Mood: accident prone
Topic: local news
We had three public interest legal cases to assist with yesterday 6 June 2008 in the Sydney CBD - one as tutor to our ecology action volunteer Carol and her solicitor Pam Suttor. Another as agent for one veteran agitator on public interest issues Neville Diamond in the Coca Cola/Gosford Council water bottling case in the Land & Enviroment Court and thirdly searching out the subpoena procedures for a civil liberties case in the local court.
Also firming up the detail and process for application for sole practitioner status to continue providing pro bono legal advice after 2 years part time with little AAT Legal (and sundry other legal experience). All this keeping us off our regular mico news blog work yesterday. The previous day was testing and interview for legal temping work, another next Tuesday with a big law firm who can use our 57 words per minutes in an admin role.
But even with these challenges we felt a big twinge of sympathy for this public bus driver and his "NOT IN SERVICE". There he was with yellow flashing lights looking disconsolate, and obviously broken down stuck like the proverbial cork in the bottle corner of Market and George St at about 11.30 am. What a metaphor. It's all relative.
Then this guy just a bit further down in George St. Ouch.
