Progressive Cinema in Uralla presents John Pilger's UTOPIA on Invasion Day, 26 January, at 7pm, at McCrossin's Mill, 24-28 Salisbury St, Uralla. Pilger's narrative explores the history of genocide and oppression in this country since the arrival of the first colonizers. For those living in remote Aboriginal townships, the story today continues to be a tale of outrageous contempt for the traditional owners of this country and one in which everyday Australians, politicians and mining companies are complicit.

A nuclear war between the United States and China is not only imaginable but a current ‘contingency’, says the Pentagon. This film by John Pilger is both a warning and an inspiring story of resistance. At Kent House, Faulkner Street opposite Central Park, Armidale, NSW.

SANE opposes constitutional recognition and we are organising this workshop to discuss this and other matters concerning ATSI rights. Mccrossin's Mill Museum Uralla, Maitland Street, Uralla.

Coral reefs around the world are vanishing at an unprecedented rate.

This film was first screened six months after the invasion of Iraq in March 2003 and two years after the invasion of Afghanistan in October 2001. Neither Afghanistan nor Iraq have had peace ever since. In fact, the war has been extended to Syria and other countries. It is timely to re-screen this film which dissects the truth and lies behind the 'War on Terror’. It investigates the discrepancies between American and British justification for 'war' and the facts on the ground in Afghanistan and Washington DC. At McCrossin's Mill, 24-28 Salisbury St, Uralla.

All members and supporters welcome at Kent House, Faulkner Street, opposite Central Park.
