Canberra Skeptics: Propaganda of the Conscription Debate
April 18, 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm UTC+10Free
In 1916 and 17, Australians were asked to vote on whether to send conscripts to fight in Europe. Campbell Rhodes, curator of the Museum of Australian Democracy at Old Parliament house in Canberra, will talk through examples of the discussion over conscription, how would we vote today, and what lessons there are in the conscription referenda a century later. After the talk, attendees are invited to join other Skeptics for dinner in the downstairs restaurant.
