A decade ago filmmakers followed Phil Glendenning as he tracked down people who were deported by the Australian Government after their claims for protection were rejected. A Well Founded Fear is the story of Phil’s search.

This week the Edmund Rice Centre will host a special screening of this poignant film in the hopes of kickstarting a forum for new ideas activism and energy in solidarity.

“The event will be a good ‘coming together’ of the different groups in an informal way. I would reallly like to see the groups working together more. Activism can be heartbreaking, but it does not  have to be.” said event coordinator Stephen Langford.

Current activist groups, such as the Refugee Action Coalition will be present for the evening to discuss the main ideas and challenges facing refugee groups within Australia today.

Dec 5, Edmund Rice Centre, 15 Henley Rd, Homebush West. FREE. Info: www.erc.org.au/aw or Ph: (02) 8762 4200
