This year, Op Nov 5 was very small in comparison with 2011. It appears that being a Monday, only the dedicated were able to show their “Ideological” faces outside the NSW parliament house in Sydney.

The day started with my arrival at Occupy Sydney, a place at which my heart lies in spirit daily with those whom currently and have previously and will continue into the future to occupy. This movement has been a real “eye opener” in my personal life, on a journey that lead me to attend University.

After checking out the new flyers hanging on the Occupy Sydney base i decided to hang a few #OpNov5 ones also.

Soon after, some fellow anons arrived and after some greetings and chatting we decided to head up to NSW Parliament House.

Whilst the group was small, we were all very passionate about our stance on our Government and the wrongdoings we are seeing on a daily basis.

After making our presence known (and watching the Police Guard get on the radio and call for someone to come see what was going on) we decided we would spend some time hanging out, at Parliament house.

It was then decided we would move on and go visit the local apple store for a snap flyer hand out.

Lunch time in the city means shoppers, the apple store provided plenty of those.

After running out of flyers, we decided it was time to head back to Occupy to load up with flyers and see if any other Anons have arrived.

On our way back to Occupy we ran into the man below. He is seen quite regularly around Sydney with his Signs. I have dubbed thee, Mr Be Happy.

Upon arriving at Occupy, we were graced with more fellow Anons. After another quick greeting, we discussed and headed off to Parliament house for another stint at the gates.

Whilst at Parliament, more Anons came to grace us with their presence. Was great to have some awesome passionate people who are dedicated and committed to stand up for the wrongdoings they see in ours and other countries. I was proud to stand along side my brothers and sisters on this day.

Whilst the actions were slow (it was a Monday and most were at work or uni etc), a mega phone couldn’t be located as required, our passion and commitment was louder than any megaphone could have been. Some citizens stopped to question us as to why we were there and generally we were well received with only a few comments against what we are standing for. I did kindly remind some that “if you don’t stand for something, you will fall for anything”.  We also did a small action out the front of the US Embassy at the MLC Centre where Aussie Activist demanded the US release Bradley Manning, leave Julian Assange alone and stay out of Australian Politics.

As some Anons had to leave due to family commitments (and extended travel to come to sydney for the action), our crowd slowly dwindled down, but the passion and honor was still present. As we displayed our message to parliament and those whom entered and left the building. A group of students and tourists greeted the anons with requests of pictures and big thumbs up. Overall, the response to Anons at Parliament house was positive. Much appreciated Sydney and those whom stopped for a chat with the Anons on November 5th.

At just after 5pm, we decided to head back down to Occupy Sydney to see if any further anons had arrived. Occupiers whom stand in solidarity with Anons were present at the Occupy site and showed solidarity for our actions on this day. As it was a Monday, Sydney’s Wall Street gets awfully quiet in the evening time, so i decided to hang around and see if others showed for night actions.

Attending the Occupy Sydney GA until 8pm and no further Anons arriving at Occupy, i decided i would call it a day and head home for my 45mins-1hr trip home from Sydney city to my locality in ‘the burbs’ and to my wonderful kiddies.

In all, i was disappointed in the lack of effort of Anons in the Greater Sydney Basin, however, in saying that, on this day, i saw quality, not quantity. The Anons that stood outside Parliament represented the dedicated, selfless and downright Awesome of the Anons in Greater Sydney Basin, so to them (and they know who they are) a huge THANK YOU from me to you, brothers and sister.

They are all crap. When representative democracy fails, direct democracy is our other option

Until next time we meet. Remember, Remember, the 5th of November.
