Friends Who Are Going
Event description

Description

Are YOU concerned about Climate Change?

Are YOU concerned about our Great Barrier Reef?

Are YOU concerned that over a billion dollars of taxpayers' money may be 'lent' to a billionaire for a mine that many economists agree is not financially viable?

If you answered "Yes", you're not alone!



Stop Adani North Sydney invites you to come to this exciting event where you'll see two important films surrounding these issues.

In addition to the two films, you will hear vital facts from speakers, and learn how we (as a community) can come together to raise our voices and stand up for renewables and a clean, healthy future for our planet!


Doors open at 6pm, with the evening beginning with a brief introduction, before the screening of the wonderful Australian-made short documtary-style film Guarding the Galilee. Then, you will hear vital facts prior to seeing Al Gore's new film An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power.


The event will officially end at the cinema by 9pm. However, should you wish to discuss your thoughts on the film, the mine, the effects of climate change, or ideas as to what else could be done to Stop Adani, some of our group will be heading to a local venue, and we will welcome you there.


About Guarding the Galilee


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 capture the raw beauty of Central Queensland, 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 through to the Coral Sea. On the coast, a boat owner operating out of the Airlie beach tourist hotspot worries about the hundreds of extra ships steaming through the Great Barrier Reef each year. Meet these and many others engaged in this fight and find out exactly what mining billionaire Adani has planned for Australia.


About An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power


A decade after An Inconvenient Truth brought climate change into the heart of popular culture comes the riveting and rousing follow-up that shows just how close we are to a real energy revolution. Former Vice President Al Gore continues his tireless fight, traveling around the world training an army of climate champions and influencing international climate policy. Cameras follow him behind the scenes-in moments private and public, funny and poignant-as he pursues the empowering notion that while the stakes have never been higher, the perils of climate change can be overcome with human ingenuity and passion. Renowned filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk (Audrie & Daisy, 2016 Sundance Film Festival) have taken the baton from 2006 Academy Award-winner Davis Guggenheim. What started then as a profound slide show lecture has become a gorgeously cinematic excursion. Come along on an inspirational journey across the globe that delivers the tools to heal our planet. The question is: Will YOU choose to take up the baton?
