Everyone knows about the Arts Centre spire and Melbourne's laneways, but did you also know Melbourne is home to some of Australia's biggest corporate 1%-ers? Every week we will do a peaceful 'sight-seeing' march through the CBD visiting some of the worst offenders. Who's your nomination? Is it a company who attacks their workers, or a company that makes billions by trashing our environment? Or a CEO who pays themselves millions while outsourcing your jobs?
Every Friday. City Square, cnr Collins & Swanston Sts, City.
Until Sunday, June 17
