This will be an opportunity to view the documentary Guarding the Galilee and learn more about the dangers for our environment and the Great Barrier Reef if the proposed Adani mine goes ahead.
This event is being hosted by the members of the Whitehorse Combined Churches Social Justice Group, and supported by Eastern Climate Action Melbourne (ECAM).
We will have three guest speakers:
- Basha Stasak, Stop Adani campaigner at ACF
- Matt Rogers, Stop Adani campaigner at Market Forces
- Reverend Alex Sangster, Uniting Church minister and member of Australian Religious Response to Climate Change
- Reverend Dispin John, parish priest at St John's Parish who will share his story of his hometown in India where Adani is currently trying to build a massive coal port
Presented by Queensland born actor Michael Caton, Guarding the Galilee is a 30 minute documentary on the battle to stop the biggest coal mine in Australian history, Adani’s Carmichael project. The award-winning documentary team captures the raw beauty of the Queensland outback, where Adani’s mine threatens essential water resources. Just downstream from the proposed mine, a grazier fears for the impact on the river that quenches the thirst of his cattle, and flows to the Coral Sea. On the coast, a boat owner operating out of the Airlie Beach tourist hotspot worries about hundreds of extra ships steaming through the Great Barrier Reef each year.
We will be having a gold coin donation. All proceeds will go to ACF.
