DISCLAIMER – This is not organised by the local Randwick-Botany Greens. This alert is posted in support of Lock The Gate Alliance because it is an event in our local area.
We’re so pleased to invite you to a screening of a beautiful new film about the campaign to protect communities, water and the Pilliga forest from coal seam gas (CSG) in NW NSW.
Pilliga Rising will screen at the Bronte SLSC on Tuesday, 12 March at 6.30pm. Tickets are free or ‘pay what you can’. Don’t miss out on seeing this amazing film.
“Pilliga Rising reminds me that the power of community and everyday people coming together to protect each other and their most treasured resources can move mountains and change the world for the better.” – Musician, John Butler
“mesmerising, heartbreaking, exhilarating” Elizabeth Farrelly, Sydney Morning Herald
WHERE: Bronte Surf Life Saving Club
WHEN: Tuesday March 12, 2019 at 6:30pm – 8:30pm
TICKETS: Are free (or by donation). RSVP here to reserve your seat.
This event will feature Coonamble farmer, Adam Macrae, who appears in the film and whose property is on the route of the gas pipeline proposed to take gas from the Pilliga forest.
Drilling through groundwater sources like the Great Artesian Basin means communities like Adam’s are at risk of losing access to their only sources of water as they suffer through drought.
Invite your friends and family and let’s pack out this screening to show that Sydney people care about stopping this environmental disaster in rural NSW.
