SYDNEY Around 1000 people
enjoyed themselves at the inaugural Rock 4 Refugees concert on the afternoon
of October 27. The concert was held at Henson Park, Marrickville. Among
the bands that performed were Mental As Anything (pictured), the Stiff
Gins, Penelope Swayles, Urban Guerillas, MC Trey, Gas and the General,
Maya Jupiter, Dog Trumpet and many more. The day was hosted by a number
of well-known celebrities, including actor John Howard. All proceeds went
to assist asylum seekers and the refugees' rights campaign. A number of
souvenir T-shirts, designed by Reg Mombasa, are still available from Resistance
centres in Sydney (see page 2). Phone (02) 9690 1977 to order one.
