Capitalism and its discontents

Capitalism is stumbling, empire is faltering, the floods and cyclones are intensifying. Yet many people are still grappling to understand these multiple crises and to find a way forward to a just future. It is the time to arm ourselves with knowledge and develop the skills we need to make a new world. A good place to start is with the educational events at Jura this month (not to mention hundreds of newly arrived radical books)!

Abortion democracy film screening

Accessible abortion on demand: Is law reform the solution?

When a Cairns couple were charged over a home abortion using RU486, the case highlighted the inaccessibility of medical abortion in Australia. At the same time the cost of surgical abortion has skyrocketed and services are mainly located in large metropolitan areas. Some feel abortion law reform will alleviate the problem. Is this the case?

Dear Jura friends,

The Juran People's Committee for Propaganda & Culture would love you to watch and discuss two great films with us this month...

Disaster capitalism

This month the People's Cinema at Jura is screening Naomi Klein's 'The Rise of Disaster Capitalism'. This documentary film features Klein explaining the ideas and research behind her bestselling book, The Shock Doctrine. In this riveting lecture and interview, Klein challenges and exposes the popular myth of the free market economy’s peaceful global victory. Around the world there are people with power who are cashing in on chaos, exploiting bloodshed and catastrophe to brutally implement their policies. They are the shock doctors.
