Ocean Press Book Launch
Chile ? The Other September 11 is an anthology of reflections and
commentaries on the 1973 coup in Chile. This is a night commemorating
all victims of terror! The programme features:- ï Chilean music and
dance ï Poetry ï Book Launch ï Speaches by Pilar Aguilera & Ricardo
Fredes: Chilean activists and editors of Chile - The Other September 11.

Come along if you can't handle all the hype about September 11 . . .
Help us reclaim this date for Chileans and all victims of US-sponsored
terror. Join us in taking a stand against imperialism!

In 1973 the US government/ CIA backed a bloody coup in Chile, bringing a
brutal dictatorship into power. This dictatorship was in power for 17
years and was responsible for the deaths and dissappearances of
thousands of Chileans. This book reclaims the historical significance of
the "other" September 11 for all those who oppose U.S. interventionism
and seek a more just world. Included are articles, essays, speeches and
poems by Ariel Dorfman, Salvador Allende, Joan Jara, Beatriz Allende,
Pablo Neruda, Victor Jara and Fidel Castro.

FEVER - presented by Melbourne Workers Theatre
Where does the FEVER of the nation burn hottest?

FEVER reunites the team that created the multi award-winning Whoís
Afraid of the Working Class? ? writers Andrew Bovell, Patricia
Cornelius, Melissa Reeves and Christos Tsiolkas, composer Irine Vela and
director Julian Meyrick. Produced by Melbourne Workers Theatre in 1998,
Whoís Afraid of the Working Class? toured nationally the following year
and won numerous awards, including the Gold Awgie, the Jill Blewitt
Award, a Victorian Green Room Award and the Queensland Premierís
Literary Award.

FEVER is about the way humanity consumes that which nutures it. Set
against a landscape marked by a sense of turmoil and deprivation, the
connecting image in FEVER's 4 plays is the river as a line of
demarcation that separates people; as a body of water that must be
crossed to reach the promise of the other side; as a means of escape
from turmoil and delivery to what is unknown. It is a stinking rotten
sewer poisoning all who take from it and the source of renewal and

Written by Andrew Bovell, Patricia Cornelious, Melissa Reeves , Christos
Tsiolkas. Directed By Julian Meyrick
Performed by David Adamson, Rodney Afif, Tony Briggs, Daniela Farinacci,
Eugenia Fragos, LeRoy Parsons & Pauline Whyman
