WA Red Cinema: I, Daniel Blake

Our next installment of WA Red Cinema.

June's film: I, Daniel Blake

Daniel Blake (Dave Johns) is a 59-year-old widowed carpenter who must rely on welfare after a recent heart attack leaves him unable to work. Despite his doctor's diagnosis, British authorities deny Blake's benefits and tell him to return to his job. As Daniel navigates his way through an agonizing appeal process, he begins to develop a strong bond with a destitute, single mother (Hayley Squires) who's struggling to take care of her two children.

The decision by the Rudd ALP government to deny settlement in Australia to all future asylum seekers coming by boat, instead dumping them in Papua New Guinea, reflects an appalling new low in racist vilification and scapegoating of refugees by both major political parties and the Australian media.

This meeting will be analyzing why this scapegoating occurs and what interests it serves.

Recently, rallies have been called throughout Australia by the racist group Reclaim Australia. These rallies have vilified Muslims and migrants, as well as people of other non-white backgrounds, claimed halal food supports terrorism, and called for a return to a White Australia policy. Reclaim Australia say they are not racist, however many of its supporters identify as neo-Nazis.
