Alongside Saturday’s famous free Waterloo sausage sizzle, we will show 90 minutes of short films about battles for green spaces and the environment, gender and social justice short films. Highlights shared from the first Love, Art and Revolution Film Festival, which was held in Gadi/Sydney in April 2023.

First Nations resistance, the militant class struggle events, women and queer organising, public housing battles and the Green Bans. All the people's history excluded from the annals of public memory because they challenge the order of colonial, then capitalist, governments.

The Giants is an incredible film on the life, activism and political career of Bob Brown. Whilst looking backwards at a career that spans the Franklin River campaign, the formation of the Australian Greens, the Tarkine campaign and a remarkable political career as a Senator, it also explores the hidden life of threatened trees.

Meet us at Geelong Trades Hall at 4pm on Saturday 18th February to take part in a Radical History Walking Tour of union and social justice struggle at a number of different sites in the Geelong CBD.
