We welcome like-minded groups to put on events in our space. Below is a selection of images from gigs and other Jura events over the last couple of years.

F*CK MAY 68. FIGHT NOW! Red and Black Forum on Contemporary Athenian Anarchists

Date and Time: 
Sun, 24/08/2014 - 2:00pm to 4:00pm

This talk will look at the contemporary Athenian anarchist and anti-authoritarian milieu and their on-the-ground struggles against capitalism, the state and the rise of fascism.

Presented by Nick – a Jura Collective member who recently completed a phd at Macquarie University, based on his research in Athens.

Nick will consider how militant protest actions act as expressions of collective grievance, desire for retaliation against police injustices and as manifestations of anarchist and anti-authoritarian praxis. He will also explore how varying shades of anarchic tendencies and ensuing ideological and practical disagreements are, for the most part, overcome in these often violent Athenian street-protests.

 

The talk will be followed by discussion.

2pm, Sunday 24 August at Jura.

Indigenous activists have called for support this Sunday and Monday to defend the Aboriginal Tent Embassy and The Block in Redfern.The Embassy is expecting an eviction attempt any time on July the 6th and 7th. It's a racist attack and a class war. It's part of the big push to remove poor and working class people from the inner city to make room for those with more money. Come down and show solidarity.

"On July 7th, the development of new housing is set to occur at the Block in Redfern. The bulldozers will attempt to roll in to erase centuries of Aboriginal occupation, and four decades of Aboriginal social housing. An Aboriginal Tent Embassy stands in their way, and mob are calling for our support. You can visit or stay at the Embassy at anytime, but a specific invitation has been made for your support on Sunday 6th and Monday 7th of July. Let’s resist the enclosure of the Block as another shopping mall, as another block of flats that people on low-incomes can’t afford to live in."

Please also note that we don't know what time the construction workers and cops will get there so it might be best to show up early. We can have a yarn and a cuppa until we have to blockade
