MardiGrass 2021 is going ahead and they are planning plenty of entertainment and activism from the joint rolling comp and HEMP Olympix to the Rally for Law Reform. These will be just some of the many fun activities, pointed campaigning, music, and speakers who will be part of the festival this year.
Nimbin's 24th MardiGrass starting today features a big lineup of celebrities and experts, including controversial broadcaster Derryn Hinch and actor Tony Barry, all urging reform of controversial cannabis laws in order to save lives and boost the country’s economy.
Nimbin MardiGrass organisers are hoping the wet weather this weekend fails to put a dampener on the joint. They also hope the rain might slow down the expected police operation targeting drivers who may have cannabis in their system.
Filming of the Netflix series Byron Baes has reportedly commenced without any effort made by the show's production company – Eureka Productions – to consult with local indigenous groups or the local Council.
