A history of ‘freedom’ and the Northern Rivers vaccine divide

Among the many myths about the COVID-19 vaccines is a belief they contain live virus that a vaccinated person will shed in social and intimate circumstances. Along with many other vaccine myths, this belief is contributing to a significant divide in the Northern Rivers community.

Have you ever wanted to be part of an opening ceremony? Well now’s your chance. The Commonwealth Games will be held just up the road on the Gold Coast and you can get involved but you have to apply by midnight September 3.

Local performer, Charles Crawshaw, is enthusiastic about the forthcoming auditions.

‘I’d would love it if Byron Bay sends a bus load up to the Gold Coast for the auditions in September. We have so many talented people here that would be fully self expressed if chosen to open the games next year.’

They are looking for a range of skilled and unskilled performers who can get involved and no experience is needed.

To apply you have to be 16, or 16 by September 3, and ready to commit to rehearsals on the Gold Coast from mid-January 2018. They will start at two per week building up to three-four rehearsals a week just prior to the opening ceremony.

If you want to get involved find out more and apply to audition here.

    Dear Echo,

    Thank you for posting this invitation last year.

    You will be pleased to know I passed the auditions and was one of the ‘Lorikeets (promoting Currumbin Wildlife Sanctuary) in the opening ceremony on the 4th April 2018. From there I launched the Queens Peace project (QueensPeace.com ) and today I find myself launching the “Sand With A Line” Project which is standing for WORLD PEACE BY TUESDAY 15 SEPTEMBER 2020 : PASS IT ON! YOU’RE IT!
