The Untold Story of ANZAC: A people's history - Sat 25 April

"The Untold Story of ANZAC: a People's History"

The centenary of the bloody invasion at Gallipoli approaches, and amidst all the fanfare and glorification surrounding the 'birth of the nation', we pay tribute to the untold story of ANZAC: the people's history.

Join us for music, poetry and toasts as we remember the struggles of Aboriginal soldiers who fought while at home their humanity and sovereign rights were ignored, of the heroic unionists, women's groups and Quakers who struggled and were even jailed in the campaign against conscription and the war itself.

Featuring nationally acclaimed poets:
Maitland Schnaars and Amanda Joy

Music by:
The Catalpa Flute band.

M C Fremantle Councilor Sam Wainright

Adrian Glamorgan, The Quaker experience
Kamala Emanuel, re Women and war.
Barry Healy Socialist Alliance,
