  1. Alas – that’s the nature of the “event” these days. Everyone and everything attaches itself to the flotilla because the corporate culture commodifies everything. Although to be fair the success of recent protest movements has been driven in no small part by their ability to tap into hypermodernity and its attention-grabbing devices. There would be more than a few sincere protesters themselves who do not know what APEC stands for either. Perhaps sometimes the chickens come home to roost!

  2. Have you emerging churchies tried this approach to outreach? I know a few blokes at my rugby club who would come to this kind of church meeting ????
