Jumping Fences play a unique fusion of Latin American and original
songs, creating a sensitive insight into the daily struggles of people. The
song-writing partnership of Sue Monk and Lachlan Hurse join forces
with Ross Gwyther on tenor sax and clarinet, and James Harper on
percussion, developing arrangements that move easily between
tenderness and energy, supporting lyrics that weave a rich fabric from
the poetry of everyday life. [website]

Welcome to WBTWBT addresses the following questions:
1. Industrial question: The Master/servant relationship. The struggle for Worker Control.
2. Ownership question: Who owns the land or does the land own us? Rights to the city, right to country. The struggle of indigenous people for land rights and social justice in Australia.
3. Political question: This is the class struggle. Who owns the means of production? Who governs? How are democratic rights won and shared.
