Tickets are $18 waged, or $14 concession. This is being put on by the Electrical Trades Union Light on the Hill campaign as part of the Queensland anti-privatisation campaign.

For those that missed the ‘Age of Stupid’ screening up at Kuranda last weekend, it will be on again on November 27, at the Civic Theatre.
On December 12, the Walk Against Warming will be held along the Cairns Esplanade.
Green Left Weekly is available at Community Foods, 74 Shields Street ; Neil's Organics, cnr McLeod and James Streets; and the James Cook University Refectory.

Why walk against something that you have absolutely no control over?
I wonder how many walkers will drive to the esplanade in their CO2emitting cars from their CO2 emitting homes on the 12th December?
A more sensible protest would be to walk against the Rudd governments ridiculous ETS which will do nothing to reduce emissions whilst taxing us all into poverty.
Wake up you hypocrites!

I think a walk of off a short plank is more appropriate for these tree huggers.

Whilst I prefer the company of trees over most alleged human beings, I've never wanted to hug one.

I have hugged a tree. Apart from a little bark residue it was OK. Now I prefer lemon scented gums.

I get more worried about the give-ups on this blog than I do about the hyperbole of those who are at least having a go.

Oh and wade, it's a long walk off a short plank (for maximum rhetorical effect). Or "up the long ladder and down the short rope. To hell with King Billy. God bless the Pope".

I just hugged a lychee tree, it was pretty good. Just like a cuddle from an old grandmother of the backyard.

I always thought it was a strange proclivity but I am starting to see the appeal!

Yeah, I thought it was 'a long walk off a short pier'.

Wade is funny. Just like Barnaby.
