The People Speak – Australian Palestinian Partnerships

Upcoming events:

Film screening: The People Speak

4-7pm Saturday 4th February

Loophole Community Centre
670 High Street, Thornbury

Inspired by Howard Zinn’s books, The People Speak celebrates the extraordinary possibilities for creating social change that ordinary people have realized throughout the course of the United States’ rich but often ignored history of dissent and protest.

“If there is no struggle there is no progress. Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did and it never will.”
—Howard Zinn (1922–2010)

Entry by $5 minimum donation: This will be a fundraiser to help pay for a computer for Mahmoud. Mahmoud is from Palestine and has had to seek asylum in Australia. He has been in detention centers for too long and even after being granted refugee status the Department of Immigration still keeps him locked up under the status of a ‘security check’. So far, this security check has taken 8 months. Mahmoud is a talented illustrator and animator and this computer will allow him to start telling stories of refugees and to start being creative again.

Organised by Industrial Workers of the World Melbourne
