On Monday 31st October an extraordinary Council meeting was scheduled to discuss the figs, but not enough Councillors turned up for a quorum!
This was taken on the steps of City Hall prior to the meeting.
By Wednesday there was a mini tent city in Civic park.
Word was the chainsaws were finally doing there work that day.
But the figs had a last-minute stay of execution. A supreme court injunction means that everything has been stopped. And we might finally get back access to our library and art gallery.
I decided to document the signs and artworks that have been spontaneously appearing on the barricades. It’s rather like a community art gallery.
