Anarchist Black Cross Film and food night


On Wednesday 4th of March at 8pm, Wellington Anarchist Black Cross will be screening the film
"Black August" at 128 Abel Smith St, Te Aro.

This is to be a fundraiser for the Operation 8 defendants, funds raised will go to the October 15 solidarity group.
Yummy food will be available to munch on during the film.
The Film will be followed with a talk from one of the Op8 defendants on being arrested and locked up as a political prisoner in Aotearoa with some time for Q & A.
Black August is a film about Black Panther George Jackson and the events that took place while he was incarcerated as a political prisoner, inside and outside the walls.Also it is a fairly good critique of the prison system and society at large that is as relevant today as when the events originally took place.
Further info on the film and links can be found through the ABC website in the news feature 'movie and meal night'
We look forward to seeing you there!
