None of the 400 seats in the main Teachers Federation Conference Centre auditorium was empty; every step had two or three people seated, and it was standing-room only as the rest of the audience – standing – packed every other part of the room.

A second large space was opened for the overflow crowd, who got to view proceedings live on big TV screens.

The venue manager, who had never seen such a crowd, estimated a total of about 1200 people.

The atmosphere was electric at this, the first of a series of rolling rallies across Australia in support of our precious national broadcaster.
