Anna (Radio Reversal) and Belle (Only Human) interviewed Mazen AlKhaldi, who is a Deaf Palestinian based in Naarm (Melbourne). They discussed accessibility at actions for the Justice for Palestine movement in so called "Australia", how the genocide has impacted Deaf and Disabled people, including surviving bombardment and accessing healthcare in Gaza, and how to act in solidarity with Palestinians. You can follow Mazen on Instagram where he provides information in Auslan.

This episode also featured a speech by Dr Muntaser Musameh about his experience being shot by IDF soldiers and his ongoing trauma. For more information about solidarity actions around the nation go to apan.org.au or for local actions go to Justice for Palestine here.

In our first chat, ‘Magic Mushrooms’ Part 1, we introduced you to psilocybin mushrooms in general… Gold Tops and Blue Meanies, as well as the renewed interest for therapeutic use. Well, things have progressed…

❓ Zed Trivia | Cybernana Market Day 1996 ❓

Heather Anderson is back writing 4ZZZ history! Currently about the Cybernana Market Day in October 1996 (the riot day).

In 1996 the Cybernana Market Day at Musgrave Park, was shut down by more than 60 police in riot gear, some on horses, as well as military police who “just happened to be in the neighbourhood”. 4ZZZ filed a formal complaint to the Criminal Justice Commission to investigate police brutality and harassment of the station – however no police were found to be negligent in their duty on that day. Over 50 people were arrested during the police riot, mostly for riotous behaviour. Many people were injured, including volunteers, and the event had a significant impact on many Zedders involved on the day. Although not all bands got to play, the line up that day included:

Adrenalentil | Blitz Babiez | Blowhard | Blunt | Diolene | Disrupt Youth | Dogmachine | Dregs of Humanity | Drop | Earthmetal | Feedtime | Flowmadik | Fur | Grumblemorph | Invisible Empire | Jandy Rainbow | John Lee Spider | Misery | Organarchy | Ostia, Pollen | Porno Flick Bitches | Pygmy Limbo Dancers | Screamfeeder | Small World Experience | Silence, Something for Kate | St. Jude | Subterraneans | Taxi | The Invisible Empire | The Subterraneans | The Wishing Chair | Turnpike | Turtlebox | Velour | Weave | Webster

Heather is looking for some STORIES from those involved or present on the day. Heather was working with the complaints procedure so has most of the info needed regarding 'facts' etc but would love to include a few more personal anecdotes.

If you have a story to tell from that day, Heather would love to hear it, send her an email - drheatheranderson@gmail.com

Additionally - Does anyone know 'handcuffed guy'? So many people spoke to him that night, handcuffed to a wire fence in the lightning storm, possibly waiting for more paddy wagons as they were all full.
