Not usually a news-worthy topic here in Australia, but there were some shenanigans recently, involving our Prime minister, and her opposition counterpart.

Forty years this tent embassy has been a part of Australia's political scenery, including a bonfire and permanent tent city.

Take a look at the video at the following link.

More info on the recent shenanigans. I know this really doesn't have anything to do with #ows, but I'm just pointing out the fact that long-term occupation does happen in other places around the world.
