ECOBURBIA PRESENTS! ASTROTURF WARS
Friday November 4. 7.30 pm.
The Tea Party movement has taken American politics by storm. But is this truly a populist uprising or one of the greatest feats of propaganda ever seen? Australian filmmaker Taki Oldham sets out to answer this question, finding that behind the movement’s rhetoric of “freedom” versus “socialism” lies a highly co-ordinated network of shadow groups, funded by the likes of billionaire ideologues Charles and David Koch. Are the tea party protesters really just pawns in a plan to replace government with a privatised America?
This movie will be held at Ecoburbia – 16 Livingstone Street in Beaconsfield. We will be inside MORTUNG – our community space. There are some dining chairs available but feel free to bring a folding chair if you are more comfy – or some pillows for the floor. The space is not heated so dress appropriately.
We will not be sharing food over winter, but coffee and tea will be available, and we encourage you to stay and have a debrief after the movie. The movie will start at 7.30 pm
Please walk or come by bike. If you have to drive please park at the Primary School on Hale Road, not on Beard Street. See you at Ecoburbia!
Monday February 8th -featuring (all the way from SanFranciso via Melbourne) CelloJoe and Toni Tone.
Supported by Charlie MGee
CelloJoe records on stage with a loop pedal and produces intricate tapestries of harmony, melody, and rhythm. His beatboxing and funky cello grooves form a rich soundscape for intelligent lyrics and his music spreads love, joy, laughter and conscious vibrations. Basically he’s an international bicycle touring vagabond troubadour cellist beatboxer.
Toni Tone is a singer, dancer, puppeteer, artist and creator. She sings and raps with CelloJoe and starts the party everywhere she goes.
Kooky uke & clever lines based on the principles of permaculture,Charlie Mgee has been touring the world for the past 3 years with his band Formidable Vegetable Sound System and is back for a brief while on home turf in Freo.
