The Workers Solidarity Movement is hosting an event entitled 'What Sort Of
Anti-Racism Do We Need' in Dublin's Teachers Club (36 Parnell Square) on
Saturday September 25th, starting at 1pm. A screening of 'Holiday Camp' a
documentary on the Woomera Asylum Seeker camp break out will take place from
nine in the same venue.
After the passing of the citizenship referendum, nobody can deny that racial
prejudice is widespread in Ireland. Workers Solidarity Movement members, who
were active in the Campaign Against the Racist Referendum, are hosting this
meeting as a contribution to the discussion about how best to combat racism.
Admission is free and everyone is welcome.

A Video Screening of 'Holiday Camp' will take place after the 'Ideas and
Action' from nine in the Teachers Club. The pivotal action of this documentary
is the detention centre breakout, which occurred as part of a five-day long
direct action camp established next to the razor wire fences at Woomera, a
detention centre for asylum seekers in Australia.

Holiday Camp reclaims the voices of the marginalised, and connects the issues
of Indigenous dispossession, genocide, constructions of race and incarceration
policies, which are often portrayed as unrelated. The film suggests that the
policy of mandatory detention and raising of borders to protect fortresses of
privilege make us all un-free.
