Screening of the documentary "Guarding the Galilee"
Environmental/Social-Justice Organisations are joining forces during this month of May to put pressure on politicians and the government to block the Adani’s Carmichael project, which would involve the development of the largest coal mine in Australian history. Join us to watch the 30- minute documentary “Guarding the Galilee”, which explores the impacts that the Carmichael project would have on water resources, climate and the reef and documents the ongoing fight to stop it. A discussion will follow, focussing on our “duty to protect the earth and to ensure its fruitfulness for coming generations” (Pope Francis's “Laudato Si” encyclical letter).

The Morrison Government just caved to pressure from Adani and signed off on a crucial water plan. Can you call Labor Leader Bill Shorten and Shadow Environment Minister Tony Burke and ask them to commit to review Adani's approvals if Labor wins government in the upcoming federal election?
Adani need one crucial final approval from the Federal Government – their plan to manage precious groundwater. That could happen any day now. A new expert review of Adani's plan shows that it is drastically flawed and inadequate. We have to act fast to stop this approval.
