Over 9 million Congolese have lost their lives in the 21st century's biggest humanitarian crisis - yet we hear nothing. This film exposes the role that the US and its allies, Rwanda and Uganda, have played in triggering this horror. The Congo crisis is given a historical, social and political context, with analysis from experts, activists and intellectuals that are rarely available to the public.
Film introduced by Mbuyi Tshielantende & Patrice Nyembo.
Donation entry to support the film and Congo solidarity. Dinner available from 6pm.

Greens MP Jamie Parker is hosting a rally to oppose the Liberal government's cuts to the Fire and Rescue NSW budget, which is impacting on the ability of fire stations to hire replacement staff for those off sick or on leave.
