Subject: “Better Public Transport – No Road Tunnels.”
In addition to opposing Sir Rod Eddington’s mega road tunnels, we are campaigning on “Bring Back The Connies” (Tram Conductors) and so improve public transport. At this meeting we are showing short films from up-and-coming Film Directors.
This will include Lester Francois’ documentary “Tram State” which follows four ticket inspectors as they patrol the public transport system. Phillip Donnellon gives us the recent troubled history of tram conductors and insights into their campaigns. In addition, Doug Jordan known to many Melburnians as one of the hosts on the 3CR City Limits program but also a former Tram Conductor, will speak on “Why Melbourne Needs Tram Conductors”.
Open Mike: We want to hear from member groups and others the latest news of your campaigns.
Time: 12:45 pm for 1 pm to approximately 3 pm (including afternoon tea.)
Date: Saturday 9 August 2008
Venue: Upstairs, Nth Melbourne Library 66 Errol St. North Melbourne. (Two doors along from the corner of Queensberry and Errol Streets)
