Border Politics Q&A Screening at Dendy Cinemas

Border Politics Q&A screening on Saturday, July 14, 4PM with Julian Burnside, the well-known human rights barrister, and filmmaker Judy Rymer

I wonder where our democracy is going?

Seventy years after the world constructed international conventions to ensure the horrors of World War II wouldn’t be repeated, Burnside finds it terrifying to see both Australian and other western political leaders exploiting fears around border protection to extend political power. He questions whether the West has lost its moral compass, adopting ideas that reject humanity and undermine democracy. He concludes, this erosion of human rights poses a threat to the very democratic values that define Western society.
