The Higgins Climate Action Group invites you to a community screening and discussion of Guarding the Galilee.
Whether or not you have heard Queensland politicians spruiking the benefits of Adani’s Carmichael coal mine, come along to hear what actual Queenslanders (and Indians) have to say about it, and what effects this mine will have on ALL Australians, our Great Barrier Reef and our planet.
We will also hear about the plight of the Bimblebox Nature Reserve which is also in the Galilee Basin and threatened by mining. This highlights similar issues about people valuing what is underneath the ground more than our priceless natural heritage.
After that, we would like to hear what you all have to say, and want to do.
Doors open at 6:45 for a 7:00pm start. A gold coin donation is requested to cover hiring costs.
Who are we? The Higgins Climate Action Group are local volunteers dedicated to raising community awareness about the adverse effects that Adani's Carmichael coal mine will have if it's allowed to proceed. We formed about six months ago, and operate under the guidance of the Australian Conservation Foundation. In that time we have collected petitions, performed surveys, staged community actions outside Kelly O’Dwyer’s office, and organised several community discussions such as this one. We would welcome more members!
