2018-03-10 IWD Party

The Latin American Social Forum and Green Left Weekly organised an evening IWD party at the Newtown Neighbourhood Centre with a guest Latin American women’s choir from Brisbane.

We opened the entertainment  at about 6:30pm with six songs:

  • Acknowledgement
  • Union Maid (Sally)
  • Warrior
  • Bread and Roses
  • Don’t Be Too Polite Girls
  • Makhosikazi

This was a lively, informal party with food, drink, and diverse entertainment. In keeping with the host organisations’ general policies of social inclusiveness men were welcome.

Other performances included a Venezuelan dancer, the Sanchez family band, Kurdish singers and dancers, and Latin American folk songs by Mary Jane Field. The night ended with clearing away the chairs for a mass group circle dance.
