2008 POLICE MARDIGRASS EVENTS:

April 1st - Hemp Embassy, Hemp Bar and Museum raided. Eight cautions, no actual arrests. Large amount hemp meal and hemp oil food confiscated and weighed with all else. A media fraud, a beat-up, a mere smear and an April Fools joke on the public.


2009 DRIVER ADVICE

The roads around Nimbin will have more than usual policing in the week preceding MardiGrass. Any open breaches of the law during MardiGrass will be dealt with.

Thats as official a word on that as we have, so please come, and don't break any laws in front of the police, and let's show them that we are not criminals.

 

We may see an Iemma-bago Drug Testing Unit on roads leading to Nimbin during MardiGrass. We might even see all three of them! We would recommend the designated driver system, where the straight person drives. We cannot really recommend travelling with a depressant, anti-depressant, opiate or cocaine using driver, that they don't test for despite there being saliva tests for these substances. The HEMP Embassy tested the Drugwipe Twin cannabis/amphetamine saliva kits, as used by police, recently and the results are here.

In 2006 people coming via Murwillumbah were told to turn back by police officers, who also were reported to have said that Nimbin was full. This was false information. We have never been "full". Mistrust any suggestion that you should turn back. Say you are visiting relatives that live somewhere ahead other than Nimbin, or try another road in maybe. Don't just slink away, intimidated and afraid. Contact us and tell us about it when you arrive.

Police activity and traffic on the roads around Nimbin will reach a peak on the Friday to Sunday of MardiGrass, and will probably begin to build up the week before.

There have been other events and trends claiming the attentions of the local police command the last twelve months, so, as reserve bogeymen to scare the isolated voters with, we Nimbinites haven't had much demonising publicity between last year's MardiGrass and now, which is good.

Greater numbers are the best response to intimidation.

Don't encourage the official fear exploiters..

Come to MardiGrass

Arrive early, leave late.
