Join us to celebrate the end of our fundraiser on Thursday 27 Feb with another film screening and get-together at our Friends of the Earth base in Collingwood.
We'll be screening Rocking the Foundations, the legendary tale of the Green Bans movement of the 1970s. The Green Bans saw the NSW Builders Labourers Federation (BLF) Union go beyond securing fair wages and conditions for workers to fight for social, political and environmental issues.
When new developments in Sydney threatened important parks, open spaces and historical areas, the BLF stepped up to support local community and the Green Bans movement was formed.
This will be a night for us to draw from historical lessons of the past as well as see that community struggles can and have been won before. We'll learn about the power of community and unions working together!
Let's get inspired and ready for action in our own campaign to ensure Melbourne becomes a more liveable city for all!
Social and environmental justice are inextricably linked and in order to achieve climate justice, unions and community groups must work together.
Tickets will also help push us up to our 15K fundraiser goal, which will then be matched by a generous donor! These funds will go towards our campaigns to stop the North East Link and advocate for Melbourne Metro 2 in the lead up to the 2021 budget.
Bring cash for yummy snacks and other goodies, and get ready for a splendid time!
When: Thursday 27th Feb, 6-8pm
