Getting groovy with Ino

Originally from NZ, Ino Pio is proud to have called the Northern Rivers home for the last decade. When visiting Byron Bay or Ballina you will be sure to see him playing around town.

A big celebration will be held Saturday night, October 22, at the Nimbin Hall,  to commemorate the 40th anniversary of the Nightcap Action Group’s direct actions on Mt. Nardi, which resulted in the cessation of logging and the creation of the Nightcap National Park.

Co-organiser, John Seed, says he will be facilitating a deep ecology workshop that weekend, near Nimbin and will be at the town hall on Saturday night to tell some stories and sing a couple of songs.

He says, ‘I’m looking forward to reuniting with other forest protest musicians from days of yore, including Lisa Yeates and Soozah Clark. The Rainforest Information Centre grew out of these protests, and is one of the sponsors of this event’.

Entry by donation, doors open from 6pm.
