Lizards Revenge update from camp Sunday 15th July 2012

An estimated 400 people marched to the gates of the Olympic Dam uranium mine today, marking the first day of the Lizards Revenge music and arts festival of resistance.

The overkill of police escorts did not dampen the festival atmosphere, and despite road blocks preventing access to the camp site forcing vehicles to be escorted in by police, the numbers at camp continue to grow.

Organisers estimate that 500 people are camping in the sand dunes at the festival site. Phot below from Roxby Downs Sun

Forty acts are confirmed to perform at the festival, including bands, cabaret and dance. All musicians will be using a solar and wind powered sound system, showcasing alternatives to dirty energy such as coal and uranium.

 Sunday events at the festival include a “Zombie Walk” to the gates of Olympic Dam, leaving camp at 2pm.
