    The DVD of the Trial of John Winston Howard

Thank you for your order of

The Trial of John Winston Howard

Part pantomime, part political satire - it is fabuolus fun. In the lead up to one of the most important elections we have faced, this is a timely and very serious message to remind the people in your life of the shame this little man has brought down on our country.

Julian Burnside and Rachel Doyle make formidable legal combatants. Who else but Linda Briskman, the head of the Centre for Human Rights could be a better choice for God. Rod Quantock wilfully incites the crowd and Max Gillies in the persona of Howard enjoys what little support he can from Her Gracious Majesty in the person of Gerry Connolly - who also brings us Paul Keating with his familiar and rambunctious interjections!

The Australian Fabians

All proceeds of the DVD sales go to refugee support groups such as The Asylum Seekers Resource Centre and the Brigidine Asylum Seekers Project.

You may have seen the show, now you can share it with your family and friends .... If you missed it or would like to share it - it's not too late.

Get the DVD and invite your friends and neighbours around to hold your own trial in the tight security of your own home - around the Barbecue or a keg!

Some accolades:

"Thought the event was terrific and would like the DVD as well!"

"Congratulations on a marvellous show. Will a recording of the evening be available? I'd be willing to pay a reasonable amount to get one."

"Please let me know when the DVD of the trial is ready. Greatly enjoyed the show - was a bit scared waiting in the street. Thought ASIO may have been checking us out for being un-Australian and partaking in a threat to democracy as interpreted by JWH."
