Confest Easter 2010

In October 1976, a leaflet was distributed from the Parliament House office of Dr Jim Cairns. It was a statement inviting all ‘who feel the need for radical change’ to a forthcoming event. It stated that the event would be host to: Aborigines, ethnic communities, women’s liberation groups, peace activists, homosexuals, lesbians, members of rural and city communes and co-operatives and those concerned with self-management and work democracy, law reform, ideology, theories of social change, alternative food, health, energy, living structures, education, psychotherapy, yoga and meditation.
