Support our annual Argentinian Asado, hosted by the Latin America Social Forum & Socialist Alliance.

Celebrate and reflect on a momentous year of making trouble for the 1%.

It is the real deal — a buffet style BBQ, salads and dessert. We will also be catering for vegans and vegetarians. Drinks will be available.

Spiralling poverty, deprivation, price rises and chronic unemployment are behind the latest round of anti-government protests in Iran that began in late December.

RUPEN SAVOULIAN from Socialist Alliance will present some historical context about previous anti-dictatorship struggles.

RONAHI QANDIL, a Kurdish activist, will speak about the current situation. Ronahi was jailed by the Islamic government when she was 17 years of age and migrated to Sweden three years later. She is not able to go back to Kurdistan (Iran).

The struggle by oppressed nations for their liberation remains a burning issue today and for those of us in the First World — in a position to organise international solidarity — it remains important to understand.

The Palestinian’s struggle for justice, the Catalan's people for a seperate state and the Kurdish people’s struggle for democratic confederalism in northern Syria — although different — are critical reminders.

Shot on his mobile phone from inside detention on Manus Island and sent to filmmaker Arash Kamali Sarvestani, this film by Kurdish-Iranian refugee and journalist Behrouz Boochani is a unique record of life inside detention. The film is still on limited release: don't miss your chance to see it.

She’s Beautiful When She’s Angry reflects on the multi-layered strands of feminism in the US from the late 1960s through the mid 1970s.

It includes interviews with feminists from those times, and includes original footage of the battles that were waged.

In these times when women's rights are even more under attack from neoliberal governments here (and in the US) this film is a reminder of what the second wave of the women's movement achieved.
