A film about international solidarity. Colombia is the trade union murder capital of the world - since 2002, more than 470 workers’ leaders have been killed, usually by paramilitaries hired by private companies intent on crushing unions.

Trades Hall Auditorium, 4 Goulburn St. Organised by LASNET, supported by Unions NSW, ETU (Vic), AMWU, CFMEU(ME), LHMU, FoE.

His best film yet, as we hurtle toward another economic crisis it is timely to watch Moore's outrage at a system that bails out the rich while the poor suffer. Using anger and humour, the film helps us step back and ask whether a world where people and planet are slaves to profit has any future....and what alternatives could be created? Dinner available 6pm. Resistance Centre, 22 Mountain St, Ultimo. Donation entry $10 waged, $6 conc.
