Another blow against free speech in Australia

Posted by on April 19, 2017

Dendy Cinemas has joined the shameful list of Australian companies caving into the lies told by extremists.

Dendy has just announced they will cancel The Red Pill, a movie about men’s lives which was due to be screened in Newtown next week. Tickets for the screening have been sold out for weeks. Read this great article by Janet Albrechtsen in The Australian about the Red Pill and the ban by Dendy. Read Article

Last year we became the first country in the world to ban screenings of this movie

The Red Pill is a documentary by feminist filmmaker Cassie Jaye who set out to attack men’s rights activists but ended up exploring why important issues about the lives of men and boys so rarely get proper attention. Bettina Arndt - The Red Pill

The Red Pill is receiving world-wide acclaim – in the US it is currently the #1 Documentary on Google Play. 

Yet planned screenings last October in Australia were cancelled after extremist promoted lies about the contents of the movie, alleging it promoted violence and misogyny. Cinema owners received death threats and had their businesses attacked.

Social commentator Bettina Arndt has been working to organise screenings across the country through Fan-Force – an organisation which allows people to see whatever movies they choose. Fan-Force - The Red Pill (watch tralier)

The April 26 screening of The Red Pill at The Dendy in Newtown was the first Fan-Force screening to sell out although other events are planned across the country, often through large cinema chains like  Hoyts.

The Dendy decision shows an appalling disregard for their mainstream audience of men and women who were keen to see this movie. Men and women who realise that men matter too!

Feminist extremists have loud voices but they have no right to determine what other people in this free country choose to see.  Sign this change.com petition to protest this blatant attack on free speech. Sign Petition

And even more important, urgently book into other Red Pill screenings in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Adelaide and NSW Central Coast  – don’t let the wicked witches win! BUY TICKETS
