Armidale Rural Australians for Refugees and Progressive Cinema present "CHASING ASYLUM" on Friday, 19th August, at 6pm, at Kent House in Faulkner Street, opposite Central Park. All welcome to the screening and community dinner afterwards. Entry and dinner free.

CHASING ASYLUM exposes the real impact of Australia’s offshore detention policies and explores how 'The Lucky Country' became a country where leaders choose detention over compassion and governments deprive the desperate of their basic human rights.

Organising meeting at the SNELCC Office, Level 1, 3/119 Beardy Street.

New England Friends of Green Left present Blood on the Coal - The Story of Queensland's Coal Miners and Their Union.

Join the open organising meeting at the Imperial Hotel.

Catch up with Sustainable Sustainable Living Armidale, the New England Greens and Socialist Alliance New England at the Markets in the Mall organised by Armidale PCYC on the last Sunday of the month.

Disruption is the story of our unique moment in history - an age of tipping points and rapid change. We’re the first generation to feel the impacts of climate disruption, and the last generation to be able to do something about it. The film makes a compelling call for bold action towards a just and sustainable future. At the Armidale Club, 91 Beardy Street.

Branch Meeting at Kent House, 142 Faulkner Street - supporters welcome!

New England Friends of the Green Left Weekly and Progressive Cinema present 'This Changes Everything' at the Uniting Church Hall. Inspired by Naomi Klein’s international non-fiction bestseller ‘This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs the Climate’, the film presents seven powerful portraits of communities on the front lines, from Montana’s Powder River Basin to the Alberta Tar Sands, from the coast of South India to Beijing and beyond. Interwoven with these stories of struggle is Klein’s narration, connecting the carbon in the air with the economic system that put it there.

Set against the backdrop of an ever increasing thirst for fossil fuels by the extractive industry and Australian governments, Black Hole tells the story of the ongoing battle to save the Leard Forest. Dr Kerri Clarke, Environmental Representative on the Maules Creek Coal CCC, will inform us about recent developments and the work of the WANDO Conservation and Cultural Centre. Followed by a community dinner. Screening and dinner free. We will collect donations for the WANDO Conservation and Cultural Centre. At Kent House, 141 Faulkner Street, opposite Central Park.

Meeting at the Jacaranda Room behind Kent House, Faulkner Street, opposite Central Park.
