New Record in Australia: Most Protests in One Day



Great video with terrific ending about confronting the military industrial surveillance complex.

Latest documentary by multi-award winning Australian filmmaker, David Bradbury. A window into the passions and politics of the modern Australian peace movement.

Shot during the action-packed 2014 Canberra Peace Convergence at the Aboriginal Tent Embassy, Waging Peace tracks a convoy of activists who set out to break the world record for the most protest actions on a single day - 28 were held. Featuring Senator Scott Ludlum, US Iraq War veteran, Vince Emanuele and Bundjalung Elder Vincent Duraux, the film concludes with the powerful, historically significant Frontier Wars March on Anzac Day.

Responding to the perfect storm of wars, climate change and the global surveillance state, today's peace activists act with strategy and gusto; by targeting the industries and institutions which drive Australia's complicity and challenging the deepest of our cultural assumptions about war and Australia's history.
