BRINGS TOGETHER INDIGENOUS-LED MEDIA COLLECTIVES
BLOCKADE IMARC PRESENTS A SCREENING & DISCUSSION OF
THE CONDOR & THE EAGLE
Sunday, November 22nd at 7 PM Sydney-Melbourne Time
Q&A starts at 8:40pm AEDT - HERE.
"Blockade IMARC" is a grassroots alliance with a focus on shutting down the international mining and resources conference. We stand in opposition against extractivism and support communities standing on the front line of these destructive projects. The Condor and the eagle is an illuminating story of such Frontline resistance by communities against extractivist projects. We aim for this viewing to inspire inform the action we take when opposing land destructive industry and hope that it will move others to take action. This viewing will be followed by a radical panel discussion with protagonists from the documentary plus others.

This event is free for First Nations people, asylum seekers and refugees. This event is donation based and inclusive. No-one is turned away from the viewing due to a lack of funds. We suggest donations of $10 for those who are unwaged, $25 for those who are waged, $35 for a solidarity ticket, and $45 for a family/household ticket. We welcome extra donations. The donations will go towards Blockade IMARC, a grassroots alliance focussed on opposing extractivism, as well as to support the film impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities" and be used to provide small honorariums to our panelists and filmmakers for their time and expertise.
By joining us for this screening, you are supporting effective movement-building towards powerful change and calls to action. This event is part of the film impact campaign "No More Sacrificed Communities".
Our first events in July were a huge success. 6,000 people watched our film, 150,000 watched our panel discussions and we raised more than $25,000 for impacted communities. We therefore decided to keep organizing events on an even larger scale: we are currently organizing more than 100 online events until December, mobilizing hundreds of communities and organizations, presenting to large audiences the inspiring work being done by land defenders across the Americas. Join us and support frontline communities!
