Constructing Fear

"Constructing Fear" is a documentary film about Australia's secret industrial inquisition -- and how an "evil and pernicious" Government body threatens the liberty and safety of thousands of ordinary people.

It's the untold story of a secretive industrial inquisition unleashed in pursuit of the Howard Government's building industry reforms. This inquisition has had a startling impact on the safety and civil liberties of ordinary men and women at work in Australia.

Ours is a story of people being singled out, stripped of their rights and intimidated. What makes "Constructing Fear" so compelling as a documentary is not just the fact that the mainstream media have ignored the story but the bravery of the few who've dared to fight back.

.
A documentary exposing the activity of an industrial inquisition targeting building workers across Australia. “Constructing Fear” shows how these workers are the front line in an attack on civil liberties that has implications for every Australian.

Watch Frank's story

Since 2005, the Australian Building Construction Commission (ABCC) has targeted hundreds of workers. The ABCC conducts closed tribunals and seeks individual fines of up to $28,600. Those summonsed cannot refuse to attend a hearing; they cannot refuse to answer questions and they cannot tell anyone, including their families, what happened in the hearing. Penalty? Six months in prison!

The ABCC’s operations have been described as "…foreign to the workplace relations of civilised societies, as distinct from undemocratic and authoritarian states." (Federal Court Justice Marshall, 2004)
