Sydney’s anti-lockouts movement is gathering speed, with the Keep Sydney Open organisation announcing a rally and live performances to protest the State Government’s current restrictions on nightlife and business.
The rally, which will meet at Belmore Park next to Central Station at 12:30pm this Sunday February 21, is set to be the city’s largest anti-lockouts demonstration yet. Its route will include Bar Century, the latest venue to announce its impending closure, where there’ll be a mock funeral for small businesses and jobs lost since the introduction of the lockouts two years ago.
The event will also include live performances by high-energy local acts Art vs Science and Royal Headache, plus speeches and appearances from Isabella Manfredi (The Preatures), Dave Faulkner (Hoodoo Gurus), Bernard Keane (Crikey) and Tyson Koh (Keep Sydney Open).
Find out more about Keep Sydney Open at its official website, and be there on Sunday to help revive our city’s nightlife and entertainment scene.
