Nimbin Mardigrass

Nimbin Mardigrass

Mission
End Cannabis Prohibition. Annual Australian Cannabis law reform rally and gathering on the first weekend of May.

General Information
For those who came in late…
“In March 1993, after a decade of raids and arrests, and a particularly intensive recent period of random street searches, arrests and rough treatment, a spontaneous demonstration erupted, and marched to the police station, pelting it with eggs and toilet paper. Negative newspaper reports followed.

.

Nimbin Hemp Embassy (formerly “Nimbin Hemp”) members decided to hold a peaceful protest in a non-confrontational atmosphere, that ordinary people could comfortably attend, on May 1, 1993.
That was the first MardiGrass. (The spelling is that officially used by the MardiGrass Organising Body) The MOB was formed to manage the event and consists entirely of volunteers. The intention is to hold a MardiGrass every year until prohibition ends.” www.nimbinmardigrass.com

Protesting can never be shut down.
Cannabis laws in Australia are a constant reminder of the injustice and harm imposed upon us by 'the powers that be'.
Following orders is against the will of the average activist.
Stay determined.

Weve reluctantly decided to postpone MardiGrass 1-3 May 2020 due to the uncertain times surrounding the corona virus.
The plan is to let things settle and move the dates forward once we are in the clear.
Tickets will be fully refunded or carried over to the next MardiGrass.
Scomo leaves us no choice anyway and lots of people need to make travel arrangements.
So hopefully see you all later in the year, or at the worst, May 2021.
We may do some MardiGrass events online over the Mayday weekend so keep an eye out for that as we go truly global.

Hi, I'm looking forward to attending the protest this year in 2020..need some help though. I guess I'm late in booking accomodations for myself, can anybody suggest safe places to stay for a couple of girls.
If not, the camping at the Nimbin Showgrounds..how safe are they in terms of keeping belongings? We don't have a caravan or a car and are worried about having to carry our cash and cards for all 3 days of the event.
Any leads on these questions would be great! I scanned all of Google and couldn't find a single helpful page!
Thanks ūüĆą

Bypass your doctor and your dealer. 
Treat yourself with medican premium
New laws come into effect today in New South Wales which mean that if you test positive to the presence of Cannabis (even if you are totally unimpaired and haven't had anything in 24 hours) you will lose your license immediately for 3 months.

This could be yours and grown in your own backyard for you and your family's health and well-being. Cannabis is medicinal but the law says that growing it at home is a crime. So you have to pay for expensive pharmaceutical drugs that are not as good and definitely not as natural as a herb. 

We need to grow our own legal medicine, at least six plants each for adults over 18, and in our own backyard. 

Aussies can safely vote for legal Cannabis in this election. At the polling booth you can privately make a mark for the plant that should never have been made illegal.

There are a couple of million Aussie voters who enjoy Cannabis regularly and they are not real criminals. #ausvotes #justlegaliseit

Since the last election there are no more senate group voting tickets. Now we have how to vote cards that are a guide only. 

Some parties have printed cards or made diagrams online displaying their 'preferences' in the current form. 

HEMP asks for your primary vote and leaves the decision up to you on who fills your six above the line on the senate ballot paper.

Better Cannabis legislation will improve our health, nutrition, policing and the annual budget.

Cannabis Prohibition has been a total failure and we have to stop strategies like sniffer dogs, Roadside Drug Testing and laws that have dramatically altered drug use trends in favour of undetectable powders, pills and expensive addictive pharmaceuticals.

Roadside Drug Testing, is a nightmare for Cannabis users and the police know it, they are targeting places like Nimbin. How can we possibly introduce a meaningful medical Cannabis program in Australia while no one can drive for days after using the herb?

In fact THC stays in your system for weeks if not months, unlike all other drugs. Testing for merely the presence of Cannabis is ridiculously unfair, it should be about driver impairment.

Imagine if you weren’t allowed to drive if you use pharmaceutical pills? 

Along with sniffer dogs RDT has dramatically altered drug trends in the country. Pot is out and pills are in thanks to our drug policies. Cannabis has never killed anyone in ten thousand years of use and needs to be separated and treated completely differently to the other illegal drugs.

We need to be allowed to grow our own medicine, at least six plants each for adults over 18, and in our own backyard. Cannabis law changes are spreading overseas like wildfire yet here we keep building new jails and our arrest rates continue the same.

The HEMP Party has nominated senate candidate in all states and the NT for a formal protest vote to end prohibition. #ausvotes #justlegaliseit #okaytobehigh
