 David Bradbury’s documentary AMERICA & ME to premiere in Melbourne

Renowned filmmaker David Bradbury will be in Melbourne for the Victorian premiere of his latest documentary which chronicles his time in the US during the 2016 presidential election campaign.

AMERICA & ME will screen at the Cinema Nova on Friday March 16 at 6.30pm and will be followed by a Q&A with the filmmaker. 

AMERICA & ME documents the filmmaker’s observations over three months in the US during the lead up to the surprise election of Donald Trump. A one-man band and always traveling with his camera, David Bradbury was easily able to slip into gear and start filming while on tour with his antimilitarism documentary War on Trial.

Eight US cities later he chronicled what was happening on the streets of America; 40 years after Ronald Reagan introduced the economic theories of Milton Friedman and the infamous Chicago Boys to the world.

Bradbury interviews veterans of America’s failed wars to maintain Empire, gets down in the gutter with the homeless to find out what life is like on the streets, speaks to a nun who was violated by the military junta in Guatemala under the directions of a CIA operative, goes to the US/Mexican border where Trump plans to build the Wall, films out front of CIA Headquarters in Langley, Virginia where deadly drone attacks are ordered up every ‘Killer Tuesday’ by the US President…and ends up at the Standing Rock protest camp for Election Day.

These vignettes give context to Bradbury’s critique of the American penchant for empire, using telling moments from his earlier films shot on the edge of the American colossus – Nicaragua No Pasaran, Chile Hasta Cuando?, Frontline and South of the Border.

 Terms of Reference

On 6 February 2018 the following matter was referred to the Economics References Committee for inquiry and report by 14 August 2018:

The appropriateness and thoroughness of the site selection process for a national radioactive waste management facility at Kimba and Hawker in South Australia, noting the Government has stated that it will not impose such a facility on an unwilling community, with particular reference to:

  1. the financial compensation offered to applicants for the acquisition of land under the Nominations of Land Guidelines;
  2. how the need for ‘broad community support’ has played and will continue to play a part in the process, including:
  3.             the definition of ‘broad community support’, and
  4.             how ‘broad community support’ has been or will be determined for each process advancement stage;
  5. how any need for Indigenous support has played and will continue to play a part in the  process, including how Indigenous support has been or will be determined for each process advancement stage;
  6. whether and/or how the Government’s ‘community benefit program’ payments affect broad community and Indigenous community sentiment;
  7. whether wider (Eyre Peninsular or state-wide) community views should be taken into  consideration  and,  if  so,  how  this  is  occurring  or  should  be occurring; and
  8. any other related matters.

PETITION No Nuclear Waste Dump for South Australia  http://sagreens.markparnell.org.au/no_waste_dump_for_sa

 

PETITION Citizens of Australia demand action to enforce South Australian Nuclear Waste Storage Facility (Prohibition) Act 2000 Online Open letter requesting ACTION. Dear Commissioner of Police, http://petition.dyndns.org/index.php

 

the Federal Govt’s proposed dump at Barndioota is still on the agenda, despite the opposition of the Adnyamathanha people, and other local residents. Although the Federal Govt calls this waste “low and intermediate” level, there is doubt that this is accurate by international standards, and what it means in terms of toxicity.

  5. Thanks for spotting the protests on this web space.
    We attended a march/rally listed here…
    handed out various media to alert The Public
    about the scam to make things seem so dire
    while often giving the only “out” as more
    URANIUM MINING and NUCLEAR NIGHTMARE.

    “People who are unable to stand for anything…
    will fall for anything.”
