Eureka Day at Ballarat is both an emotionally and physically exhausting day. Starting at 4.00am and finishing around 3.00pm, it can be a particularly tiring day for people who have only managed to get a few hours sleep. This year was the 6th Anarchist Media Institute Australia Day celebrations. As the 3rd of December fell on a Monday, many of the participants from the last 2 years didn’t put in an appearance, sending their apologies instead. A pity when you think about it, because the idea behind holding the celebrations on the 3rd was to encourage people to take the day off work.
