Each year since 2002 the Anarchist Media Institute has organised commemorative events at Ballarat on December 3, the anniversary of the military suppression of the Eureka Rebellion and the massacre that occurred that morning. Over this period they have grown to incorporate various events around Ballarat starting with the Dawn Vigil at 4am and concluding with a Eureka Guest talk and meal in the evening finishing about 10pm or later.

It has become a consistent event where anybody is welcome to participate in the spirit of the original diggers. In recent years the Dawn Vigil ceremony have also been broadcast live and streamed over the internet on Melbourne community radio station 3CR.

So, come and join with us in commemorating the radical spirit of the Eureka rebellion.
