The whole evening event is free and open to all, but only members are able to vote at the AGM. Why not join on the night?

Most of us are wary of extreme political views, but nevertheless they do seem to grab headlines in other parts of the world. This is not a modern phenomenon - PAG recently came cross this short shocking documentary of an event in the heart of New York City in 1939.

In 1939, 20,000 Americans rallied in New York’s Madison Square Garden to celebrate the rise of Nazism – an event largely forgotten from American history. A NIGHT AT THE GARDEN, made entirely from archival footage filmed that night, transports audiences to this chilling gathering and shines a light on the power of demagoguery and anti-Semitism in the United States.

The film was nominated for a 2019 Academy Award for Best Documentary Short and PAG has been given permission by the distributors to give it a public showing in the Isle of Man.

"In the current climate of intolerance, this footage is especially chilling." – New York Times
PAG, is now in its 14th year of operation and over that time has held about 100 free public meetings. Prior to the showing of 'A Night at the Garden' it will also hold its AGM commencing 7:30 pm and all members are urged to attend. Without continued support we will not be able to sustain our activities.Do join us!
