I know that it only leaves 5 days for delivery, but up until now I have had neither the 'access' to a flag nor a post office. Would it be worth it at all to send it, or would it arrive too late? I gate mucking up- and I'd rather not bother with the expense of sending the flag unless it will be able to 'attend', haha.
The team from Associated Press who are attending the conference tomorrow will also be visiting the Principality of Dubeldeka and Atlantium's Province of Aurora next Tuesday to shoot aditional footage for their story.
The piece from the Sydney Morning Herald is utter fail, clearly just lifted from an unrelated piece about islands for sale, and they've attributed it to "pr-inside.com", a 'post your own press release' website!
I'm delighted and relieved to announce that after an exhausting and sometimes frantic final few weeks of preparation - following nearly 5 months of planning - the world's first-ever academic conference on micronations went off without a hitch last Saturday.
A small group of conference presenters and friends attended a pre-event dinner at the African Queen restaurant in the inner-city Sydney suburb of Marrickville on Friday evening, where they enjoyed the company of author and Sydney Morning Herald journalist Mark Dapin, whose best-selling book Strange Countryincludes a chapter about Australian micronations.
The following morning delegates gathered at Brooklyn, on Sydney's northern outskirts, to board the ferry to Dangar Island. They were delivered to the conference venue after a scenic 20-minute journey across the Hawkesbury River.
Media representatives from Globo TV (Brazil), the BBC (UK), Associated Press (USA/worldwide) and Fairfax News (Australia) were on hand to record proceedings, and many conference delegates were interviewed at at some point during the day.
The entire event was filmed by Paul Poet and his crew for Empire Me: New Worlds Are Happening, the 90-minute documentary about micronations and alternative communities, which is scheduled for release in October 2010 at the Berlin Film Festival.
The raw footage will be made available to conference organisers (hopefully prior to October, subject to the approval of the film's producers), and will be edited and made available for online viewing in due course. And by "due course" I'm thinking months, not days - so please be patient!
At the conclusion of the day's events I had the honour of awarding the Collar of the Auroran Order to conference co-convenor and driving force Dr Judy Lattas - after which delegates retired to the local bowling club for a well-earned beer (or three).
Sharwan: Hi My grandparents own 18.31 agriculture land in Rajasthan (India), I have declared that an independent country. I want your help for my micronation project,NO Im not asking for money, just ideas and creative help.
