A lively debate followed by launch of Overland 225

FairAus-cropDebate: ‘Does a “common future” mean overhauling our political system?’

6pm, Friday 9 December
The Toff in Town
252 Swanston St, Melbourne

To launch Overland’s final edition of 2016, which also contains the winners of this year’s Fair Australia Prize, Overland and the NUW are hosting a lively debate on participatory democracies and the future.

Six excellent speakers are lined up to thrash it out on the night.

Arguing for the overhaul: national secretary of the NUW, Tim Kennedy, former editor of The Big Issue, Melissa Cranenburgh, and co-founder of the Safe Schools Coalition Victoria, Roz Ward.

And fighting the tide will be former assistant secretary of the ACTU, Tim Lyons, Junkee Politics Editor, Osman Faruqi, and New Matilda‘s national affairs correspondent, Ben Eltham.

You don’t want to miss this.

Free food. Free drinks. Free event. And copies of Overland 225 available on the night.
