food for us all.
