3CR Film Fundraiser

Bring your friends for a movie night out at 3CR’s screening of the new political comedy ‘Pride’ on Thursday 6 November. Set in the Margaret Thatcher’s England in the summer of 84, ‘Pride’ is the story of how a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists join forces with the National Union of Mineworkers to raise money to support the strikers' families.

The world is awash with digital communication, yet there’s never been such a lack of political alternatives. Information is the new commodity and truly alternative visions for justice, equity and sustainability remain elusive. Thankfully, community and alternative media continue to step into the void to fight for community justice, action and alternatives. Despite all that we know about the importance of representation, it is still a revolutionary act to put a mic in the hand of someone denied a voice, and more than four decades later 3CR Community Radio continues to do just that. Fight For Your Mic captures the station’s ongoing commitment to fighting for a better world through the medium of radio, and during our annual Radiothon fundraiser we ask all our supporters to donate so that we can stay radical and independent. Donate now or call the station on 03 9419 8377.

National Sorry Day is an annual event that has been held in Australia on 26 May, since 1998. On 26 May 1997, the Bringing Them Home report was tabled in Parliament. First Nations communities and organisations had been campaigning for an inquiry that would address the general public's ignorance of the history of forced removals because it was hindering the recognition of the needs of its victims and their families and the provision of services that they needed.

Stolenwealth Games

Help 3CR send a team of broadcasters to the Stolenwealth Games Protest April 4 - 15 2018, Queensland. We have 30 Limited Edition ‘Divine Intervention’ prints signed by Robbie Thorpe and Tom Civil. The “Divine Intervention” fire crest was a collaboration between Robbie Thorpe and Tom Civil in 2006 in the lead up to the  Melbourne Commonwealth (Stolenwealth) Games, and the Queen's visit. The crest symbolises the acknowledgement of Indigenous Law in Australia. Lightening strikes, igniting Indigenous Law represented by fire amongst the wattle branches, and in turn freeing the kangaroo and emu from their place in the 'Australian Coat of Arms'. The kangaroo and the emu then warm themselves by the fire. We are selling these limited edition screen prints for $100. We also have T-shirts $25 and tote bags for $20 each. So come down to the station during business hours and get some beautiful art and support an important project.

Billabong Beats is modelled on a traditional style “camp” and our philosophy of respect is based on the Sacred Fire that is corner stone to our production. The Sacred Fire opens a port-hole to The Dream-Time & connects the listener to the Lore of the land & to the Spirit of the land.
