“Bimblebox” the documentary explores the huge Australian coal export industry from the grassroots up. For the people at Bimblebox Nature Refuge the experience of intrusive coal exploration is all too real: their nature refuge lies in the path of the world’s largest coal mines. In the film, Mike O’Connell, award-winning independent filmmaker, explores the resistance to big coal in the Galilee Basin. “Bimblebox” is named for the major flashpoint between big coal and ecology in Australia. The story however is bigger than Bimblebox. It’s for anyone who cares about Australia, our rivers and forests, global warming, and the ruthless power of the coal industry. The fate of Bimblebox Nature Refuge is shown in the context of community responses to the massive expansion of coal and coal seam gas mining across the eastern states of Australia.
Please bring your family and friends! This is a crucial time – learn about the threat coal mining poses to our precious water, land and wildlife in the Galilee Basin, and how you can help #SaveBimblebox
