What is happening MardiGrass 2013, what has been happening inside the old H*E*M*P*Bar since it reopened? And why is this webpage starting to look like a toilet roll?
These are just some of the questions being asked out loud inside the H*E*M*P*party Bar, and I only have some of the answers, one of which, would be that the H*E*M*P*party Bar has now become POLITE FORCE Head Quarters another answer is YES!!!!! the web camera is back online
If you look closely at the webcamera image you will see the huge amount of work we have done making improvements to the "Performance Space", at the moment, our primary focus is on spreading the word about the hempseed food revolution that is taking place in Australia ....................
These days an entirely new aroma comes wafting out of the
front door of the H*E*M*P Bar when you walk past, it’s the smell of 100%
LEGAL hemp seed cooking. A massive amount of work ‘behind the scenes’ has
been done by some very dedicated activists over the last months to prepare
a menu of hemp food items for the culinary delight of both locals and
As of February 2011, we can safely
NBN TV NEWS ITEM - APRIL FOOLS DAY 2009
Nature abhors a vacuum, Nimbin doubly so and now a new vision occupies the space formerly occupied by the H*E*M*P*Bar. Everything, and I mean everything, has been removed back to the bare bones of the wall and floorboards and the entire performance space has been reconfigured.
The sink and the entire 'kiosk apparatus' has been moved to the very back of the 'annex', the walls have all been stripped back to reveal the original paintings- when we moved the refrigerator for example, we uncovered an absolute masterpiece by Elsbeth Jones of Bob Marley. Point being, the new interior looks completely different in the same way that a Rolls Royce looks different from the model before.
The H*E*M*P*Embassy Committee has decided to keep the 'name' on going, the committee is certain that no matter how hard they try, people will always refer to the annex as the HEMP Bar, indeed, the decision to keep the same cyber web address was actually the most cyber-environmentally friendly decision the H*E*M*P*Embassy Committee could make, not only did it save buying another domain name and things like that, but it also means that the new H*E*M*P*Bar can take advantage of the extraordinary amount of real life and cyber promotion done over the years by fans of the old H*E*M*P*Bar who created the thousands of links to www.nimbinHEMPbar.com on most every cannabis related website, facebook, forum or bill board you can find on the Internet.
The new H*E*M*P*Bar WILL NOT be a CANNABIS CAFE DEMONSTRATION MODEL. No pot will be sold on the premises. The rights of individuals to sell pot on the black market IS NOT and never has been, a part of our activism.
The new H*E*M*P*Bar WILL NOT be focusing on 'smoking' pot, indeed, pot smoking inside the H*E*M*P*Bar will no longer be considered a political act, rather, it will be considered as an act that could get us closed down, so we are hoping our visitors will respect this.
The new H*E*M*P*Bar WILL be a place to relax and talk about cannabis law reform while you sit at a table, perhaps sipping a cup of coffee and catching up on the latest news in cannabis law reform.
The new H*E*M*P*Bar WILL be a performance space that features a web camera, however the web camera WILL NOT be used to justify the smoking of cannabis, rather, the webcam will concentrate on showing the faces of real people who believe the law should be changed.
The new H*E*M*P*Bar WILL be, as ever, a meeting place for Cannabis Law Reform activists from all over earth.
The new H*E*M*P*Bar WILL be the new HeadQuarters of the POLITE FORCE.
The new H*E*M*P*Bar WILL be able to host a lot more activists a lot more comfortably because it will have a greater number of tables and chairs...
Bottom Line? The future of new H*E*M*P*Bar has so many unknown factors that it's pointless of me to ponder them further lest I start to sound like Donald Rumsfeld at a Department of Defense News Briefing (Feb. 12, 2002)
"As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say, we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know."
No band was playing, nor
was crowd cheering as the H*E*M*P Bar opened its doors on January 11 at
noon, ZERO local, international visitors or POLICE were queued outside to
be the first one through the doors, however, the web audience was there
for the relaunch. As ever, observer and the news gathering robot at
www.drugsense.org/chat where the first to log on, followed closely by
visitors from the facebook, msn, yahoo, Gtalk, skype and ICQ networks...
