Progressive Cinema presents John Pilger's Breaking the Silence: Truth and Lies in the War on Terror

Date: Fri 19 Feb, 6:00pm

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 Kent House in Faulkner Street, opposite Central Park, followed by discussion and community dinner. Entry and dinner free, donations to cover costs and support the Green Left Weekly are welcome.

Rally: These cuts are killing us: End healthcare austerity.

Date: Sat 20 Feb, 12:00pm

Saturday, February 20 The Turnbull Coalition government is reducing funding for pathology tests. This could lead to us paying at least $30 for pap smears and urine and blood tests. These tests save lives and nobody should go without healthcare because they can't afford it. We need publically provided free and accessible pathology rather than cuts that bring uncertainty and anxiety to some of the most vulnerable in society. Only action will stop these cuts. Sign the petition here: Stop the cuts. 12 noon. State Library 328 Swanston St, City.
