Police lines after the breaching of the fence excluding the public from the Sydney Opera House, 30 August 2005

30A - Bearing Witness to CEOs
who cost the Earth
Sydney Opera House 30 - 31 August 2005


During the 30 August to 1 September the Forbes Global CEO Conference was hosted by the Premier of New South Wales and it occupied the Sydney Opera House to the exclusion of all else.

Both the Australian federal government and the NSW State governments subsidised the Conference to the tune of $1.3 million each.

The presence of the gathered global corporate elite, which included the participation of Iraq war profiteers and climate criminals, became the focus of a major mobilisation of mass dissent in Sydney and it drew the participation from interstate and New Zealand activists too
