Global Day for Darfur I
On the 17th September 2006 DAN took part in the first Global Day for Darfur by organising a mass demonstration on the corner of Bourke and Swanston Streets in the CBD. In planning this event DAN put out a call to a wide array of percussionists and African drummers to participate in the demonstration by creating a mass drumming circle to make NOISE for Darfur. Attendees of the demonstration wore blue headbands to symbolise the urgent need for the protection of a UN peacekeeping force in Darfur.
Film Screening - All About Darfur
DAN also ran a public film screening event on the 17th of September at a venue in Fitzroy involving a local band and screening Darfuri/British filmmaker Taghred Elsanhouri’s internationally acclaimed film, All About Darfur.
