Event description

Description

Filmed over five years, this film documents an epic – and successfulstruggle to keep Northern NSW free of invasive gasfields. The campaign culminated with dramatic community action in the peaceful farming valley of Bentley. What happened set an historic precedent and helped unleash a unique and inspiring social movement.

Guest Speakers: Anne Kennedy and David Chadwick, both farmers from Coonamble Shire on the edge of the Pilliga. Anne and David's Coonamble Shire is reliant on water from the Great Artesian Basin which is under threat from Santos CSG. Both have both been fighting CSG for many years and are now on the frontline with plans for the gas pipeline to run through their local area.

Complimentary tea and coffee.
