Inside the Red Zone

As a PR exercise, they have re-named the Red Zone the "Rebuilding Zone", which is total crap, because veryone who lives here knows that there is not much rebuilding to speak of yet.

A couple of days ago, a video was released of new footage from inside the cordon, which sadly  shows the current state of our CBD.

You can see it here.

I particularly like the bit around the 2:22 mark where he records a tourist bus inside the cordon. I reckon the guys at the front of the bus are all tourists - snapping photos etc, while the few people up the back are residents - their faces are grim, and they seem a bit stricken by the site of everything.
