'Our Generation' is launched to a packed Capitol Theatre in Melbourne

It was an amazing and inspiring night in Melbourne! The launch of the Our Generation documentary filled out the Capitol Theatre. 500 people in attendance! 
All of MAICs posters and leaflets were snapped up, with people keen to get more of their friends, family and workmates involved in the campaign.

This Friday's rally, part of the National Day of Protest against the NT Intervention, is looking to be an absolute corker! 

But now's the time to step it up a grear. The last week leading up to a rally is crucial. To make the rally as big and as successful as it can be, we need to make sure EVERYONE knows about it. More posters and leaftlets are available to be picked up from outside New International Bookshop. Lets plaster the city with them! And go to our Facebook page and invite everyone to the rally. Copy the text below and email all your friends. Send a viral sms around with the rally details and 'pass it on' at the end. Think creatively!

If you're interested in getting more involved in MAIC, we welcome folks to come to the weekly meetings:  every Monday at 6.30pm at New International Bookshop in Trades Hall (cnr Lygon and Victoria Streets). 

This Monday, we'll be talking over the Jobs With Justice campaign (an introduction for beginners about what this part of the Internvention is all about). We'll also be preparing for the upcoming rally. And we'll perhaps look a bit ahead to what sort of things MAIC can do in the future. Bring your ideas and enthusiasm!



Jobs with Justice NOT Work for rations!

Apply the Racial Discrimination Act in Full!
