20 years on - lessons from the S11 blockade with James Plested and James Vigus

Twenty years ago, the 11-13 September blockade of the World Economic Forum’s Asia-Pacific Economic Summit, held at Melbourne’s Crown Casino complex, was disrupted by an estimated 20,000 protesters. James Plested and James Vigus are revolutionary socialists who were active participants at S11. On this episode we discuss the political context, debates, actions, and legacy of S11 and the 'battle of Melbourne'.
