How it operates ....
the Embassy is a non-profit organisat-
ion totally independent non -govern-
ment organisation, registered in 1981.
It survives on donations and very small
project grants usually from local gov-
ernment, as the Australian government
gives little funding to non religious hum-
an rights organisations.
The Embassy was established at 41 Phillip St, Sydney,
starting with renting the basement in 1975. The building, in a row of
historic terraces near Circular Quay - is part of the First Government
House Precinct. In 1978, the rest of the building started to become
available so the Embassy could be fully set up
This developed into producing regular radio programs such as Freek Out on every Blue Mountains test broadcasts since 1988 as well as weekly on Radio Manly Warringah where we developed our Alternative Television project that produced programs for community TV test broadcasts as well as an annual Poetry Picnic that became the Alternative Arts Festival. From 1982 we set up group housing projects.
