Big Deal - Hughes Exclusive screening and panel
Time & Location
About the Event
WeAreHughes is very excited to invite you to an exclusive screening of BIG DEAL - is our democracy for sale? followed by a panel discussion with Craig Reucassel, Christiaan Van Vuuren and Zali Steggall OAM MP for us in Hughes.
BIG DEAL: Is our democracy for sale?
Craig Reucassel has partnered up with comedian Christiaan Van Vuuren to make the feature documentary Big Deal: Is our democracy for sale? We are thrilled to offer you an exclusive preview of the movie for you to watch at your convenience ( you will be sent the miove link a couple of days prior to the panel event). Then please join our panel event which will feature Craig Reucassel and other special guests. This is a Hughes event and will have some very Hughes specific content.
This film is going to be a game changer. It’s really tough to find ways of reaching Australians who care about good democracy, but have become cynical. Craig and Christiaan have nailed it, asking hard questions about the way big industries, like guns and fossil fuels, influence our politicians. The political analysis is hard-nosed and gripping, but it’s also a hilarious, heart-warming and ultimately hopeful story of people power.
Hughes is currently an example of democracy gone wrong. There is big money in our electorate compliments of Clive Palmer and his party The United Australia Party (UAP). Our seat via Craig Kelly, who is now leader of the UAP, is being used to take advantage of the exemptions that political parties have from privacy and spam laws to spread their propaganda. And finally, only 2.4% of Hughes constituents voted for the United Australia Party who are now our voice in Parliament. Was Hughes' democracy SOLD?
We want as many people as possible to join us for this event. We are making it free of charge for the first 100 people that register. This is possible due to donations from supporters.
