Film Screening: Rocking the Foundations

Date and Time: 
Sunday, October 17, 2010 -
2:00am to 4:23am

The Juran People's Committee for Propaganda & Culture presents another film screening and discussion afternoon. This time we'll be screening 'Rocking the Foundations: A Film by Pat Fiske on the NSW Builders Labourers Federation 1940-1975'.
"An outstanding historical account of the Green Bans first introduced by the New South Wales Builders Labourers Federation in the 1970s in response to community demand to preserve inner- city parkland and historic buildings. One of the first women to be accepted as a builders labourer, filmmaker Pat Fiske traces the development of a quite singular union whose social and political activities challenged the notion of what a union should be."
