Nillumbik Environment Action Group and the Australian Conservation Foundation would like to invite you to a screening of Guarding The Galilee: a new 30 minute documentary film that takes us inside the fight to stop Adani coal.
Narrated by award-winning actor Michael Caton, the film features farmers, dive instructors and boat operators all concerned about the impacts that Adani’s Carmichael coal mine would have on water resources, climate and the reef.
Gautam Adani is an Indian billionaire who wants to build the biggest coal mine in Australia’s history in Central Queensland’s Galilee Basin. The Federal Government wants to give him $1 billion of public money to build a rail line from the mine to Abbot Point where the coal would be shipped to India.
If this mine goes ahead it would open up a coal resource that, if burned, would double Australia’s carbon emissions. Guarding The Galilee explores the impacts of this project and actions we can take to stop it.
Can you come along to the documentary screening? Please bring your family and invite your friends.
After the film we’ll discuss what concrete actions local people can take to make a difference to the campaign. Looking forward to seeing you for what promises to be a wonderful evening!
Ps, can’t come to the screening but still want to get involved? Sign up here!
