OK so the war has begun, which makes this event more important than ever. 'Le Resistance' is to take place on Friday March 28 at Seven Nightclub. This is a charity event, with all proceeds going to Oxfam Community Aid Abroad to assist those in need.

If we fill Seven Nightclub on the night we will generate almost $10,000 dollars for these people.

Oxfam Community Aid Abroad currently has a number of staff on the Iraqi border assisting those in need as well as training personnel in preparation for the worst. (Water, sanitation, aid, food etc). They are working directly with Oxfam Great Britain and Amnesty International in their work in the region.

"Oxfam Community AId Abroad's vision is of a fair world in which people control their own lives, their basic rights are achieved and the environment is sustained."

"Oxfam believes that a military strike on Iraq cannot be justified. Military action could trigger a major humanitarian crisis, jeopardising the lives of millions of women, children and men who are already suffering from a lack of food and access to clean water."

Unlike the rock community who have staged several anti war benefits, the electronic music community has been strangely quiet on this issue.

With thanks to the Fractured crew though, the first Melbourne club event in support of peace is upon us. Featuring a mash up of Melbourne's finest djs from the house, breaks and chill n' bass scene.

DJs currently confirmed for this event are:
Brewster B
Courtney King
Jelli D (Byron Bay)
Mr Ming
MC Ming

Mark John
John Course
Donni 1
Arlen De Silva
Angela Maison
Tony Crea
Guy Uppiah

Doors open 9pm
$10 on the door, with all proceeds going to Oxfam Community Aid Abroad
