Sydney Peace Foundation is thrilled to bring you an exciting opportunity to see 2014 #SydneyPeacePrize recipient Julian Burnside – Public‘s new documentary Border Politics, and to enjoy a Q&A with Burnside himself!
Border Politics follows Burnside as he travels the globe examining the harsh treatment of refugees at the hands of western democracies. This contemporary story is about the threat to human rights, the loss of democratic values and our increasingly heartless treatment of ‘the other’. Seventy years after the world constructed international conventions to ensure the horrors of World War 2 wouldn’t be repeated, Burnside finds it terrifying to see Australian and other western political leaders exploiting fears around border protection to extend political power.
Don’t miss this exciting opportunity to hear from Burnside on his experience filming Border Politics, and how we can turn the ship around and regain our humanity.
We are pleased to offer Sydney Peace Foundation supporters special discounted $15 tickets! Don’t miss out, join us for this exciting event.
